This was the last song of the year, week 52 of the Song Project. It is a full-circle song. It re-visits the theme of life coming from death, of newness being born of the old, so that the two are barely distinguishable. They're both part of the same Universe of Living Spirit and its endless cycles.

Lyrics

The last breath
of a dying bird
becomes the wind
that carries the seed

The final flutter
of her wings
fans the fire
that rages through the decay

The light that fades
from her eyes
is the Spirit
that illuminates a long-forgotten darkness

Death lights the way
Death lights the way
Light the way
Light the way
