ေဝေတာ့လည္း တူ
ေၾကြေတာ့လည္း အတူတူ
ျငဴစူျခင္း ကင္း
မွ်ဥ္းမွ်ဥ္း အသက္ရွဴ
မႏိုင္ဝန္ ပိ
ေသာအခါ မွာ
ေၾကြသာ ေၾကြလည္း
မေသ ဝိညာဥ္ ဝဲပ်ံေနေသးတကား ….။ ။

To the SHWE Duo

SHWE duo
Blossom in unison
Disappear together
Free from complaint
Even with thin breath
Showed mark [of courage and wisdom]
Never ever wavered …
Pressed by burden
At the awaited turn [of journey’s end]
Body — inheritance [from previous lives]
Succumbs [to failing health]
Yet, “Wei-nyin” is fresh, alive and hovering.
