The Size Of Texas

The Size Of Texas

A Poem by Frances L. Phillips

For a


You move me,

Cause me to sway

Like a bluebonnet

Sways in a gentle breeze.


You are my sunshine,

Providing the feul

That causes the petals

Of this yellow rose to unferal.


You are my foundation,

Holding me up

Like the mighty Alamo

That stands so strong under attack.


You are my cowboy,

The only man I want

To ride off the prairie

And into the sunset with.


You are My love,

The only man that has

Caused my heart to fill

And grow with love the size of Texas.
