in ceylon

he was tamil
she was sinhalese

they had a son
he was eight

the war broke
ethnic conflict arose

their house was ransacked
looted, burned and destroyed
they became homeless
soon becoming refugees

they left for england
to recuperate
but they soon returned
back to their homeland

forgetting the pain and loss
forgiving their people and populace.
