SHE JUST DID

written by: Grant Guy

 

He worked Old Man Cassels ranch
He knew more about sheep than any man in the panhandle
Other than that he was not worth more than a plug of tobacca
His wife never knew why she loved him
He was no Douglas Fairbanks

She knew other men before him 
And most were far better 
     at the art of lovemaking
     at the art of sex

He never drank much
Never talked loud

It might be because of the way his eyes smiled 
When he looked at her
It might have been the way he held her hand
Sitting on the front porch watching the sun go down

It might have been the way he loved her unconditionally
                        He never took away her freedom
                        She didn’t know why she loved him

                        She just did
