Snowing In Durango Poem by Cowboy Ron Williams

Snowing In Durango

Rating: 5.0


It's snowing in Durango,
and my thoughts are turning back
to when I stepped into a store
just looking for a snack.

The snow was falling hard that day
and I was cold and blue.
The girl behind the counter smiled,
and somehow I just knew

that she and I were meant to be;
she was a living doll.
I'd given up on finding love,
but found it after all.

My hunger somehow disappeared,
forgotten by her charm.
We talked and talked, and through it all
I managed to get warm.

We married six weeks after that;
it lasted fifty years.
I buried her three years ago,
along with many tears.

As snow keeps falling here, I think
I truly have been blessed.
Of all the women in the world,
she was the very best.

I hear its words being sung by the fireplace by a lonely cowboy remembering better years and the woman he loved---beautiful words, my friend

I'd buy myself a yummy snack, swing the gal and then give her back. You can have her, be my guest. I wish you & her the very best. bri : )

Ron, as I see no 'rating-stars' in the PH sky (a not unusual occurence (sp?) these days, I will not be needing to wring my hands deciding how many to give to this love poem.
