This tear drop isn't mine - මේ කඳුළු බිංදුව මගේ නොවෙයි

This tear drop isn't mine
but yours...

This crescent of a tear drop 
glittering in a faint glow 
through the silky canopy
as cold as a fading star
lifeless and dying 
is your possession 
it isn't mine

You who taught me 
to read the sorrowful words 
of the scripture of demise 
to me who never knew 
the bitterness of weeping
you are the owner of 
this tear drop so cold
it isn't mine
