We hope you enjoy this intimate look at a cowboy’s heart as much as we do. We have posted poems by our friend, cowboy poet Steve Lucas in the past. This is one of our new favorites (each one he shares with us is our new favorite, however).  Thanks for sharing your art with us, Steve!

A Cowboy’s Heart

A cowboy’s heart is tender,

Although he won’t want you to know it.

And he’ll go to great effort

To make sure that he’ll not show it.

He’ll contend cowboys are stoics,

With a hearts as hard as stone.

But in truth, they’re easily broken,

And they’ll go off to be alone,

If his advances are rejected

And he hurts deep down inside.

He won’t let you see it,

It’s called his cowboy pride.

But it won’t take long for his heart to heal

Hard work won’t let him brood.

He might come back, but he might not,

It all depends  upon his mood

So ladies, you had best be warned

As Valentine’s Day draws nigh

‘Bout trifling with a cowboy’s heart

It’s just  hello or goodbye.

Be honest with your feelings,

Love or “Just like” is fine.

When he comes askin’ you to be

His Cowboy Valentine.
