Prayer to the Lord of Death

Lord of Death, I will greet you soon with arms wide open in trust
as I cross the boundary into your realm.
I will enter the world beyond worlds
with my eyes open and my head lifted,
ready to experience its unique wonders,
no less beautiful than in this world I have know.
I will go to the Land of Youth,
to rest in your halls, O gods of my people,
to commune with the spirits of those who have gone this way
and who wait for me, there on the other side.
