Happy Birthday Big Brother

Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.

                                      Theodore Roethke

My brother holds the light.
He keeps the light deep. 
Unable to accept the joy.
The joy he makes and the the joy
he is given.

Be gracious today and accept your
Don't fight the wave but surrender.
Surrender.  Allow the warmth of
unconditional love to encompass
your being.
Laugh, sing and eat well.

Allow all who are near to love you.
Submit to kindness.
Nothing necessary in return.
No score keeping.

We understand and accept the
tenderness of your heart.

Oxalá,  que este dia repita por muitos anos.

Happy Birthday.
