You met all of life’s challenges

J. P. Pathirana

Your courage never failed
Like a soldier ready to fight
A dream you never realized
Meeting life's challenges
However tight.
Writing and preaching
What is right
Was your forte in life,
Father - was a graceful light
Your thoughts for the day
Over the air wave
Illuminated the hearts of many
Never a day was dull
When you were around
Metta, Karuna to all
Were the cardinal principles
You followed until the last.

By Dayal Nalaka Pathirana

J.P. Pathirana, a prolific writer and broadcaster, died soon after the tsunami two years ago
