Deep Origin of everything,
our Ever-Present Friend,
in grief and hope your praise we sing,
aware that life must end.

Our friend has died. We say her name
and each our stories tell
to honor all that she became,
give thanks, and say farewell.

Our glimpses of her words and ways
are fleeting, and too few,
but you have numbered all her days
and know her through and through.

Your memory holds all we were
and are and yet will be,
not as an echo or a blur
but in reality.

Retrieve, repair, redeem, restore,
until again we meet,
love’s far dimensions to explore,
transformed, and made complete.

(Use “her”, “his”, “she”, “he”, “him” as appropriate.)
