We Swim Together

– Thanksgiving to a friend from past, back in present, walking to future. Tharaka Sam Perera, Nalanda Vidyalaya, Colombo, Sri Lanka. I hope he will forgive me for stealing a picture from Facebook –


We swam together
In St. Joseph’s Swimming Pool
I was the first to be sent to the deep end to swim back to shallow end
But you climbed the highest diving board
While I was in the second board in fear!

Little did we know about the swim in the river of Life
I’m so glad we have met again,
In the deep end of the river of life
Fearless of the depth, happily swimming
Until such day there is no more

P.S: Thank you for waking me up at bloody 4 in the morning. The chat made me happy. May you and your family be well and at peace.
