You were passionate and serene
And breathed notes that made lovers swoon.
You were classy, sophisticated, stylish
And gave pride to every woman of colour.
You were attractive, talented, ambitious
And made us dream your dream.
You were creative, compassionate, sensitive
Friendly, but sought the company
That robbed you of your worth and security.
Why so gullible when you belonged to the gods
When you should’ve been happy and satisfied?
