Funeral Prayer to the Goddess

His whole life has been like waiting and growing in your womb.
The time has come for his birth, from this world into another.
Bring him, Goddess, through the pangs of this new birth,
there into that other world.
Hold your baby there, draw him close to you,
feeding him with inexhaustible milk from your ever giving breasts.
Rock him in your soothing arms, until he knows the peace of a baby resting in his complete faith in his mother.
