A poem written in memory of my former boss's husband, Reverend James Turner.



A cowboy rides in Heaven
Roped by Our Father’s hand
To dwell amid the angels
Within the Promised Land
His hat is now a halo
His boots now touch the clouds
His wit and friendly musings
Now charm angelic crowds

He basks amid the sunlight
Fading into the West
His spirit lies within us –
The lives on earth he blessed
We’ll hold each gentle memory
In our hearts, evermore
Until our Texas cowboy
Greets us at Heaven’s Door

A cowboy rides with Jesus
Our Father called him Home
To rest within His Kingdom –
A wondrous place to roam
We will always remember
With the highest of acclaim
The strength, love and compassion
Of God’s angel, Cowboy James

The saddle of time awaits us all, writing the journey are the stories we all tell and this one was a beautifully penned one!

Hugs my friend!

Jill, although death can be a sad thing, you have made it pointly okay to be dead in this poem. If that makes any sense. I am sure those who loved Cowboy James were not comforted so easily, but I find the thought of this journey told in such a positive and rythmic way very heartening. This was a treat to read. Be well, Kathy

I know why you write so well. You're a southern Ohio hillbilly, and they are brilliant when given half a chance. Your words are heartfelt and comforting. Thanks.

Jill! Welcome back; you have been missed!! GREAT to see you here again! And great to be reading your wonderful poetry; I've missed them!! And you! Well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Burleson, Karen Lynn. :D
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 7/26/2012
Good to see you back writing poetry, even if it is a somber send off of one of Texas's own. I've been going to too many funerals lately. One was an officemate and Reverad who became a bishop recently before he died–left quite a legacy.

A fine tribute and gift well-shared through your verses, Jill. Love, peace, and blessings,

Reviewed by Keith Rowley 7/24/2012
Written in the true American tradition. Although a eulogy, this made me smile and I'm sure Minister Turner had a rollicking good laugh of appreciation too. Great flow adds to the humor and spirit of this one.
