A Girl and Her Horse

Somewhere behind the athlete you've become;
The coaches who pushed you,
The people who believed in you,
The long hours of schooling,
The dirt beneath your nails,
The falls you've taken,
The ribbons you didn't win,
The tears you've cried,
And the horses you've given your heart to,
Is the little girl who fell in love with a horse,
And never looked back.
