Sleep Well beautiful Willowsong...
Safely in the Arms of the Goddess
Willowsong, our dear friend and sister, passed over the western shores November 6, 1998.
Willo had been in a car accident and had later suffered a stroke while recuperating from head injuries. She seemed to be recovering in the past weeks, but quite suddenly and unexpectedly slipped from this world into the next on Friday.
She was a gentle and bright spirit who shall be sorely missed by her family and friends. We offer our condolences and love to all who shall find this world a little more lonely now that she has left it.
Yet, as Pagans, we are confident that Life goes on. Willo, having accomplished her tasks in this lifetime, now moves toward a new beginning and into the arms of the Old Ones whom she served so well.
Messages of remembrance can be offered in the ritual room at Remembering Willowsong.
Weeps Not, Our Willo...
The leaves on the Willow have now turned into gold,
Yet with no regrets, do they now lose their hold
And flutter down so softly that they seem to sigh
Into peaceful slumber. And so they will lie
Until the tight buds shall open under Spring's warming hand
And reawaken in time as Life comes back to the land.
The cycle continues, as it always has done
With the coming of rebirth, with return of the sun.
Light brings forth from the darkness a promise of dawn;
A Life may be hidden, but it is never really gone.
The Willow stands swaying in each tender breath
of the breezes that whisper, There is no last death.
Because, dear friend, each time we pass by a gentle Willow tree,
We shall touch its sweet branches and think about thee.
Good Journey, Friend! May Love and Light Guide Your Path...
November, 1998 c.e.
