A Poem From Marge

I have been so lucky to find a friend across the United States, who is so dear to me, she is truly a sister-by-choice. I love her so much, and yet I've never met her face to face. But we've had many happy, sad, and wonderful conversations. I can trust Marge with my words and feelings. The other day Marge sent me an email, and I loved it so much, I'm posting it here:

When I saw the beautiful image of you and Scamper on your blog,
I loved how happy you looked;
this is what your photo said to me
about your relationship with Scamper...

best of friends
for nancy and scamper by marge g-s

best of friends
that's what we are
me with two legs
you with four

i know you smile
not everyone sees
it takes special eyes
special hearts

not everyone feels
the energy i sense
in your hoof beats
when you lope and canter

your energy fills me
revives me when i'm low
your wise eyes follow me
they tell me "it's okay"

you are my friend
in remarklable ways
four-legged fool and sage
you complete me

you elevate me
vindicate the best in me
and remind me how good it is
to be friends

Thank you, Marge.
I love you.
