The untold secret

On the day when I took your arms,

this giant rock looked over the village;

on the day you left me for a different city,

this giant rock looked at me in sly.

The blue calm water beautifies the white lotus;

the time wails; the curlew moans;

the untold secrets overflow the heart,

and my heart still feels fragrance of remembrance.

(October 18, 2016 – Translation to Maestro W. D. Amaradewa’s song “Oba ma samaga…”)
