With your equestrian humor
and inquisitive mind,
you were smart enough
to make me hear and touch

the scent with which you
embrace and lure inside me,
to make our souls siblings,
joining our peoples in our hearts.

Full of our histories’ trail of tears,
cultures, dances, and joy,
your untamed will has shown
my hope for things to come.

Grin and make your eyes look bright.
Taste each drop of the sweet
honey that will give you life,
and watch the stars give you
a kiss in the night.

So many times, in you, my soul
finds laughter and rest.
Feel my spirit’s embrace.
Make me feel your smile one more day.
