Poems of the Passing

An anthology of poems written shortly after the passing of the Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith

The author of this moving anthology was for twenty years the wife, companion and confidential secretary of the head of her Faith - Shoghi Effendi Rabbani, the great grandson of Bahá'u'lláh, the Founder of the Bahá'í Religion.

Although she had written poems off and on all her life, the shock and grief of the sudden passing of him who was at once the head of her Faith, as well as her own beloved husband, called forth from the depths of her heart this stream of deeply moving expressions of grief.

It was the author's ardent hope that in sharing them with others they may echo the grief of separation in this world from our loved ones and the confident hope of reunion with them in an eternal realm of spiritual progress and mercy.
