The Love Of My Life
It was Love at First Sight.
He´s tall, dark and handsome.
He has long black hair floating in the wind,
Big shiny brown eyes that penetrate deep into my soul,
And he is wild... oh, so wild, and I love him to bits.
When he leans his head on my shoulder and I feel his breathing on my neck, it sends shivers all the way down my spine.
His presence just shakes me to my very core.
He was born a “free spirit”, but his spirit was broken by philistines.
When we met it was love at first sight,
We heard each other’s call.
He is still carrying bravely all the wounds from the past,
physical, emotional and spiritual.
He sought me for love and comfort and, in return,
he is filling me with what my heart & soul were seeking.
The blinkers he had been wearing for so long were removed
so that he could, at long last, see the world
from another perspective.
And, with love, patience, and perseverance, he has become tame and approachable and also my best friend.

About this poem:This is all about a horse called Swan, a white 27-year-old gelding, that I´ve been sponsoring in a horse rescue centre where I used to volunteer my services.
His riding days are unfortunately over, and he is now relying on kind-hearted people to help pay for his keep and care for him, and give him the love that he needs for the remaining years of his life.
