TSUNAMI YOU HIT MY ISLAND HOME<br />by<br />Thrishana Pothupitiya<br />The day was clear<br />The sun shone bright<br />Upon my island home<br />When all at once wailing, echoed from her shores.<br />And it came whirling, swirling, churning and sweeping<br />A monstrous twenty-foot wave<br />With a booming voice and mighty hurt<br />Destroying everything in its way.<br />For hours the waves swept in<br />Devastating her shores<br />Countless people lost their lives<br />From countless faces hot tears poured.<br />It came so fast in swirling rage<br />No time to think, to save themselves<br />The waves so high swept above their heads<br />And swept back with their lives.<br />Father and mother grieving<br />For their loving children lost.<br />Little children searching everywhere,<br />Searching for their parents lost.<br />A grieving father stands by the sea<br />His dead son in his arms<br />His agony spread throughout the land<br />And touched every man’s heart.<br />The waves destroyed many homes,<br />It swept off many lives.<br />But through this pain and sorrow<br />Our people began to rise.<br />The waves shattered Sri Lanka<br />Yet humanity it could not break.<br />Compassion, love and kindness reached out to all,<br /> And gave hope in every way.<br />
