My baby girl

How I loved you so.

From you rubbed off forelock,

To your uneven toes.

--

I dreamed of you and I

In a professional rodeo someday.

Olympic gold medalists,

We were champions at bay.

--

You were faster than lighting,

And turned on a dime.

My dream horse,

From the moment we locked eyes.

--

You were my beautiful bay,

With the Roman nose.

We were destined to fame,

Until you started to go lame.

--

Your fast pace slowed,

Because of the limp.

Your weak ankle showed.

This wasn't meant to be your home.

--

Why so young,

Did this arthritis hit?

I only got to ride you once,

Before my champion dreams shattered to bits.
