Cowboy Epitaph

Farewell to a Dream Companion

It was here that I buried you,

on this high hill,

which you so longed for in life.

Here your spirit may look

to one side

upon the beautiful sea,

until it reaches the multi-colored

horizons of heaven.

To the other side,

at the foot of this hill,

Rests the small town that you loved;

where men were still cowboys,

walking with holsters on their hips

and six-shooters at their side.

It was here that we parted our ways,

my friend;

mine was to remain

in this sleepy town,

nestled at the foothills of humanity.

Yours was to tread the high ground,

overlooking eternity.
