Possibilities by

Blessing for Burying the Dead

With love as tender as crocuses
We bless you
With friends as steadfast as labradors
We bless you
With memories as lively as butterflies
We bless you
With possibilities as inviting as parkland
We bless you
With life as hopeful as ducks’ eggs
We bless you
With mercy as transforming as sunrise
We bless you
