    For all black men who ask me why are you .....!!!

    I need a black man like I need a women’s touch
    Like roses laced with sweet songs of pitter patter down long
    San Francisco hallways

    I need a black man like I need a women’s touch
    Blue-Black, thick all confused and tied up
    Shut lip, over hang in the hip
    98th street style with a brief case

    I need a black man like I need a woman’s touch
    Soft lips on fingertips of oppression
    Dip in grandma’s special recipe of love
    Like a tax-return on the day before you file

    I need a black man like I need a women touch
    Knitting together flying shadow of slave stories
    Drums rhythm in my footstep kissed in my nearly
    Grown women’s places
    The palm of my hand

    I need a black man like I need a women’s touch
    In the place of what mother wants and what my lioness yearns for
    In the place of little girl diaries and with secret locks
    In the place where the heart meets that pillow and we grow
    I need a black man like I need a women’s touch

    Not with sex laced ears of lust I want a black man of intelligent status
    Respectable nature
    Friendly disposition
    I need a black man to re-create the black family.

    I need a black man like I need a women’s touch
    With no preconceive notions or unfilled fan-tah-seas
    Across ocean and pacific times space

    I need a black man like I need a women’s touch
    Like a holy revival
    Sistah Gretchen done got the Holy Spirit I need a black man
    Like I crave for a women touch

    I need balance
    Inner peace
    Spiritual journey
    Discovery
    I need a women’s touch
    Like the changing of time
