What is a cowboy’s valentine?
It may not be the prettiest card or the fanciest chocolate, but it comes from the heart and that’s what counts.
Valentine’s Day is a special occasion. But, let’s not get caught up in the flowers and the cards and the chocolate. Let’s stop and realize what this day is all about: The one you love. Here’s a little poem written by a cowboy about this special day. Share this poem with someone you love – and show them you love them no matter what!
A text version of the poem that may be easier to read can be found below.
A Cowboy’s Valentine
Don’t be disappointed if your cowboy valentine,
Shows up late
For your date
Without a rose, a card or wine
‘It’ll probably be a miracle that he is there at all
‘Cause a cowboy’s day’s
all work, no play
And honest, he can’t call
When there is no cell phone service, where he finds that missing cow.
Back in the brush,
And he’s in a rush
And she needs help right now.
She has just one leg showin’, and he knows he has a date.
But he hopes maybe
He can pull that baby
And not be to awfully late.
He ropes the cow, and pulls the calf, then sees his time is close.
No time to shop
No time to stop
To wash up and change his clothes.
Now he’s standing at your door with calf slop on his chaps,
His worn thin shirt
Covered with dirt
And he’s holding a paper scrap,
On which he’s penned a poem, scribbled with a pencil stubble
Some simple prose
That he thinks he knows
Might get him out of trouble
So don’t be aggravated, it’s just a cowboy’s way
To tell you true
Of his love for you
On Valentine’s Day.
