If there is a consciousness 

in the next life–

a consciousness of self,

then on this day, 

August 31

my Beloved will know that 

it is a sacred day for me.

It was on August 31 that he came into this world

and despite disappointments

real challenges, suffering

and an abbreviated life

he loved with such gusto and

experienced most days with

so much appreciation 

that he has indelibly inscribed

Love on many hearts. 

He forever changed me.

Happy birthday, Daniel.
