When I Depart From You

Our Beloved and Guiding Prophet passed away on April 9, 1984. While he was alive, he had instructed Daheshists in writing to recite eight items during his interment, beginning with a prayer and then followed by seven expressive pieces in a specific order. The following piece is the third:

When I depart from you

When distance places a formidable obstacle between you and myself, and I am no longer visible to your eyes—eyes that long to see my familiar face.

When you are urged by a strong longing to meet with me, the way we used to meet, at that point, remember what I used to tell you, bring my image closer to your thoughts, and rest assured that your wish is the same as my wish and that it was the only reason for my living.

That’s because I love you so much! Love you so much!

When you are ascertained that I was lashed, slapped, insulted, and driven by the lashers while being insulted, cussed, and then thrown in a horrific and scary prison, where they did not even provide me with food to satisfy my extreme hunger and quench my unbearable thirst, at that point, remember me, my beloved, and likewise, your memories will be intermixed with my Spirit.

That’s because I love you so much! Love you so much!

When the days pass, the months end, and the years vanish, while you are awaiting my return to stay with you with much desire, however, your insistent desire remains trapped and unfulfilled within your chests, at that point…remember my past meetings with you, my dearest, and say: It was a delightful dream that roamed this world for moments and then disappeared.

That’s because I love you so much! Love you so much!

When you lose hope in my return to you, and time turns over its years in a gloomy and persisting manner, and my memories roam in your hearts, you will read what I had left you, and at that point, say: He left our world like a lightning. Be certain that I will observe you from my distant world with much longing…

That’s because I love you so much! Love you so much!

Dr. Dahesh
