You’re My Man And You Are Black!

together

That voice of yours, so deep,
the walk you have is so you.
You’re my man and you are Black
and I give to you, your due.

That skin of yours, so dark.
Those lips of yours, so perfect.
You’re my man and you are Black
and I give to you, my respect.

Those eyes of yours, so brown.
Those teeth of yours, so white.
You’re my man and you are Black
and you look good enough to bite.

That back of yours, so muscular,
those shoulders of yours, so strong.
You’re my man and you are Black
and together, we can’t go wrong!

Don’t think this is all about sex,
Look in my eyes and know the truth.
You’re my man and you are Black
and together, we must raise our youth.

The heat from your body
must never grow cold to my touch.
You’re my man and you are Black
and you must know, I love you so much!

I send this one out to ALL my strong Black brothers! I want you to know that I love you ALL! There are none in this world like you and though they try and emasculate you, not all of you will buy into the bullshit and for those of you that stay true to who you are, this one’s for you. I love you!

She’s A Nubian Queen!

Black is beautiful

Sun-kissed lady with the ebony skin,
so lovely on the outside as well as within.

She has high cheek bones in an oval face,
she walks with dignity and so much grace.

Perfectly beautiful just as she is,
loves her man and knows she’s his.

She’s a Nubian queen, an African bride,
and her smooth, Black skin; she will not hide.

She’s scorned the world over and she does not care.
She loves her Black skin and her curly Black hair.

She’s a model of beauty and a painter’s delight.
Her laughter is contagious, teeth gleaming so white.

She was centuries in the making and well worth the wait.
And she took her time to find the perfect mate.

He’ll treasure her love and her ebony skin,
and appreciate her beauty, both without and within.
