Farewell Prayer

Spirits who have spent this time with us,
we know it is now time for you to return to your homes,
and you know this too:
this is our last knowing-together.
We give you this food,
to keep you strong on your journey.
We give you this drink,
to quench your thirst.
We give you these words,
to lighten the way.
With gifts and words, we give our farewell,
to you, Revered Ones,
who have blessed us today.
As you go on your way, you go with our thanks.
