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.
