Cowboy

He brought with him
in the fall sixteen mare
He was no longer a
whisper in the wind
and so much more
than a warm body
at the dinner table
She had married
another in his absence
and she knew all along
it was a foolish foolish
mistake and we all knew
she was a fool indeed
It took him a decade to
blow off his steam, the
wild one that he is
Twelve years later and
she still wonders where
his wheelchair might take
him, and when.
The ex husband has long
rotted and her children
were never loved
But the cowboy
the cowboy has
her heart.
