Precious Cargo – Hearts – Poem

My kids headed down to GA today to see their grandparents, cousins etc. I wrote this poem as I already miss them…

Precious Cargo – Hearts

Precious cargo, hearts intact
Head down south where pines blow in the breeze
Pollen makes you sneeze
And covers everything in a yellowy-green

Precious cargo, hearts in tow
Head down south where grandparents faces
Beam with expectant glow
Knowing, joy will soon be there

Precious cargo, hearts that scream
For life, love and wondrous things
Where aunts and cousins, guitars and dreams
Welcome the coming of spring

Precious cargo, my heart you hold
Your laughter and love never grow old
So here I’ll sit, with treasure trove
Thoughts of you, ‘til you get home
