Funday Times - A Poem for the week

A tribute
(For International Elders’ Day)

By Ayodhya Perera, (14 years) Bishop’s College

Creases of love etched on your face,
As you tell me stories of the past,
Wrinkles of patience on your forehead,
How I long for those times to last…

The sound of your gentle voice,
Always consoled me when I was sad,
The monsters under my bed,
Disappeared when I held your hand…

Creases of love etched on your face,
As I tell you how lucky I am,
To be blessed with
grand parents,
As special as you,
And for being with me all,
Through the storms and

It is you I should thank…
