It was twenty years ago today
This pony came into my life.
She’s been beside me ever since
Through good times and through strife.
I’m thankful for her partnership
In work and love and play.
The gifts she’s repeatedly given me
I can never completely repay.
That she changed my life completely,
There is absolutely no doubt.
Despite that, I can honestly say
It couldn’t have better turned out.
I‘m honored and I’m humbled
Every time she nickers ‘hi.’
I hope it’s quite a long time
Before I have to say goodbye.
