Not Enough Horses

                                                                                                                                                                        .

Pour up a cup

and sit in the light.

It’s past time

for forgetting.

Spent too long

just passing time,

as if this life

were never ending.

 

So many sorrows,

so many trials,

not enough horses,

and not enough miles

to ride.

I don’t want to spend

my life

just getting by.

 

Sit in the trees,

outside in the morning.

Sip my coffee,

enjoy the day,

before this world

gets warm and roaring,

and the fire burns away.

 

The sky is blue

up there above,

and down here

we know

there are tears,

but there is love.

Not enough horses

and too much others stuff,

makes it seem

like we’re missing the point.

 

I don’t want to spend my life

just getting by.

Not enough horses,

and too many miles to ride.

Taking it all in stride.

Love it every time.

Look in the sky

and see the signs.

Sitting here

in morning light.
