Where workers stand in Sri Lanka’s garment-industry boom
Lovingly, to you
With a big burden in your heart
You smile, ignoring tears and hardships in life
Striving in the factory to attain prosperity for it;
You are a courageous Lankan woman serving the country.
Your heart fills with love for your children always
Daily, you try to provide for your sons
With nimble hands, you stitch clothes
This factory runs with your courage.
Weaving clothes using various patterns
You enhance the looks of beautiful women
For bringing in foreign exchange to Sri Lanka
You are appreciated this way.
