Farewell Prayer

You go now to your homes,
our friends,
from this place of celebration.
We go now to our homes,
your friends,
from this place of celebration.
As friends we have shared this time,
as friends enjoyed this party together,
as friends celebrated these rites,
each one doing what friends do when they get together.
We will celebrate again,
as friends do,
here, or elsewhere,
always in a place of celebration.
