Ashes 

I release you to this body of water. I release you to God. My heart goes with you.
Though I will always remember that wherever there is water, you are there.

As this water evaporates and becomes clouds, then rain, then rivers...
I will remember that in that water, you are there.

When I see a cloud, I will remember that you are watching over me.
When I stand in the rain, you are surrounding me.
When I swim in a river, you are embracing me.
When I sit beside a stream, you are beside me.
When I see dew on a petal, I see you.

So as I release you to this water, I release you to God. My heart goes with you.
Though I will always remember that wherever there is water, you are there.
