A year has passed by

Major Raja De Silva Amarasekera

My Husband
I met you 53 years ago
But you left our daughters and me one year ago
You had dinner and you were with me
Next moment you were gone from me
Oh! Raja why did you leave me
Now there is no one to take care the way you did of me
Who is there to call me when I get late
No one is there to wait for me at the gate
We were together for 43 years
You looked after me in every way all those years
Though you were a disciplinarian
You were such a gentle peace-loving person
In all those years I knew you
You never uttered a single word against any person
You were always concerned of others' well being
It is seldom that you find those qualities in a human being
Loving memories of the past I retain
May my beloved husband Nibbana attain
Why Raja why did you leave me along in this world.
What is there for me to live any longer in this world
I have lived one year without you
Every single minute of the day my mind is with you
How many years more do I have to live in this agony without you ?
