Riding With The Horses - Poem by Della Perry
Wind rushes past my face, I feel so free; so alive
I can feel the rush running through my veins
My long hair cascades away from my face
My back arched in excitement.
A whoop from my lips, cannot hold in my joy.
I decide to shout out loud, the breeze carries my voice away.
I stand up, holding tightly to the reins
Feeling the rhythm as we ride those waves.
The strength is magnificent, yet I'm in control.
I have never been so alert, so alive.
Yes, I know that I am running with them
That when I am riding those majestic creatures
Along the crest of the waves
That I will be gone.
I will be on my journey to the next life,
My dream, dreamt a million times, taking me there.
And even though a life has ended
A new existence will have begun.
