She gazes at me with a grin,
Her white teeth attracts my smile,
The she asks a soft voice,
” How was your day my love?”
She brings her milk in a calabash,
Drink it for my love,
And forget your agonies.
She runs into the hut,
Has no time to waste on stories,
But quickly draws water for me to shower,
“I know you are tired my love, take shower and relax. The day was tough for you”
In love i accept not to disapoint .
O my African darling.
She is busy with house chores,
From a distance i hear her softly sing ,
Soothing our baby to sleep,
But her hands are restlessly working ,
Preparing mats for the market,
o my African darling.
Has stories to tell me,
That her granny taught her,
To love with commitment,
To care for her people,
She amazes me with love,
I will do everything to please her,
My African darling.
