A Prayer for Those Left Behind, (9-11)
Within my tradition we believe there is no death. Whence we’ve crossed over into the spirit world we are embraced by our ancestors and will never be alone again. So my prayer is for the living who walk this ambivalent world in the pall of grief and loneliness.
Maheo’ hear my prayer, fore I ask in a humble way.
I pray for the living and their broken spirits
Fore they truly walk in a much emptier world
Their hearts still filled with grief and sorrow
May the winds of the four direction
Whisper the words of their fallen loved ones
The words they need to hear
To let them know they are with you
In the land from which we all came from
And the land from which we all shall return
Creativity is the byproduct of a fertile mind
