Blessing for the grieving

In this time of grief and remembrance,
In this time of sadness and celebration,
May you find a gift within your loss.
That gift is gratitude for the love you have,
The times you shared,
The memories you made.
May Spirit help you keep your eyes and ears,
and all your senses, open to a new connection.
It might come any moment-
On a walk, while you’re driving,
or when you hear that certain song.
It’s a flower, or a smell, or a butterfly,
A dragonfly, a hawk or a crow.
And recognition gently reminds you.
Your love will always be.Let it sustain you when sadness rises,
When grief wells up and overtakes you.
May you find healing and peace.
