God's Gift


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016 with permission of the Author.

God asked me what I wanted in life.

I said to him,

I want someone bold and brave and handsome,
Someone big and strong,
Someone who will protect me no matter what,
Love me no matter what.

Someone who I can tell my secrets,
Someone who will keep my promises,
Someone who will stay with me always.

I want someone who gives warm hugs,
Someone who makes me laugh,
Someone I trust with my life.

Someone who is always happy to see me,
Someone eager to please me,
Someone who is easily pleased.

I want someone to take me to the ends of the earth and back,
Someone who will conquer any obstacle for me,
Someone whom I can grow old with.

I want someone, a best friend of such,
Someone to lean on,
A shoulder to cry on.

Someone who will misbehave,
Someone with a wild heart,
But someone who will always come back to me.

And so God gave me a horse.
