Country Thoughts (Part 5)


Country Thoughts (Part 5)

The Cowboy is taken his heart lassoed
by his lady with poetry and song
He wooed her with his gentle ways his
cautious responding and sharing
and they discovered before too long
that what they'd both been doing
and both sensed from the start
was a mating dance - a ritual
to see into the other's heart

And so their love for each other
was declared beneath the western sun
Two lives began entwining
into the future now as one
You're mine all mine and I love you
I'll love you till the end of time
I really love those words....to have and to hold
Two hearts beating and fears retreating
with tears to kiss your lips that wash away your fears
Kisses to taste eternally
From heart to heart unending
Precious words and emotions
that write the poetry of our love
Like a symphony our words
and the songs of our hearts are blending
in perfect harmony
Casting a spell that will never be broken
We hear the music and can hardly believe the magic of it all
To awaken to your kisses
you are like the sun shining down on me
A flower responding to your touch
you fill me with love and energy
Our joy surrounds the air we breath to sustain us
Our spirits soar to the sky
like smoke from a smouldering fire
to twirl and dance and blend upwards
to dance amongst the stars

Country Thoughts (Part 4)




Will you be my cowgirl I'd really like to know
Cuz I've fallen for you and don't want you to go
Then you said yes you'd sure love to be
Let me give you some idea of what that reply did to me
Yaaaa hoooooo I hollered for the whole world to hear
and all I wanted to do was to hold you near

Today a brand new story is about to start
The words you said hit me straight in the heart
When I see your smile my whole world is brighter
Your radiance shines on me and makes my heart lighter
Since I heard the declaration of your love for me
Being with you is the only place to be

I love you my cowgirl from now until forever
and know that we will always be together

My Cowboy I want to thank you so much from my heart
for all the beautiful words you have given me today
Each and every one of them takes my breath away
You say you're floating on a cloud - I am too

There is only one thing to say
I love you - I love you with all my heart
your love is a miracle it brings tears to my eyes
tears of happiness that I cannot disguise

Country Thoughts (Part 3)


You glance at me with a grin on your face
from beneath the brim of your hat
My heart takes control and begins to race
when you look at me like that

I look into your eyes and there I see
remnants of a broken heart fading
into distant memories
and your question still waiting for me

Quietly you whisper my name
as your strong arms embrace me closely
Like a star in the night
you're returning the light back to me

Cowboy, I'd love to dance with you
and to sleep beside your fire
if that's what you want to do
then your wish is my desire

Country Thoughts (Part 2)

So now I know you while away your afternoon
What exactly is it you could teach me now
perhaps how to ride or even milk a cow
I could teach you that for sure
and if you're interested a whole lot more
How to sit in the saddle and how to tilt your hat
Now what do you think of that
I could teach you to enjoy things country style
Many things here to make you smile
Teach you to dance the way we country folk do
Might even take you to the rodeo too
I could take you camping to sleep under the stars
to hear the wolf howling and show you mars
I could teach you to fish and how to make a fire
then swim in the river your wish is my desire
I could hold you close whenever you're afraid
that's the main reason these two arms were made
Then I could kiss you if you would let me
and if you kiss me back - I'd love you so gently
Yes Ma'am I could teach you all that and more
if you would let me it wouldn't be a chore
I enjoy every minute that I can spend with you
So tell me city girl what's this cowboy to do

Country Thoughts

Quiet afternoon with a glass of JD
Only my thoughts keep me company
Been tying flies for fishing on the front porch
Sitting in the shade out of the midday scorch
There's a shallow stream flowing at the bottom of the garden
I kissed a girl there long ago and had to beg her pardon
It's a place to be quiet and just look and listen
There's so much going on you never know what you're missing
Sometimes I stay for hours beneath the shade of those trees
Hear the rustling of the leaves in the gentle breeze
The buzzing bee, a chirping bird, the trickling of the water
Spend time there sometimes much more than I ought to
Lazy afternoon sounds that are so soothing to me
If you take the time to look there is so much to see
Place so calm and peaceful gentle thoughts come to my mind
The mind goes round in circles and suddenly I find
Ever since we met I've been thinking of you
Ma'am I sure could teach you a thing or two
