Good Horses to Ride
Well my friends, it’s another day, another dollar
Another milestone crossed in this life
I may not be just where I want to be
But, at least I have a good horse to ride.
Life was trying at times this past year,
Sometimes it felt like I was trekking the Great Divide
But, you see these were just lessons learned
And I always had a good horse to ride.
Tears came and went on the back of my trusty steed,
As I pondered all of life’s crazy strife.
And as we slow-loped through the worries & cares
I was never more thankful for my good horse to ride.
The time in the saddle was always well spent
It signified a peaceful state of mind.
Whether climbing mountain trails or pushing cows home
I always had a good horse to ride.
I spent time with friends, old & new,
Exploring the wilderness and new countryside
Miles upon miles of trails we trekked,
And all of ‘em on good horses to ride.
As this year draws to an end
And I reflect back on it all in stride
I realize I have so much to be grateful for
But I’m most grateful for the good horse I ride.
So, may your new trails ahead lead you safely home
May you give it your all in this crazy life.
But above all else, my new year’s wish for you
Is that you always have good horses to ride.
