“A Prayer for the Dying”

I am grateful for the sun.

I am grateful for the sea.

I am grateful for my wife and my children.

I am grateful for the winds that blow, the rain that falls, the storms that rage.

I am grateful for the day.

I am grateful for the night.

I am grateful for the dog and the cat, the hare and the fish, the scorpion and the snake.

I am grateful for the moon and the stars.

I am grateful for the call of the wild coyote, the honk of the flying goose, the snarl of the hunting tiger.

I am grateful for the fire. I am grateful for its warmth, the cooking of my food, the cleansing of my village.

I am grateful for the darkness that encloses me after the fire goes out. I am grateful that in the night no one can see me no one can hear me no one can laugh at me.

I am grateful for new beginnings. It’s going to be fine.
