True Love Burns Clean

by Malcolm Ali


        I canít claim that I love her

    and then leave wounds and scars on her,

       Like black eyes, bad credit and such.

    I want my love to have a positive effect,

                A healing touch.

I canít claim that I have an undying love for her

       and then turn around and beat her,

         Cheat on her and treat her mean.

 I want my love to have a positive effect on her,

          I want my love to burn clean.

         I want to help, not hinder her,

          As she accomplishes her dream.

          I want my love to burn clean.

       I want to protect and encourage her,

         Because she is my African Queen.

           I want my love to burn clean.
