riding

i told you not to worry
as you went riding off like that
in the morning, on your only horse.
you got small as you moved away.
that’s how i like to see you, babe,
with the sun watching you going
towards horizon and what you dream.
you ask if what you have inside is worth giving away.
my advice: give it all, babe.

now you are gone, and i don’t want you to forget
how beautiful you sound calling over your shoulder:
saying how much you love,
and i want to write you the same.
i hope my words find a way.
i’m so glad i know you, babe.

we sat at that wood table
after your last breakfast of sweet corn & potatoes.
and you were unsure you knew how to be
the best person you could be, for your journey,
but i told you not worry
as you went riding off like that
in the morning, on your only horse.
you got small as you moved away.
my advice: give it all, babe.
