Every Year I'll Wonder...

I've been sitting here for a couple hours, trying to figure out how to express my thoughts on the night before Austin's 23rd birthday. But I realize my thoughts and feelings are too mixed up to put "on paper" at this time. But, one thing has been running through my mind... "Austin will be forever 21 years old in my memory... but I wonder, if he was still here...Who'd he be today?"

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
I see your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can't believe you're gone

It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
The death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing no one could take your place.

Sometimes I wonder who you'd be today

Would you see the world?
Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family?
I wonder, what would you name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy...

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know I'll see you again someday...

Thank you Austin for blessing me with the 21 years and 9 months you were here physically. And thank you for blessing me with the beautiful memories and friends you left us these past 15 months. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I love and miss you more than you can imagine!
