Never she bemoans

Ahead,
river runs,
(you know where)
yet
never,
she laments.

Murmuring
with wind,
an admirer
so rare,
ever
river runs.

Ever,
we lament,
yet
never
we own
our own
grief.

But,
forever
we claim
it’s that
river
that ever
bemoans.
 


ගඟ අඩං නැත

ගඟ අඩන් නැත
ගළනවා මිස.

අඬන අපි
සුළඟ හා
මුමුණමින්
ගළන ගඟ
අඬන වග
පවසමින්,

දුක් කඳුළු
ගං දියට
මුසු කරමු.
