Valentine's in India



Since I arrived in India,
I've felt love everywhere,
In unexpected places,
Folks show me that they care.

I may not get a valentine,
Or roses smelling sweet,
But there are many other things,
That make me feel complete.

Old friends made me feel welcome,
New friends have come along,
All are special people,
Who make me feel that I belong.

Who knows what Valentine's might bring,
If I get shot by Cupid's dart,
I might meet a special someone,
From whom I'll never want to part!

But if that doesn't happen, 
I'm happy on this day,
My dream was to be in India,
Just wish I had a longer stay!

    1. Yes, Zephyr, I really do love India...even more so now that I have gotten to spend two months here. I am sad, beyond belief, that I now have less than two months left here.
