I Will Be Like the Sun

Like The Sun

“I will be like the sun veiled by the clouds,” said the Imam [atf].

Like The Sun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

O Imam! You said, “I will be like the sun
Veiled by the clouds….”

And I do not see the sun on a dark day.

Yet surely even in darkness my heart beholds you,
And is bleached from the light
Of your radiant, pure soul.

O Imam! I await you!
I await the sun’s rays on my face –
The joy of warmth that I remember without having felt!

For surely my heart basks in sunshine,
Delighting in the warmth of God’s Mercy
That made me love you.
