    His skin cold black
    Glistening in the afternoon sun
    Moving with his pride and joy
    Having so much fun

    Proudly he walks
    A true Black Man
    Walking with his jet black son
    Holding his little hand

    Not a care in the world
    Safe and secure
    Cute as he can be
    Walking with his Dad
    This Prince of three

    The present and the future
    Together
    Just how it should be
    Unspoken love and adoration
    Seen in the boy's eyes
    I recieve a nod of "That's my boy"
    I nod back
    I recognize

    Their blackness overpowering
    They are the sons of many sons
    Touched by God centuries ago
    Chosen to be the color of night
    A black man with his black son
    Yes indeed
    A most beautiful sight

    I can...

    ...see it all, too.
    It's amazing the
    way you captured
    this wonderful sight
    through verse.
    I love it...:)
