Thinking she would whizz
her way through Texas
like a hurricane hitting hard
Charming any cowboy she wished
leaving them cowboys wishing
Two stepping through Amarillo
Down to Dallas for the bull ride
Finding a bull that caught her eye
Realized she couldn’t make it to Austin
Her hand she had given away
To the bull man
17 teen years now
Texas still has her hand

What a wonderful poem! A Texan stole my heart and has kept it safely secure for 46 years. We are blessed!
Thank you 💞. A Texan stole mine 9 years ago and has kept it safely since then 🙏. Oh these cowboys 😁
A California Girl became a Transplanted Texan. My family roots seem to be in Texas. A California Girl I am once again, yet indeed, Texas has a piece of my heart.

Of all the places for a girl from Uganda to find her heart’s desire.
Hahahaha. Yes this cowboy stalked me all the way from New Mexico while I was attending New Mexico State and then dragged to Texas as soon as He could. I was living at his uncle’s house at a time. Talked me into an iceream cone and the rest is history 😁
God works in mysterious ways indeed.
He does indeed.
