The Lord you're crying for, is around you

Need to be spiritual to find Light of Lord
Remove all obstacles being right guard
Spiritual light you searching is very vast
Be spiritual to renew your pledge very fast

The spiritual light wants to see; is in you
But we’re not doing that though is in you
The Lord you're crying for, is around you
Search spiritually as he is in search of you

Realize are born with wings; try to fly high
Not in search and are crawling like a baby
Thinking in what language does He speak?
Language is silence, mutely be in his search

In past I was thinking that I am very clever
But no, not I’m a student of a learning folk
When I die don't to try find me in my Tomb
Not be there try to find me in peoples' hearts.

See silence is not gold but silence is God
Be silence and move, its language of God
Was surprise with my new findings by God?
If follow, will be soon closer to him; I hope!

Being followers of Imam still have to do a lot
Not only do a lot but we have to sacrifice a lot
Without which we’ll not be near to our destiny
Be a leading example which others may quote

Imam has been telling us since decades to do
Are taking it very lightly and half hardheartedly
Our first duty is to help others to set on course
We’re not up to the mark see shaking the globe!
