This collection of poetry was absolutely lovely. Beautiful words meant for (I’m sure) a beautiful person. I really enjoyed the poems in Sincerely. The illustrations in between were also very lovely. Overall, I think what was written here was very simple and wonderfuly put. Looking forward to reading more from F.S. Yousaf.

Take me to the places
Which i have never seen
And tell me the stories
Of their past
Teach me the many ways to live,
More so than i have ever known

It could just make me love the details of the girl he was talking about in the entire book without even knowing her

Masha Allah Farhan. Very well written. The beautiful flow of words and emotions. And even the illustrations are apt. This book truly captures how much you love and adore your wife. Let's the reader have glimpses of your journey with her. Looking forward to reading more brilliant works from you in the future. insha'Allah. God bless you both.

Though these poems were beautiful and well written- I found it hard to relate. I felt like they were too specific to be interesting to others. I will still buy and read his other book.

***** Mighty Mite *****

In this unputdownable book “Sincerely”, the author – Farhan Yousaf – depicts his long and enduring love. Since being earnest is way more important for a “real world” love poem, the writer sweeps his audience off his feet with his intentions rather than literary conventions. There is also acknowledgement of an inner spiritual core, where pure thoughts and emotions lie. Not only does this great little love poem show that true love is feasible, but also makes you feel things

In this collection of poems and love notes, F.S. Yousaf shines a light on an all encompassing love some of us could only dream of and pray for. He opens up about mental illness and how that put a hold on real romance in his life. The love he and his wife have for each other is tangible and is a beacon of hope for the rest of us dealing with our own demons. I wish them many more years of happiness and fulfillment.

A beautiful love story written in poetry by and for a lovely person. Romantic, thoughtful, and heartfelt, there is a sincerity in F.S. Yousaf’s words that sits in your heart, from beginning to end. If you have a hard time finding love poems to write for your significant other, this is the place to look (with credit of course!). Lovely read. Hope to see more from this author soon.

Lovely and honest. I expected a little more content, however I think there’s more to be discovered in the written lines. I will re-read when I get the hard copy and most likely do so more than once. The poetry is very relatable, it expresses something we’re all longing for.

Remarkably beautiful

Many of these poems describe my current relationship. I've also love poetry and to be able to send these to my love and express my feelings through these pieces of extraordinary words makes him happy and makes view love like I never had before.

I like it

I was reading page by page and suddenly i was at the last page. To me, it is simply written but has deep meaning for each poetry the author wrote.

I probably going to read his other book too.

This author writes about the purest form of love for his significant other in such a beautiful manner. You can feel the emotion spilling from each page(very Sincerely, so to say) also very creative to propose with a poetry book.
Mar 16, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Again, this one was so beautiful. I liked how positive this was and how love can truly turns things around and help you grow. I liked also that it mentioned the good and bad times, life isn’t perfect and this book didn’t try to make anything that way. It felt extremely real.

'Sincerely,' grabs you by the soul. F.S Yousaf expresses a range of emotion that is highly relatable but unmistakably his own. There are many different themes woven into this book--faith, inner-conflict, love--all of which lead back to the author's unique way of navigating through the rough terrain of this world. The reader leaves this book feeling heard. I am so grateful he has shared himself so honestly in these pages. I can't wait to see what he publishes next.

Great work

I love reading about him being in love; That's what it dwindles down to. I hope that this poet receives more recognition and keeps going at his work. He is incredibly talented and I am in love with his prose.

An incredible poetry book that describes his love to his wife and came out while I was falling in love with my now-husband and that we gifted to each other. A very important memory dear to my heart. Beautifully written.

A really nice poetry collection overall! The theme was strong and the vibe was really soft and comforting. No one poem really stood out or was particularly memorable, but it was a good read on the whole.

Sincerely is filled with so many beautiful poems. I am not the biggest fan of poetry, but I absolutely loved this - 5/5 Stars, take a few minutes out of your day to read this.

MUST Read!!

I would definitely recommend this short but very sweet, heart felt, and creative compilation of poems. This book let me in on an eloquent writer’s thoughts and love for the girl of his dreams. It was honest, funny, charming, and addictive that I finished it in a day. I follow him on Instagram as well and his poetry is something I look forward to reading daily.

I just finished reading the book, and it was heartwarming, and the presence of true love throughout every single poem in the book will give hope to anyone who is out there looking for love. Overall It was lovely, and the author has a beautiful way with words. 100% recommend.
