i loved you the first time i searched your mountains
and felt your deepest plains: breathtakingly beautiful
you satisfied and complimented my spirit
as i whispered and repeatedly shouted your name
in love-laced incantations which pulsated like drums
and crested like the ocean where i sat and enjoyed
how you spoke to me in refreshing breaths
lulling and fanning me under palms
which shaded my ashed-over feet burrowed in sands
warm and limitless like my love for you
and your wonderful and ever-growing family

This poem is for you Sweetheart.
An Ode written for you from my heart
On Valentine Day, only for you.
With a well deserved thank you
To help brighten your day.
Sending lots of smiles your way
In a big big Red heart
To say I love you in a big way.
This Poem is for you Sweetheart
A Very Happy Valentine to you .
Wonderful poem and wonderful Valentine to Africa. It's so delightful to read Van G. Garrett on the One Ghana site.
Images and sentiments of Ghana are presented in a way that you feel the spirit of the land calling you. Wondeful poem that evokes my desire to return to Ghana!
