Ebony And Ivory - Poem by Melvina Germain

So I share these words with you
a dashing man with eyes so blue.
That thick white hair I do desire
you truly set my soul on fire.

You know I don't care what others think
I'll smile, laugh, yes I'm tickled pink.
Let them cry a river with shock filled stares
we're walking proud among the glares.

Ebony and Ivory, O how sweet the song,
hold my hand, you gallant prince
I'm so glad you've come along.

We'll swing our arms as we walk the town
and laugh so loud and free.
Perhaps observers will stand in awe
wishing they were like you and me.

Sweet, sweet love, you paint my heart
no jealousy nor hatred shall tear us apart.
Heart prints we'll leave along the way,
sharing our love day by day.
