Our Love Story PART 1

My granddaughters asked me one day
"Grammy, how did you date
Going to an all girl school
Wasn't it pretty hard for you?"

They were at that dating age
And figured they could trap me

I just told them with a smile 
I knew were I was going all the while 

I stayed in school
And got my teaching job
Near the H bar T spread
On Nebraska sod

The land lady invited the cowboy
From up the valley one eve
To come down for a little supper
And meet the new lady who was going to teach

We spent the evening playing double solitaire
An when he got ready to leave
I asked him, " Please
Can you put my saddle in the barn for me?"

Sunday found me busy at work
Getting ready for school to start

He stopped by and wanted to know
If to the roping club with him I'd go

I did go and from that day on
Wednesday night, Friday night, Saturday 
And Sunday's were our days, 
Work permitting.

He had been on his own since he was fifteen
And took special pride in his work
Sometimes in the evening if he had the time
 You just might find us on the phone line

Thanksgiving rolled around
And I went to Kansas to see my folks
And he went Wyoming to look at a ranch

On the way back he stopped by my place
I walked him to the car when he was ready to leave
And I told him, "I'm going to a wedding
On June Nineteenth."

He just looks at me and says 
"If I'm supposed to be there just let me know"

I did 
He did come
And we were forty seven years and two weeks
As one

When I got finished telling the granddaughters
Their mouths were open in shock

Grammy did you really do that
I said Yep
An that's how you 
Came about.

I told Billy about the girls and me
And he replied with a grin
"You know you're right
I never did ask you to marry me."

When Billy looks down on me from above
I kiss my wedding band with love
For on our wedding bands you'll find
The stars and the moon for all time
