Husband Poem

The Love Of A Cowboy

I have lived your average life being married, having two children, being divorced, and giving up on love. Then one day, I met an ol' cowboy, and my life will never be the same. I always heard people say, "Being a cowboy is a way of life!" However, it wasn't until meeting a real cowboy, listening to his stories, watching him live his life by a different set of morals than the rest of the world and falling in love, that I understood. One month from today I will become his wife. He is my inspiration.

An Ol' Cowboy


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2018 with permission of the Author.

His boots may be dusty
From sitting by the door,
And his saddle a little weathered;
It doesn't get oiled anymore.

His hat has become misshapen
From hanging on the wall,
And his lariat is a little stiff;
It isn't used much at all.

His hair has started graying
From "experience" he has said,
And his body a little sorer;
It's the COWBOY life he's led.

His words may seem harsh
From the truth that he speaks,
And his morals a little different;
It's a promise to himself that he keeps.

His heart a bit more cautious
From the hurt its felt and more.
And his love, if you should earn it. . .
It's a little better than any love
You have known before.
