lyrics

O Breakwell, O my dear one!
Where now is thy fair face? Where is thy fluent tongue?

[O Breakwell, O my dear one!]
Where thy clear brow? Where thy bright comeliness?

Where is thy fire, blazing with God’s love?
Where is thy rapture at His holy breaths?
Where are thy praises, lifted unto Him?
Where is thy rising up to serve His Cause?

O Breakwell, O my dear one!
Where are thy beauteous eyes? Thy smiling lips?
The princely cheek? The graceful form?
O Breakwell, O my dear one!...

Thou hast reached unto the grace of the invisible realm,
and offered thyself at the threshold of its Lord.

O Breakwell, O my dear one!
[O Breakwell, O my dear one!]

Thou hast left the lamp that was thy body here,
the glass that was thy human form,
thy earthy elements, thy way of life below.
O Breakwell, O my dear one!

Thou hast lit a flame in the lamp of the Company on high,
thou hast set foot in the Abhá Paradise,
thou hast found a shelter in the shadow of the Blessed Tree,
thou hast attained His meeting in the haven of Heaven...

Thou art become a star in the supernal sky,
and a lamp amid the angels of high Heaven;
a living spirit in the most exalted Kingdom,
throned in eternity.

O Breakwell, O my dear one!

I ask of God to draw thee ever closer,
[I ask of God to] hold thee ever faster;
to rejoice thy heart with nearness to His presence...

I shall never forget thee...
O Breakwell, O my dear one!

From Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, No. 158
