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.

Courage

Lord I Thank You
For the brothers & sisters
Who hold my hand
No matter the distance
For it is through
Their loving kindness
You send me courage
To go the distance

Happy March

Let me show you
the flowering tree
Beautiful
as this friendship
between you and me

We’re coming into
a season of joy
With time
to share everything
hopeful that we see
