The date Was marked In my heart And deep down I didn’t want to be alone But it was The kind of day With a lot to do And no-one to talk to So I let it go With a sigh Didn’t even Want to write And then I found A sweet surprise Words of hope Just for me From a friend Who didn’t know And I thought With a smile This, I’ve got to write.. There are no coincidences
When we have angels
Remembering Saumya (Sam) – the spirit of your love lives on, touching our hearts with friendship unlimited.
January 8, 2017 – Grand Oriental Hotel, Colombo, Sri Lanka
It was a dream come true to complete the dedication of Sparkle Forever and celebrate friendship with those who inspired many of the poems in the book. My deepest gratitude to my family for organizing this lovely presentation.
Thank you to all who attended. It was wonderful to see old friends and share my poetry with you. Special thanks to Lilanthi, Dulanie, Viranthi and their talented daughters for making the event a great success.
It was a joy to show my appreciation to the guests of honor – my Teachers! The grand finale was my father singing the Friendship Song he composed for the occasion.
DEDICATION: 25 year remembrance for my dear friend Saumya (Sam) Almeida who taught me and many others what Friendship Unlimited was all about.
