written about a time my sister and i were riding , feeling free in the midst of living in an abusive environment
Our lives, heavy and weighted
The four hooves beneath us give us wings
Our spirits could soar
Free to dream, imagine, dance, and sing
Her small arms around me,
Hold tight as she clings
I want to make it right,
Make the horror go away
The galloping horse
My sister, my friend
Our lives would change, of course
But now, in this segment of time,
It was ours-to be, to laugh, to be free

|How endeering to be able to show love to one another.
I have no sister, no brother.
It is always easier if one can share the good and the sad with someone.
A lovely write.

|You were blessed in a small way to have a sister to cling to and protect as best you could and to comfort when comfort was needed. Not that abuse is every tolerable but to know you can still love and be loved today may will be because of the love you and your sister shared all those years ago.
