A poem for Daniel

As I was walking
in sorrow
thinking of the times
we'd shared
a butterfly danced
around me
white cloud
in the evening air
I knew that your soul
was finally home free
"but it felt like a blessing"
was the message
you were sending me
telling me
now you can fly
now you can soar
high above this world
your troubles
are no more
this love of ours 
will never die
fly with your angels
A few days after
your loved ones
gathered and prayed
in their lives
you were a blessing 
now they must
send you 
on your way
as I got up
to speak
it caught my eye
white cloud
against the window
a butterfly
now you can fly
now you can soar
high above this world
your troubles 
are no more
now the time has come
for us to
say goodbye
one day we'll
all meet again
we will fly
all butterflies

"The  year has flown by faster than the last. I think about you and Kiara often and wonder what truly happened to the cat that was your best friend. your confident and what you loved most in life. Almost 100 percent of Kiaras life was tenderly sitting by your side or laying near you as you suffered all those years. So many things I would change if I could just see you one more time standing by the water on the wharf.
The silence in my life is deafening and when I look toward the city all I see is a blanket of fog as my heart sinks deeper in sadness in grief over you my brother I know you are no longer there. I miss you.  I love you.."

"Today you are 59. Happy Birthday Daniel. You are still very much in my thoughts and in my heart. Jill just recently contacted me. It didn't feel the same. When you passed we became detached for good. The wounds from that weekend have never healed and probably never will. That's horrible to say but she has spent most of her adulthood detaching me from the family. Like the time you and her went to see Donny's daughter and I wasn't included in the visit. Or the many times she's come to California never bothering to let me know she was coming or inviting me to have dinner with the two of you when I was so close, less than 100 miles. I had to find out through Facebook after the fact and felt detached. You; not giving me her address or phone number all those years because it was her request that you didn't. I think it's best I keep her detached. Her wish has been fulfilled like everyone else's."

"I miss you so much. It was a comfort for so many years in just knowing you were close by but now you are gone and I'm left alone with sweet memories of us. Can you see me as I grieve often over you? Are you with your angels reaching out to me trying to console and comfort me?Show me some sign that you are in peace and that you will never forget me. I love you Daniel, so much still. You are my rock and my will."

"It's already been a year since you went away. I keep waiting for a sign from you something that will let me know that all of us live on after earth and the human body. Just to know that you are free from the suffering and pain. That we do live on in peace knowing that we still exist as never ending energy forces. I wait but still there is no sign from you. We had been through so much together- Daniel, find a way to tell me I don't have to fear death, that we transend into a beautiful world free of pain. Merry Christmas, I love you..Sis"

"It's summer and I miss you as I think of walking the warf and flying that beautiful kite. The many times I would loose my car, but walk right to it in the mornings. The hours we spent listening to Phoebe Snow. The evening in Burbank, the night at Finnocios. You coming to Modesto and hanging out. I love you forever my brother. Pray for me always."

He was a saint in your eyes so blue.
May the days get brighter while his love shines on you .
As those eyes turn from blue to lovey memories for you.
My heart goes to you Kimberly"
