He’s behind the door, waiting for me

His ears perked up, alert

I open the stall door, he’s all I want to see

He provides me great comfort

His breath, soothing

His eyes, moving

I trust him, and he trusts me

He’s like a lap dog, very cuddly

The bond between human and horse is real

But words put into phrases can’t describe how I feel

James is my horse, he makes my life whole

No one can replace my heart, that he stole.
