My Sri Lankan sweet pea

It’s now crystal clear… I need not be told
I am falling for a Sri Lankan sweet pea. I can’t hold
My feelings… she’s a darling dame, a beauty to behold
She’s got a guy, but to me she’s more than gains and gold

How I wish I could live forever in her singing sky,
Her rhymes and rhapsodies ring… giving me wings to fly
I have promised my self that I will not love for now… it turned a lie
My heart is hot for a buddy I have not seen… I need an eagle’s eye

I have never seen, held or used a Sri Lankan rupee
But I am dying for this colorful… cute Asian sweet pea
I’m caged in thy colorful cell oh Crystal… you’ve got the key
Give me thy love, life and all; please do this to set me free

My love for...Cystal Koelmeyer

Do you think love is real?
I do not know how funny I now feel

For a girl I have never seen… silent still,
Oh, I think I am climbing the highest hill

I have hated love as hell
I think it’s a cruel, colorful cell

But how on earth did I fell into this well
…With a Sri Lankan blessed bell? I can’t tell.

We all need someone to hold tight
All through the day and the darkest night

But I’d never wanted to fall in love … is it right?
Oh! I want her to be my might and me her knight

Love has given me the flu… 
My heart hurts, I have got feelings that’s blue

I can hear her sing, seducing me with a clue
Yet Crystal may not have known that this is true.

Love like a flower will fade at night 
Yet my love will be thy stars… a saintly sight

The stars may fade at the sight of daylight
But my heart will be with you both day and night

SRI LANKA IN 1996 WCC



                                       ***

                           Once called Ceyloneans,
                       The lion-seizers are Sri Lankans.

                        A tear drop in Indian Ocean, 
                      Arjuna's men were on a mission.

                    Sanath, Aravinda, Vaas and Murali,
                      Made the rivals pack up early.

                     Power play was used in style,
                    Opening pair went an extra mile.

                    Lanka being Indian dimunitive,
                    Proved to be very destructive.

                   Lahore finale was a treat unique,
                    Benazir flaunted winning streak.

                   Thus, the people got unusual gift,
                   Inspite of civil war and huge rift..!!

                                      **
*Benazir- Lt. Benazir Bhutoo, the then Pakistan Prime Minister who bestowed the trophy to Sri Lankan Cricket team. Every Asian became emotional when Sri Lanka clinched the coveted title.A very proud moment..it was.

IN THE NAME OF GOD,COME

What is the third world war?-
"I don't know about the third world war but the fourth,
To fight the fourth,there is no an Earth"
Replied,Albert Einstein,a leraned of worth

The world is ready and armed with bombs
Saying no to all the lives in wombs

"Like cures like"-
The Aborigines of the Australian
The Onkays of the Andaman
The Gond and Koitur of the Indian
The Veddha genes of the Sri Lankan- 
Oh,the tribes of ancient,
Come,for God's sake,in the name of God,come,come!

ICC 20

Finishing the game,
Starting happiness
Over,
ICC 20 overs-
Winning the purpose of game,
Putting the hands of might on the shoulders of fame
Twenty,yes,twenty-
Twenty million Sri Lankans hands played,
Twenty million Sri Lankans hands prayed,
To bring victory to all the Seven billion people
On this planet
Up and down,
Right and left,
In all the directions in air,
Fled the ball like a jet
In tired and in pain the Ball, hitting it's head on the bat 
Every bit of soil of Dhaka kissed the ball,
Rolled all over it's chest,in proud
Dhaka in delight and in full of light
As the moon and stars came close to the Earth,
To witness the game
Sun found a hide out fearing the mighty Earth!
Small and beautiful, Sri Lankan Island,
But,very big it's heart,
Give me time,enough time
To portion the victory,
To every man,every woman,every boy and every girl on the Earth
Look at your right shoulder,the right foot,
Look at your left shoulder,the left foot
Of the champion,SANGAKKARA!
Hats off,Sri Lanka,
CONGRATULATIONS!
