AFRICAN DAUGHTER

He brought you home
His african daughter.
Your ebony loveliness
Dazzled like your smile.
Teeth blazing pearls.
Constant laughter.
No blood tie.
Adopted for your beauty
And fine intellect.
Protected by your faith.
Called me ‘English mother
At our first meeting.
Cool at first,
I stiffened in your hug.
Then moved by your wish to please
I melted in the friendship
And wanted to adopt you.
Soon I found family
Means commitments.
Unable to make them,
I let you go.
