No jokes please.

I only need help with searching for a post by someone who wrote a gorgeous poem once. She didn't start the thread so I am having trouble.

Any hints, other than asking Bill to fix the bleeding search function?

What was the subject of the poem? It might help us remember. ie, death of a pet. etc

Taff was it a rather funny, well written one? If it's the one I'm thinking of, I think it was Gonerama or Flicka who posted it. They didn't write it, it was anom.

No, it wasn't a funny poem; it was very moving. About loss.

I have searched 'foal' as it was posted on a thread about the loss of a-

Wait a minute. Maybe that thread hadn't been about the loss of a foal but the loss of a horse (!). I am not going to search 'horse'. Not on a horse forum.

Did anyone lose a much loved horse and remember a poem posted on your thread in order to help you? About a year or two or three ago?

It wasn't by Anon (a proliffic writer of poems). It was written by a cbh poster.

I'm not sure if this is what you were looking for Taff. This is a poem written by Lea Owens for her mum.

For my mum...written by Lea Owens.

Remember me with laughter, do not forget with tears,
For I remain the one you love, so put aside those fears.
When you ride or laugh or sit alone, just know that I’m still near,
For I remain bound to this earth by all that I hold dear.

And when you see the horses play at dawn or in the night,
Please know that I’m there with them riding bold and good and light.
And when you’re out competing, look to the horse I knew,
‘Cos I’ll be right there with it, still trying for the blue.

It’s not about how long I stayed, just that I stayed at all,
It’s not about you losing me, I merely crossed a wall.
On this side there are horses that need the care of souls
Who know how to handle them and raise the tiny foals.

So do not think you’ve lost me into an endless night,
I’m just caring for the horses who’ve moved into the light.
I’m still riding, I’m still loving, I’m still me and I’m still here –
You just can’t feel my fingers as I wipe away that tear.

Rest In Peace mum, will carry you with me every time I ride.

Thanks Queen_V but no, it wasn't written my Lea-owens.

It was written by 1st foal.
