Dilantha Gunawardana


Leap with your eyes stitched blind
State your claim to the heart's find
Lavish the love in selfless gratuity
Tap your courage, transcend all frailty

Courage drips to the warmth of fear
Courage burns to percolate the tear
Courage fragments to the coward within
As you search for you metal, underneath the skin

Where steel is the soul and rock her rampart
When love is the miracle and courage her start
Your heart, a perennial seeker and your soul, an earnest keeper
As love bares her soul, to the courage that rests deeper

And as journeys are mounted on the saddle of earth
When courage blazes the flame of an unflickering hearth
As the footsteps stall to open a treasure concealed in a trove
Courage plants her seed, to sprout a sapling of love
