revolutionary for the sake of it.
we move through that universal space called family
with or without you.
but in the dark of night
there is no escape
from the love, the angst, the grief,
the release our family trait,
our down fall.
we are one, one for all,
and none of that at all.
we are, with or without,
always have been
and now without you,
the you of us, the us that we always knew,
we continue to evolve as you would hope we would.
protector, provider, lover of all things,
animal, human and otherwise.
we have not even begun
to say goodbye so let this be our
first time on this day, your 90th birthday.
