I looked into her eyes for signs of hope.
She looks tired.

Until the end, I will feed you, nurture you, and help you to stand up. I know, when all four of your hooves are firmly planted on the ground beneath you, you are whole.
I hope that you can hear and see so many things that we, as humans, are not capable of sensing. I need for you to know that I love you.
Wisdom tells me that your body will give out. My heart tells me that if I keep on trying I can bring youth back to you.
I ask myself, why do I do this? But this isn’t about me, it is about the job that I know I am here to do.
Today’s heart is heavy. Tomorrow I will be looking for sunshine, and I will see it when you kick up your heels in glee. You may be jumping over a rainbow. But I will shed several tears for you wherever you go.
