Been awhile since I posted a poem here. Here's my Christmas 2013 poem:

“Good and Ready”

The old rancher stood on his front porch and looked out across the pasture to the mountains beyond his land.
He wondered how much time he had left ‘fore the Lord would call him home and what that’d be like for a simple, cowboyin’ man.
He thought to himself,” I wonder if there’s fences to build or cows to tend to or any green grass at all…
‘cause that’s all I know’d since I was a button and no more than a couple a feet tall.
“And it would seem such a shame to never have rain or to watch the clouds roll in from the southwest.
But, I guess that ain’t for me to say and I know I can’t stay, so I’ll just trust the Lord with the rest.
Now, he read the book of Revelations and much to his elation, he read where the Lord was comin’ back for us on a horse.
So, he rubbed his scratchy chin and started to grin and thought out loud, “Well that makes a lotta sense, of course.
‘Cause there’s no nobler beast God put on this earth than that four legged runnin’ machine. That blows smoke from its nostrils on a cool, misty morning and drinks from the clear mountain springs.”
“I wonder if He’ll let me saddle ‘em up or maybe round pen ‘em for a spell ‘fore he rides. Or maybe…just maybe…He’s got another saddle pony I could "borrie" and take a spot right there by His side!”
“Now, that’d shore be heaven to me” he thought. “Ridin’ across the blue sky. And all I gotta do to have all that fun is finish up my work here…then die”.
Well, he wasn’t too fond of that last part. ‘Cause after all, his life hadn’t been that bad. Livin’ in God’s creation and all the adventures he’d had.
And Christmas was just around the corner and he knew the kids would be comin’ to stay. So he sent up a little prayer to heaven and summed it all up in this way.
“Lord, I’m ready when you are, but I’m fine down here where I am. Each day is gettin’ a little tougher, but I’m doin’ the best that I can".
“Now I know you’re birthday’s a comin’ up and what a celebration there’s gonna be. There’ll be kids a laughin’ and playin’ and food and lotsa presents under the tree".
"But with all that good livin’, Lord, let us give you the thanks for all that you have given. Especially for takin’ the cross for our sins, so all of us can be forgiven".
"So leave me here as long as you will, Lord and I’ll keep takin’ it slow and steady".
"I just want a chance to ride heaven’s trails with Ya, but only when You’re good and ready”.
R. Atkinson

Thinkin' would be a good lesson for my T3C3
church group.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Stargazer. You certainly may use it. I recited it last Sunday at the Cowboy church I attend.

Dear Texaslawman,

I love your 2013 Christmas poem. Since you don't mind me sharing it, I certainly will.

new song.
There was fresh snow this morning, there are tracks down the lane
She held me close to say good bye, now she’s driving away
She told me one evening, she hopes she won’t break my heart
If I thought she could stay gone, this would be a good start

We shared laughter and dancing in my living room,
We shared sweet, sweet romancing and talking till two
The fire place glowed like the flame in our hearts
There’s not a thing in this world that will keep us apart

I’ll be seeing you soon love though you’re driving away
Well be dancing together, it will be a sweet day
You can go anywhere and you won’t break my heart
There’s a life that we could have, It’s one that we should have
Hold onto our dream and it will seem we’re not really apart

Repeat verse two

Texas attitude

(Another Texas Veteran sent me this, I enjoyed it.)

One day, a very gentle Texas lady was driving across a high bridge in Austin. As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixin’ to jump. ("fixin to" in Texas means getting ready to)

She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, "Please don't jump! Think of your dear mother and father."

He replied, "My mom and dad are both dead; I'm going to jump."

She said, "Well, think of your sweet wife and precious children."

He replied, "I'm not married, and I don't have any kids."

She said, "Well, then you just remember the Alamo."

He replied, ''What's the Alamo?''

She replied, ‘’Well, bless your heart! - You just go ahead and jump.... you little Yankee Democrat Basterd.... You’re holding up traffic”
