Blessing for Goodbyes

a girl holding a suitcase walks down a path surrounded by fields
The God of change
smiles as we grow.
The God of passage
holds our hands as we fail. 
The God of flux
praises us as we flourish.
The God of upheaval
cries with us as we leave.
The God of progress
guides us as we say goodbye.
To you, oh God of change, passage, flux, upheaval, and progress
be with us as the seasons turn,
hold our hearts, as we grow, fail, flourish, leave, and say goodbye.
