Childhood memories

Childhood memories


Childhood memories


A single image remains
And survives all my misfortunes
The image of an African woman
Who was like a queen to me

A single word was able to escape
The black meanders of the past
Its vibrates still echo today
And reason just like Love

From these dreams bruised and broken
The single happiness that survived
Is the delightful memory

Of instants full of pleasure
Where I used to display on her black skin
A cream with the fragrances of hope
