(19, April,1951 / kalubovila East, Sri Lanka)

A beggar maid sings in an awful night!


If you want to see the World
Though I am blind,
Ready to give my eyes.
If you're hungry
Share my bread crumb.
And if you're thirsty
Please sip my broken tumbler.
If you want a shelter and a warmth
I can move to a side on the road
And in the sleep if you want my heart,
Please remove that without giving me a slight pain
As I cannot bear this loneliness any further!

*to the young poetess in Massachusetts Shani Bogamuwa!
