A Day Well Finished

A Day Well Finished 

At the closing of the day:
As the shadows fade from light.
I pause for a moment to pray;
Before welcoming in the night.

Sage and sweetgrass smoke ascends;
As Grandmother Moon makes her entrance.
My thoughts of oneness transcends;
For this day of honor and remembrance.

My deep respect for those who came before;
May they never be forgotten.
The Ancestors, Elders, and Mentors;
I, their child, begotten.

How small am I in the great mystery;
And great the way they provided.
To know them each from history;
Their promises will be requitted.

Good night Moon, Stars, and Sky;
This day has been finished well.
Heart and mind you unify;
May there be peace where your spirits dwell.
