Georgia peaches

Georgia peaches

A Poem by Hester Grey

our georgia peaches 
kept us nourished in the heat
our gospel songs kept us 
the train kept moving 
fast along the tracks
and we found each other 
in a foreign land 

we never expected to fall in love 
to have our lives changed forever 
but those sweet georgia peaches 
opened wide our hearts 
and we became as one 

throughout those long 9 months
we were there for each other 
each one always ready to do 
and be for the other 
and when time came to say goodbye 
no one else has ever cried as much 
as we two did 

but forever in our souls and hearts 
our love lives on 
when we hear that soulful singing
or those sweet georgia peaches eat
