Final Resting Place

Evergreen Cemetery

(At A Later Date)



In a blink of an eye,

Every thing changed,

Sanity disappeared,

And some people’s loves were rearranged.

Eyes filled with tears,

And hearts filled with sorrow,

Knowing that he wouldn’t be back tomorrow.

Guiltiness rushes within you,

“What could I have said?

What could I have done?”

But darling, you didn’t know the issue,

He decided to be gone,

And no, you did not do anything wrong,

He fought the battle for too long,



The demons overpowered so he decided to run,

Run away from his problems and fears,

Leaving everyone in tears.

But as he was running,

He gained some wings,

And flew up to the sky,

To see all the nice, and pretty things.

Maybe he didn’t get to say goodbye,

But darling, his new life is just about to begin!

But don’t you worry, you’ll see him again.

    I am so very sorry to hear about Austin’s passing. His life was way too short. He was always so full of life, and willing to be there for anyone who needed him. My heart aches for him and his family. May he be at peace.
