Girl Who Loves Horses

So in school today, Rebekah wrote a poem about who she is, and I liked it so very much that I thought I'd post it here:
I AM

I am an imaginative girl who loves horses
I wonder what it's like to ride on clouds
I hear horses cryding out in pain and longing
I see a rider beating his horse and my heart cries out as if I'm the one being beaten
I want to win the horse show

I am an imaginative girl who loves horses
I pretend I am riding my horse over clouds
I feel her heart beating as quickly as she runs
I touch the sun
I worry that we'll go too high
I wish I could own a horse

I am an imaginative girl who loves horses
I understand her feelings
I say "We will never part"
I dream that our ride never ends
I try to speak her language
I hope she understands my feelings

I am an imaginative girl who loves horses
What a strange and beautiful thing to hear something from your daughter's lips that you didn't know what there, and to think "Wow. Where did THAT come from?" And then to wonder what else is there which you haven't yet discovered because you thought you already knew...
