Never Let Her Go



Soaked in blood,
Her white cloak remains.
Not even a million drops of water
Will wash the stains away.
Masked by pain and tears,
Someone mourns.

A bright, burning flame
Snuffed out in an instant.
The lively sound of a heartbeat,
Silenced by death.

A deed so wrongly misjudged,
The price paid so high –
The pain too hard to fathom,
A rain of tears crashing down,
A mother loses her child.

The strength fading away,
The happiness for ever lost,
The joy in life no more,
The eerie silence that lingers,
A father mourns his little girl.

Sadness choking their thoughts,
That empty space at the dining table,
Where secrets, wishes, hopes and dreams
Can never be shared,
They weep for their sister.

Never forget her endurance,
Never doubt her bravery.
Embrace her fighting spirit,
Cherish her afterglow;
Remember her name
In every waking moment,
And never let her go.
And never let her go.

– Ayodhya Bandara Perera

You are not mine - Sinhala love poem

– Malshika Navodani


I was feeling so lonely,
But then one day I met you!
We roamed, in every dark road, with our hands tied together
You gave me many unforgettable memories,
But then you left…
I wish that my dream, which only belongs to you, will be written in your sky
And I wish that there comes a time you will only look for my eyes again…

Words Do Hurt

Words are of no use
When even feelings are obscure
Going through darkness marks by scars
Just as permanent markers
Forever engraving on our skin and in our mind the followed path
Emerging unscathed is too good to be true
Bad experiences are instructive they say
At a point they destroy us
As time passes by
Until nothing matters anymore…

Words Do Hurt


The Distance

Sometimes I just wonder why

Why is it that the only person who truly care about me appears to be across the world

Why is it that you don’t get to see what you truly mean to me

Words just don’t seem to express nothing much

Maybe that’s why it’s so hard writing feelings down

I’ve learned it the hard way, but eventually I found a purpose to live

You give me a reason to wake up every morning,

A reason to expect something of my life…


Living apart isn’t easy, it will never be

But you make it worth it

You give me all I need and so much more

There’s nothing I can and there’s nothing I will ask more

Every day I think about what to tell you

Words just never seem to be strong enough

Nothing can describe the feeling of knowing that you always have someone by your side

When nobody is to be seen…

The Distance - Love Poem - Sri Lanka Poems




Your love spread to every nook and corner of my heart

Then, our love grew in leaps and bounds

“Where do you keep this much of love?”

I asked you one day,

You just smiled

But that smile said a lot


I’m proud about you, me and our love

My heart is beating,

Only for you…

My smile is always,

Searching for you

So, I’m eagerly waiting for

The greatest and the happiest moment

Can you imagine?

The auspicious time, blessings

Greetings, smile and so on…

How wonderful!


Everything of mine is

Waiting for you…

One day our story will also be written as

“They lived happily ever after!”



The melody that we sang together

One lovely evening in the beautiful past

You and I

That sweet melody….


Everything has taken a change

I hear that same melody

Where she lulls her baby to slumber

With sadness I listen

To the strains of that beautiful song

Which I hear in the hazy distance

When the moon rises high

In a distant sky

The flowers still bloom on the way-side

Spreading sweet fragrance around

Thoughts of you entice me

When I was by you

The only happiness I recall

And is lost in a

A hundred thoughts


– Patricia Mangalika Yahampath

My heart is beating

For you….

My eyes are opening to

See you….

My tears are falling

For you….

My Smile is searching for

You always….

My darling….

Everything of mine is

Waiting for you….
