TO A GREAT POINT MAN WHO DIED A HERO
William (Buck) Austin
It's been almost 33 years that your life was taken from you in an ambush.
No One Died AloneIn the jungle of my heart,
No one died alone ~
No one died in pain and fear
Thinking of his home.
In the graveyards of my memory
Every brother, sister,
And in the shadows of the night
Though I never met him, he was my great uncle.
I thought I would show my respect by giving this poem.
From his greatniece,
208 Power Circle, Hudson NC 28638
