Letter 1

Hello, my dear !

How are you doing now?:) Thank you so much for your letter!!! I am glad you want to continue our correspondence because I want it too so much!! well what i meant is that my future husband ok am not married you did not understand me am single never married before no child

Honey, may I call you "honey" by the way?:) do you realize that life is too short to be unhappy or to be alone... I understand it even sharper now... I want to find my soul mate and I ask myself again and again: may be it is you??? What do you think about it, honey? May be we are meant to be together,to re write Shakespeare? Who knows...

Darling, how can I describe myself? It is very difficult:) In three words I am easy going, decent and very serious girl. But when I am in a good mood I am very funny and like to make people laughing:) And what about you? How will you describe yourself? Which three words will you use?

Honey, as for my family I live with my mom and brother. my mum is a teacher and works a lot
I have no father unfortunately:( It is a bad topic for me to talk about but I feel that I can trust you and can talk to you about anything!!! I have never seen my father he left my mom before I was born:( It is really sad that some men can be so dishonest. And my mom is afraid that a man will do the same thing to me one day... She worries about me so much!!! But I am sure that I will meet a decent man and my child will have a good father!!! I know what does to grow up without dad mean and I don't want my child to know it too:( I am sorry for these sad words but I want you to know everything about me. So I live together with my mom and brother.

Honey, tell me more about women in your country. I have heard that women abroad have nothing common with African women. They say they are not family oriented and the only things they are interested in is just their career and money. Is it true? If yes poor men abroad! I can't understand how a woman can not want to be a wife and a mother?? It is the first thing she was born for, are you agree with me, my dear? I feel that I was born specially for it...

I will be finishing my letter for today. Hope you liked what I told you:) Waiting for your answer!!!! Yours Samiratu.

Letter 2

Dear Rolf ,

I'm usually not the kind of person that would write a love letter, but I thought i'd do this for you because you are the most wonderful thing in my life right now. I know we're far apart -- you're In Germany, and I'm in Ghana -- but hey, like I said, distance means so little when you love someone so much. I was just talking to a friend about you and explaining how you are on my mind 24/7. I can't eat, sleep, walk, or even work without thinking about you. You are in my thoughts all the time. I'd tell you you're in my heart, but I don't feel like that would be right, because my heart is not mine anymore -- it belongs to you. You are sweet, loving, caring, beautiful, and you make me feel like one of the luckiest girl in the world. I need you to know i will be with you through everything, the bad and the good. I've given you my heart and I hope that you won't break it. Keep it and give it some loving from time to time. I promise you that I'd never let you down, I would share your joy and pain? I will promise all those things over and over again. Don't worry about what other people say, I know how I feel towards you, and you know how you feel towards me, so just ignore them. I Hope you enjoy this!

Thank you,What more can a woman say to the man who opened his heart to her, allowing her to feel the warmth of her love across the great distance that separates them? You truly have no idea what I feel for you.

I try to put this feeling into words, but fail miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having both butterflies and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have only dreamed about. As the days continue to pass, my love for you continues to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. Yet, my love for you continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence.

I have no other words to describe the way you make me feel. No words, no actions could even come close. I believe that Romeo said it best to Juliet's in a movie, telling her only that, "I more than love you". Their love was a strong love, surviving everything, even death. I believe that even after his passing, Juliet felt romeo s' love for his raining down upon him. That is why she has always seemed at peace after the death of such a truly loving husband. That is the love that I feel for you.and hopefully many more to come

Forever Yours,

Samiratu

ps this are all my pictures i have and i send them to you

Letter 3

Dear Rolf,

Where would I be if I had not met you? I'll tell you where; I would still be lonely looking for that special someone to make me smile again. We found each other at just the right time.

The distance that is between us is only going to make our love stronger and there is less of a chance that we will take each other for granted. I look forward to the day that we are together. The days that we are together, I am already looking forward to the time that I get to see your handsome face.
I love you with all of my heart and soul. Everything that I have been through in the past year has only prepared me for you. Your love is true and not to be taken lightly. The love that we will share is never-ending and very powerful. If I had met you earlier in my life I know I wouldn't appreciate you as much. I thank God every day I wake up that someone loves me like you do, it is a once in a lifetime thing!

I love you, and the way you make me feel, everyday. The great thing is I know you love me just as much!

Love always,

Your Girl.......Samiratu

Letter 4

Dear Rolf,

Do you know what it is like to look up into the velvet night sky, and yet not see the stars? Do you know what it is like to see the song birds sing their sweet music, and yet not hear their sound? Do you know what it is like to feel your heart inside you, and yet not feel it beat? Do you know what it is like to be in a crowd of people smiling, laughing, sharing their love together, and yet be all alone with no one around? Do you know what it is like when the light of your life has been extinguished, and you are left in absolute and complete darkness, frightened and alone? Do you know what it is like when the one you love so deeply and dearly is so far away? Your heart cries out their name and yet there is no reply.

All you want to do is hold them in your arms, and you cannot. All you desire to do is to kiss their sweet lips, and you cannot. You long to hear their soft sweet voice as they whisper words of love to you, and you cannot. You just want them near, and they are not.

Their absence brings with it frustration and sadness. You curse God that you cannot be with the one you love, and yet you thank him completely for bringing that person into your life, all the while knowing that no amount of dreams and hopes and prayers, can, at once, change the situation - the situation that is in the hands of the God that you curse.

So, what do you do in such times? How do you keep your wits about you? How do you maintain some semblance of normal life, when all you can do is think about is the person that you are so in love with and that you would do or give anything just to be with? You feel lost somewhere between the cruel reality of life, and the dream-like fairytale that you wish to live in, and the only salvation is to be found in the arms of your beloved and that cannot happen.

Friends cannot comfort your soul. Thoughts only make the pain in your heart worse. What do you do? You think about them - oh my God, how you think about them endlessly! You pray to God for the strength to see it through this situation, knowing that someday you will be with that person forever. But is that enough? No. Not always. Until you are in their arms, nothing really helps.

The mind is a whirlwind as your thoughts are tossed around like matchsticks in the wind. But the one thought that is all constant and eats away at the core of my soul is a simple one: "When will I hear from you again? Will I ever hear from you again?" Such silly thoughts are these. But time can cause such thoughts to occur. It is only human. I am only human.

And so, I wait. For how long? Only time and God can tell. And as I wait it seems as though the hands of the clock move in reverse instead of forward. Each second that passes seems as an eternity away from you. Time takes you further away from me instead of bringing you closer, and time is something that is beyond our control.

Oh to be an angel, and have wings that I may fly into your arms at this very second. To taste your sweet kiss and feel your warm embrace. To love you, to have the pain of needing you, vanish in your arms, as would snowflakes on a summer day. And to know that we would at last, be together for all our days. Days spent lost in sweet heavenly love, such as we have never known.

Oh God, my darling, how is it that love can be so wonderful, and yet hurt so badly? Such pleasure in knowing and feeling your love for me, and such mortal pain in being apart from the one that I love so deeply, so dearly, so passionately.

Darling there is an old saying that applies to being away from something. It goes, "Out of sight...out of mind." But, my love, every "old saying" has an opposite meaning. In this old saying it is also said, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," and just when I think it is not possible to be more in love with you, a second ticks off the clock, and I discover that I am more in love with you then ever before.

"Do I Love You"

Beyond the shadow of a doubt,
As the mighty river flows,
As the meadow gale plays,
With the wind on summer days.

About as deep as deep can go,
From the canyons to the sky,
Like a mother as she cares,
For the baby that she bears.

Do I love you? Don't you know by now?
Do I love you? Must I show you how?
Do I love you? Do I have to say?
Do I love you? Yes in every way.

About as sacred as a hymn,
And a bible full of prayers,
From a whisper to a roar,
Very much and even more.

Let me show it with my eyes,
And I'll share it with the night,
If in death the Lord is kind,
You'll be the last thing on my mind.

Do I love you? Don't you know by now?
Do I love you, Must I show you how?
Do I love you? Do I have to say?
Do I love you? Yes in every way.

Good night, my love. And never doubt that with each breath I take, I love you more. Rolf, I love you.

With all my love,

Your Sweet Samiratu

Letter 5

Dear Rolf,

Honey, you have changed my life completely. You're the one who makes me beautiful. You're the one who makes me strong. You're the one who makes me feel so important; you're everything to me.
You show your love to me every day. I thank God that I have found a man like you. Please forgive me for not giving you enough time to chat with me, but I promise I will make up for it once we are together.

All that I can offer you is a family my heart body and soul. I can offer you a family that will stick together through the good and the bad. I can offer you a family that will support each other every day. Honey, that's all I can give...I hope that?s what you want.

I really wish that you were near me. I wish that I could just call your name when I needed you and that you would be there. However, knowing that you love me so much is enough for now, and if I can be your wife and a mother to your children, then I would wait forever to be with you. Ti amo tesoro mio. You're the only one that I want.I know there's an ocean between us and I wish that it weren't true, for every day when I arise, I yearn to be with you.though a lot of distance lies between us ,you'll always be in my mind and my heart and every night beneath the stars, I pray for the day we'll never be part.

Every day I will be thinking about you. When my eyes are closed, when I sing and dance to a love song, when I'm checking my email, I will be thinking about you. When I go to sleep in the loneliness of my room and give in to wonderful dreams I will definitely be thinking about you.

I know someday we will meet and spend our lives with each other. I have waited for someone like you, and now that I have found you I will never let you go.. I love you so much


Love Always,

Samirat

Letter 6

Dear Rolf,

We are meant to be together for the rest of our lives, this we know. Each day that passes I am aware that it means that it is one day closer to being in your arms again. Each night is spent dreaming of your face and wishing you were next to me again. You are amongst death and danger, though I know you are being careful. I love you with more then just my heart, I love you with my entire being. Meeting you was fate, this distance is just an inconvenience.

I just want you to know that I am very fortunate and very lucky to have you in my life. You're the best thing that has ever happened to me. You made me very happy and you made my life complete.

The first time Iwill your in person will the best time in my life. You're the one who taught me how to love again. You gave so much happiness and so much love to my heart ... keep in mind always that whatever happens, "You're my one and only love." I love you with all my heart and soul.

Thank you, my love, for loving me and for giving me a chance to show you how much I love you and how much you mean the world to me. I know we're a thousand miles apart right now, but I'll be right here waiting for you, my love. I love you always and forever. my dear well for me to come to you then i will have to go and see the agent and will tell you tomorrow ok

Love always,

Samiratu
