In this time of grief and remembrance,
In this time of sadness and celebration
May you find a gift that lies deep within your loss.
That gift of 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-
In the shower, while you’re driving, or when you hear that certain song.
It’s a flower, or a smell, a butterfly, or a dragonfly or a bird.
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.
