“He walked the line” haiku

Johnny Cash, Feb. 26, 1932 — Sept. 12, 2003

In the cotton fields
Pickin’ bolls, singing Gospel
J.R. Cash began

In the hospital
Ready to meet Jesus, June
Johnny Cash did end

Between, what a life
Did that man live, so much pain,
Hurt, love, redemption

God Bless Johnny Cash
Man in black with weathered voice
For all those held back
