Oh Brighid, My Mother,
Lady of the Flame, The Well, and the Forge,
Lady of Wisdom, Lady of the Stars, Divine Poetess
Hear My Plea:
Sing of Buttons’ memory and let her image be always on our minds
Take her soul, and keep her safe and warm
Until we can all be reunited in our eternal home
An Dagda! King, and Mighty Lord! The Good God!
With Your mighty strength, protect Buttons as she walks
Through the doors of the Otherworld
Lead her safe and sound to her eternal home
And let her be enveloped in the arms of my ancestors for all time
Let their strength and wisdom be as inspiration to us
In our time of grief, on this side of the Veil
Boann, Lady of Wisdom, Lady of the Boyne River!
Let Your rushing waters wipe Buttons’s soul clea
And free her from all of her pain forever more
May Your wisdom bring peace and healing to my family
On this side of the Veil, as we mourn our beloved Pet
Aengus Og! Caer Ibormeith!
May the bright lantern of Your love lead Buttons to safety
Let her be greeted joyously by my ancestors
And let their love wipe away all of her pain and fear
Kindle Love in our hearts, in our dreams
So we may still stay connected, blood to blood, heart to heart
Despite being on opposite sides of the Veil
Let Your Love and our Love burn as bright as a flame
And bring hope and honor into our lives,
As a fitting tribute for Buttons
Aine, Bright Lady, Red Mare, Lady of Love and Beauty!
Bless Buttons’s beautiful soul, lead her gently to the Otherworld,
And may she be honored by Your Kind Hand for her devotion to us,
Her family who is filled with grief at her passing.
Let the Light of Your Love fill Buttons’s soul with joy
As she returns safely into the arms of those who have gone on before
And let our love be a beautiful memory to inspire us despite our time of grief
Let this mourning period be brief, and shine Your Love upon our hearts
So that we all may find peace and healing one day soon
Manannan Mac Lir, God of the Sea! Fand, Queen of the Sea!
Guardians and Guides to the Otherworld!
Please, I beg of You Both, let Button’s soul
Pass safely and gently through the Veil
Bless her and lead her softly to the arms of my ancestors
Let them shower her with love and light, laughter and treats
And when the time comes, let us forever be reunited in the Summerland,
A family and a pack full of love, once more.
So mote it be.
