    Good morning!

    I am one of the young up & coming poet from South Africa, hence i want to comment on your poem titled.. I loved you.. It reminds me of my love, because i had difficult challenges when i was in love, but after i read it, i felt like i can express myself better than before & that is great for me as a young person. Keep up the good work Sir! you are an inspiration to the nation. Can i come & visit you this festive season? Because next year, i am invited to an Indian ceremony to recite my poems to an Indian audience... We need grandfathers like you, in order for us to be successful.

    Have a nice day!

    Yours in South Africa.
