October Sixteenth, 1965

October Eleventh, 1995


Here Lies Interred the body of

Mitchell Ray Walden

Who Suddenly Departed This World

On The Eleventh Day of October

Anno Domini Nineteen Hundred And Ninety Five

In The Twenty-Ninth Year of His Age

Just a boy

He’s just a kid

The most bedazzling spirit

I have ever known

Riding the wave of a new generation



He says

He says to no one in particular

Make me famous if you can


So naive and vulnerable

Revealing doubts courageously

Touching my heart with his wounded palm

The one that scarred from a rusty nail


Make me famous if you can

I need to know my life has meaning

I need to know my love is real


I pressed my lips upon his brow

He smiled that smile we all adore

… I wished him a safe passing



I said

I said to Mitch

I said to him I promise



Just wait

Just wait I said

Just wait and see what I will do

To make your memory lasting

Time is priceless, I hold yours to be just as valuable as I hold mine. I appreciate your input.
