I, (Makayla's Mom), once had a friend I treasured dearly. She passed away when Makayla was only 5 days old. I used to board my horse with her and we loved to ride together. I know she would have loved Makayla. When she first passed away I used to say in my head "ride with the wind my friend". 10 years later Makayla asked me for an idea for a song. I told her these words and this is the song she came up with. It brings a tear to my eye every time I hear it.

Lyrics:
There is a story, Mama told me for years.
She speaks of an angel, as she holds back her tears.
She left us too early, and we'll never know why.
At night when it's quiet, I've heard Mama cry...

Ride with the wind, my dear old friend.
Ride with the wind, until we meet again.

A heart warm as sunshine, and a smile just as bright.
When others say the darkness, she always saw the light.
She loved my Mama, like she was her own,
They'd ride into sunset, over streams, grass and stones.

Ride with the wind, my dear old friend.
Ride with the wind, until we meet again.

Mama said she'd have loved me, if our paths had ever crossed,
but by the time that I had got here, her battle was lost.
I feel like I knew her, though I missed her by days.
God gives us an angel, when he takes one away.

Ride with the wind, my dear old friend.
Ride with the wind, until we meet again.

Ride with the wind, through fields of green.
Ride with the wind, and I'll see you in my dreams!
