A Streak Of Light - Poem by Obed Akuma
Close to the east window in the blanket of darkness I sit
My heart throbbing with expectancy: when can I see it?
A glance into the darkness I throw
But darkness all around I see
Heavily hanging on my shoulders
But my heart throbs: when can I see it?
Again a glance I throw
Into the long dark night
A star seems I to beckon
But soon it is swallowed up by heavy darkness
Another star appears then disappears
On and on moments go by
A song rings in my heart
“Sweet by and by”
Eternity seems to go by
A throb propels another glance
I humbly obey and a glance I throw
Then my eyes become moistened
My heart gives a heavy throb
My body by an electrifying joy is gripped
At last I have seen it!
It is there like reality itself!
And glad my heart became
For seeing that streak of light
That red-orange ray that from the east-horizon shot
Brightening the whole dark night
Of my soul and heart
A new dawn signaling the break of a new day
A day to spend with the owner of that streak of light
A joyous day full of vitality
That everlasting day
A glorious moment of eternity
With blissful company of the Almighty
