48. Only My Dreams........Would Keep Me Alive

Toiling from dawn to dusk every day,
In this parched desert god forsaken,
Under the merciless sun overhead,
Shining in a blinding glare eternal,

Not even a wisp of wind in sight,
To cool off trickling sweat at least,
Suffering endlessly in this hell on earth,
Virtually a prison sans only walls around,

Solitary hope that keeps me going on,
Nightfall when leaving this misery at last,
Entering the dreamland of my own,
You would be there waiting for me,

Walking on flowery banks of rivers,
Flowing down from valleys of evergreen,
Holding my hand never letting go,
As if your life depends upon it,

Sitting on grass as soft as a feather,
With shining dew all around us,
Plucking two blooming fragrant flowers,
Placing tenderly on your flowing hair,

Looking in to your melting eyes,
Seeing sparkling stars dancing within,
No words spoken silence reigning,
As words would only break this enchantment,

Instead of sleeping thro' the night,
Awaiting the dawn of day at last,
I would grind whole day with pleasure,
Awaiting the fall of night fervently,

As during the night in a far off land,
Only in my recurring dreams,
I would really be living my dearest,
When I'm with you and you are with me,

Oh, how I long for the day,
When instead of only in my dreams,
I would be holding your hand,
Walking along the river fulfilling my dreams,

Until that day dawns at last,
For which we are yearning for in our hearts,
My solemn promise to you my love,
We would meet each night, in dreams at least,

    Marking end of pleasant weather
    Blooming dates palm
    Smiles happily a fresh

    Flower turns tiny green
    Grow into yellow, red, pink plum
    Fill with drops of honey
    Get burn to become golden fleshy palm
    Needs peak warm sunny
    Awaits a long summer

    Expecting turn golden fleshy palm

    මෝරන්නට කහ රතු
    පුරවන්නට පැණි බිදු
    පුච්චා දම් පැහැ
    ගෙනෙන තද හිරු රැස
    විද මිම්ම උසට සූසාලිස්
    කටුක ගිම්හානයක්...

    ඉඳි පල ගැන්විය යුතුමය
    ලබන්නට සිසිල් සුලඟක්

  6. Unable to compose
    A poem that will answer
    The feelings of this
    Beautiful Dreamer...
    Allow us to make a wish for you
    With our heartiest blessings
    May your dream come alive
    Whenever you want it to...

    Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you. ~Marsha Norman

    Dreaming is an act of pure imagination, attesting in all men a creative power, which if it were available in waking, would make every man a Dante or Shakespeare. ~H.F. Hedge

  8. @ ගල්මල්-Coral,

    විඳිනට අසීරු වුව ද,
    ගිම්හානය එළඹෙනුයේ හේතුවක් ඇතිවය,
    සොබා දහම සමබරය,
    සියල්ල ඇගේ දරුවනගෙ යහපත පිණිසමය,

    ස්තූතියි ඩීන්.......අපූරු ප්‍රතිචාර දෙකට සහ සබැඳියට,
