what an uncertain thing
It’s unpredictable
and unrecoverable….
sometimes unbelievable
A happy moment
suddenly can end as a tragedy
Several years planning
can be destroyed in a minute
Life is a kind of mirage
Which shows us illusions
While hiding the reality

So we are all be deceived

Iroshini (1st June 2018)

Poor health
Life is not an easy thing to cope
With poor health and mental strength
Feeling tired and slightly restless
Not being able to manage work

Thoughts and mind in a secret war
Making the heart beat rapidly grow
Forgetting all these complicated stuff
Want to fly away to relax my mind
-Iroshini (2018 May)

You are gone forever

A Sunday in January long years ago

You quietly came and sat beside me
Passing several benches
In my Sunday school class

A tide long hair with a proud smile
Anxious face due to the curious mind
Sharp tongue and the brightening eye
Caused for bonding two perpetual friends

Even you were a short-tempered girl
Very easily getting angry with all
But your heart was filled with full of love
Which you never knew how to reveal

We grew together as best friends forever
Even our life paths were totally dissimilar
We shared every happiness and sadness
Whenever we had the time and occasions

I couldn’t show my tears and grief
When you were suffering from full of pain
You held my hand and begging for relief
In my heart, those days still remain

Everybody said you are no more
Should I believe or not believe
I only saw a sealed brown coffin
With your name pasted on it

My heart never believes that
Never thought of it, but
You are gone and gone forever
Without saying goodbye to me

Iroshini (2017 March)

Birds without wings

The group of seven including me
Made the days in my university life
Thoughtful friendliness with lots care
Still gets my hearts’ full of share

The single bench at the corner of the ground
Help us to resolve the troubles we had
Finding and proposing great odd solutions
Which none of us couldn’t ever implement

The benches around huge Nuga tree
Were much comfortable for endless chatting
Giggling gossiping counselling and consoling
Sometimes caused us forgetting the timetable

Everything has gone to past and past
It will never give again such a precious moment
Making Life much easier, lighter and happier
With less burden and responsibilities

We lived like birds who flying here and there
Even without huge wings and light feathers
I missed all those days and the camaraderie
Which I always had from my wonderful friends
