A Blessing for the Dying

We bless you on your journey.
We honor and celebrate the life that has been yours;
The lives you’ve touched,
The legacy you leave.

We release old wounds and regrets.
We forgive and are forgiven.
We cherish the life we shared,
The life that is larger than us.

Out of mystery we are born,
And mystery receives us when we die.
With sorrow and gratitude for all that has been,
We bless you on your journey.
