Funeral Prayer

She walked the path that descends to death;
herself still living, she braved the journey
and brought rebirth to those beyond hope
dwelling in the coldest regions,
living in the halls of Earth.
Facing Death boldly, she led him to love
and taught him the secrets that only she knew.
It was her great courage that taught us to dare
and her example that we should follow
in the heart of trouble that may beset us.
