Drag the boxes onto the matching gaps.I looked around the place that I had called home for many years with a heavy sadness in my heart Home was where he was, but he has gone. I had to find a new place in the world-a new home. I had awaited his death for many months knowing that he was dying but this didn t quell the deep sorrow that pierced my heart when he left Yet, at the same time, I d felt an indescribable joy and sense of freedom-emotions that were not quite my own... Albus had gone to that other place and I somehow shared his exhilaration and relief as he left behind the pain and weariness that had consumed his body for too long. Albus had 'spread his wings' and it was now time for me to do the same
I stayed until they laid his body to rest, even though we d already said our goodbyes. When the ceremony was over I sang my song. I rejoiced in his freedom but shared the grief of the people he had left behind. My song was one of both fear and sadness, and hope and happiness. I, who had experienced physical death and rebirth so many times would truly leave behind my former life to be reborn in a new one. I would miss his physical presence, but knew that his spirit would remain with me. As he always said, Death is painful but it creates transformation rather than loss.
When my song ended I spread my wings and left my old home and life behind. Although I didn t then know my destination I understood that it would somehow find me. As I soared through the golden and crimsoned skies, I felt the cool rain wash over me and smelled the sweet pine from the forests below. Finally, I reached the ocean.
I left Scotland behind and flew through the night. One day, I will meet a new companion and we will stay together until she he completes her/his mortal journey. Afterwards, like my former companions including Albus), my new friend will frequently visit me in spirit and it will feel like old times.
The crescent moon and stars shine brightly against the now velvety black sky, and I am drawn to the magnetic north like the needle of a compass. Finally, in the distance, I see the startling beauty of Aurora Borealis the Northern Lights. In this ocean of emerald flames I will be reborn Then I will know where I need to go to begin my new life.
