Hoofbeats in Heaven


As my candle, burning bright

Sends shadows off on this dark night

It offers peace, and hope and love

To the horses dancing up above.


My prayers and thoughts will help them find

Beloved friends they left behind.

So they may comfort us in turn,

And thus it is my candle burns.


With quiet tears, lovingly shed

I hear the horses, overhead.

Their pounding hooves are thunder stirred,

For another other friend has joined the herd.
