When father time caught my mare the leaves were turning brown. She was suffering and couldn’t eat it was time to put her down.
It’s hard to do what you need to when your eyes are soakin’ wet. I thought about my childhood and waited for the vet.
I held her halter, talked to her and looked her in the eye. She had no way of knowing what was making her friend cry.
I guess I wasn’t ready. When she fell it made me weep. I rubbed her nose and sang to her. She slowly went to sleep.
A breeze blew down from somewhere and brushed away the tears, like a kiss from Heaven for all the happy years.
In my mind she’s in a meadow, the grass is long and green. She teaches every kid to ride and becomes their favorite dream.
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see.
The sun will rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me.
I know how much you loved me, as much as I love you.
And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and petted me with her hand.
I thought about our lives together, I know it must be sad, I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.
So when tomorrow starts without me don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me I'm right there in your heart.
