Blessing for the Bereaved

May you feel my care even though I do not know you

For I would listen carefully if we should meet.

So speak into the wind

In words or without words, or by whatever means is your best way,

And know that your words and silent cries are being held and carried by the air currents, and are reaching another’s heart

Even if you cannot see whose heart it is.

May you search for loveliness and beauty even in the small things; in the rocks, the sand, in everything, especially in the places where you least expect to find it

Knowing that it will be there, when you dare to look.

May you be met with comfort from the presence and the gentle touch of your beloveds

And from the eyes of strangers.

May you receive solace from your memories.
