Today, I am sad

I was just informed of the death of a fellow bloggers mother.

The only thing that comes to mind at a time like this is a line from the movie 300.

My heart is broken for your loss

My own parents are getting along in years now. I know that I will not deal well with their passing as residing deep in my soul is a child who remembers his parents as being invincible. That has never grown out of me and never will.

I will light a candle upon my alter to bring peace to your soul my friend.

Time has passed, the Wheel has turned.
It is time for me to move on.
I will walk hand in hand with the Ancient Ones,
and with my ancestors who came before me.

Great Mother, welcome me back into your womb,
I come to you and know I am blessed,
for my life has been one I am proud of.
As I enter your world, wrap me in your loving arms,
and welcome me.

Lord of Death, I wait for you to take me,
I come to you willingly, with eyes wide open,
as my last moment approaches on the horizon.
May I look upon you without fear, without pain,
and knowing that those who walked before me,
await me on the other side.

O Ancient Ones, give me strength to take these final steps,
and allow me to do so with peace and dignity.
Let my family mourn my passing but not my loss,
and let them heal knowing I will see them again.
Time has passed and the Wheel has turned.
It is time for me to move on.
