A Sri Lankan Prayer
Seed the empty clouds of my heart
With a downpour of your love.
Gather the raindrops of joyfulness
And rinse away my melancholy.
Shower the land of my mind
With thoughts beneficial to all.
Sprinkle true motivation through
The charitable deeds that I do.
Water my efforts at forgiveness
With the flowing rains of compassion.
