Anniversaries

There are anniversaries, both good and bad.  An example of a bad anniversary happened on the 4th of this month.  My cousin who was a year older than I died suddenly in his mother’s arms last year at their camp near here.  So that’s caused a little sadness not only in me, but with my family as well.  However, out of sadness comes happiness at times because another anniversary approaches or has approached.  I think, soon after the death of my cousin, I started writing to my beloved T’Keya.  This dark angel of my soul has done more to keep me happy in the last year than anyone has in recent memory.  So out of family tragedy came personal joy.  I wouldn’t trade my joy in my love for all the world.  I love you so much T’keya.  I’m glad you’re mine.
