Dark Brown Dad nuzzles his dark brown son into a life-long shelter of love and protection
Dad’s strong, brown arms wrap around his son’s shoulders; a broad brown hand rests over his boy’s heart.
Into his son’s soft curly afro, Dark Brown Dad whisper-kisses a secret message there, for keeps
Searching for a reflection of his future, dark brown boy’s long-lashed eyes beam at Dark Brown Dad and blink, “I love you, too.”
