Saint Valentine

What a role reversal!

See what Peace can do?

What the hell is war

Going to ever accomplish or do?

Love is the only answer.

Love is the only choice.

Whether you believe in it or not.

Is your own voice.

Love is universal.

Love is understanding,

in so many unexplainable

or unconventional ways.

Love is forgiving,

Love is faith.

To those incapable of love,

It is a tragedy, a travesty!

For those who can't love.

Those in love

can't explain it either...

Love is so unimaginable

Love is forever

Love can be stubborn

But love is also the glue.

The pure stitchery

of Humanity.

Oceans of Love

Love runs deep and strong


In my Sea of Love,

St. Valentine,

Deliverer of Love.

Oh, Valentine

Died for Love.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This poem is dedicated to my dear friend, colleague, and fellow Poet, Afzal Shauq. He has done so much for my writing, I can never repay his generosity, kindness, support, and understanding.
Afzal is refreshing. He is so unlike the selfish Americans in my country. Afzal is a Humanitian, he is an outstretched limb to a world. He voices hope, and encouragement.
Afzal makes this world a better place.
Happy Valentine's Day, Afzal. I hope you have a wonderful day.
Shana Valentine
