My Godparents had a high regard for the Sinhala language. They lived and worked for God. I am blessed to be guided and encouraged by their love and faith. This “kaviya” is my humble tribute to them.
A farewell song drifting from afar
Mixed with sighs from memory
The stars that shone
In the pavilion of elders
Disappear one by one
May our Father of eternal peace
Give us the strength to carry on
