“I am the great sun, but you do not see me… I am the captive, but you do not free me… I am the truth, but you will not believe me…” ~ Charles Causley
The Great Sun
I Am the Great Sun is a beautiful sonnet that was composed by Charles Causley as a result of him being inspired by a 1632 Normandy crucifix. The words are simple, yet profound. And those who are on the path of light, will most definitely recognize the power behind these words and the wonderful place they were truly inspired from.
I am the Great Sun
I am the great sun, but you do not see me,
I am your husband, but you turn away.
I am the captive, but you do not free me,
I am the captain but you will not obey.
I am the truth, but you will not believe me,
I am the city where you will not stay.
I am your wife, your child, but you will leave me,
I am that God to whom you will not pray.
I am your counsel, but you will not hear me,
I am your lover whom you will betray.
I am the victor, but you do not cheer me,
I am the holy dove whom you will slay.
I am your life, but if you will not name me,
Seal up your soul with tears, and never blame me.
