IN LOVING MEMORY
"To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die. Trust that there will come
a time when precious memories will change your tears to smiles. I am not gone,
I'm just away…Off in the land where Horses Play. I leave this earth knowing,
with the last breath I draw, that my fate was always safest in your hands.
Thank you for loving me and having the courage to let me go. You helped me
gently into the night. We will meet again.
The day will come when I will suddenly stop and look in the distance. My eyes
will be intent, my eager body quivering, suddenly I will begin to run from my
herd, flying over the green grass, my legs carrying me faster and faster. You
have been spotted, and when we finally meet, we cling together in reunion,
never to be parted again. The happy kisses will rain upon my face, your hands
will caress my head, and you will look once more into my trusting eyes, so long
gone from your life, but never absent from your heart."
