I thought about you yesterday-
As I drove by the road-
That leads up to the shady plot
Where you make your abode.

I thought of how I met you-
At the Fairgrounds that July-
And how you looked so pretty
In white while passing by.

Your blue eyes and your golden locks
Quite took my breath, you see-
That innocent and sparkling smile
That you bestowed on me.

What joy and heartache lay ahead
We neither one could know-
You were a rancher's daughter-
I chased the rodeo.

I wooed you and I won you-
I even won your Dad-
I guess that I'll admit though
I gave it all I had.

We married in September-
I had to miss two shows-
And that is quite a sacrifice-
For one who rodeo's.

You told me then in April
When flowers are so gay-
"There's a little cowboy,
Or cowgirl on the way."

The summer passed so quickly
I rode well this is true;
But we began to worry
When the child was overdue.

My world just seemed to shatter-
I knew the news was bad-
The motel phone was ringing
The caller was your Dad.

He had to start a time or two-
His was a broken tone-
Said, "Son, I hate to tell you-
But our little girl is gone."

He told me of the bleeding-
They couldn't get to stop-
The wild drive to the Doctor
But they couldn't find the Doc.

And as your face grew paler-
Before the passing came-
You told him that you loved me-
Kept calling out my name....

The preacher at the funeral-
As preachers always do-
Said you were in a better place
I hope that that is true.

If I had known how brief our time
How soon that you would go-
I'd have been home with you my dear
And quit the rodeo.

But I'm still going down the road
My hair is getting grey-
I hate the place without you there-
I thought of you today.

Live large, people!

I am sitting here crying like a baby with this one, I only hope that these words are not spoken of real life and if they are, my heart goes out to you
