Bailey Austin
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our much loved Son


Bailey was born in the United Kingdom on 21st September 2004 and passed away on 4th October 2004 at the age of 13 days and 3 hours old.

We will remember Him forever.

He will live on in his twin Sister MOLLIE-SUMMER.

Before you leave our boy's site please be kind enough to light a candle so that we know you have visited,thank you.

All i ask before you look at our precious

 angels site is that you do not take any 

of our pictures.They are our family.Thank you.

A heartbeat falls silent,
Tiny eyes close, 

A miniature body 

no longer grows. 

Mummy is shattered,
Daddy is sad, 

Fate has erased
the plans that we had. 

Through all of the grief 

that leaves their hearts torn, 

there's peace in knowing 

an angel was born !!



"Bailey, If tears could make a staircase And

heartaches make a lane, We'd walk the 

path to Heaven And bring you home again."


God saw that you were getting tired,

And a recovery was not to be. 

So he put His arms around you 

And whispered, "Come home with me." 

With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer 

And saw you fade away. 

Although we loved you dearly, 

We could not make you stay. 

A golden heart stopped beating: 

A determined spirit is at rest. 

God broke our hearts to prove to us 

He only takes the best.

A child that loses a parent is an orphan,

A man who loses his wife is a widower, 

A woman who loses her husband is a widow. 

However there is no name for a parent who loses a child, 

for there is no word to describe such pain. 


Ask my mum how she is

My mum, she tells alot of lies
She never did before
But from now, until she dies
She'll tell a whole lot more

Ask my mum how she is
And because she can't explain
She will tell a little lie
Because she can't describe the pain

Ask my mum how she is
She'll say that 'I'm alright'
If that's the truth, then tell me
Why does she cry each night

Ask my mum how she is
She seems to cope so well
She didn't have the choice you see
Nor the strength to yell

Ask my mum how she is
'Im fine, I'm well, I'm coping'
For Gods sake mum, just tell the truth
Just say your heart is broken

She'll love me all of her life
I loved her all of mine
But if you ask her how she is
She'll lie and say she's fine

I am here in heaven
I can not hug from here
If she lies to you, don't listen
Hug her and hold her near

On the day we meet again
We'll smile and I'll be bold
I'll say 'you're lucky to get in here mum,
with all the lies you told'

These are my footprints, so perfect and so small,

These are my footprints, never touched the ground at all.

I don't need these tiny footprints for now I have my wings,

These tiny little footprints were meant for other things.

You will hear my tiny footprints in the patter of the rain,

Gentle drops of Angel tears, of joy and not from pain.

You will see my tiny footprints in butterflies when they dance,

I'll let you know i am with you if you just give me the chance.

You will see my tiny footprints in the rustle of the leaves,

I will whisper names in the wind and call each one who grieves.

Most of all these footprints are found in my mummy's heart,

Cos even though I am gone we will never part

The Cord

We are connected, my child and I,
by an invisible cord not seen by the eye

It's not like the cord that connects us at birth
this cord can't be seen by anyone on earth

This cord does its work right from the start
It binds us together attached to my heart

I know that it's there though no-one can see
the invisibe cord from my child to me

The strength of this cord it's hard to describe
It can't be destroyed, it can't be denied

It's stronger than any cord man could create
It withstands the test, can hold any weight

And though you're gone, though you're not here with me
the cord is still there but no-one can see

It pulls at my heart, I am bruised, I am sore
but this cord is my lifeline as never before

I am thankful that God connects us this way
A mother and child, death can't take it away !





I said, God I hurt
And God said, I know

I said, I cry alot
And God said, That's why I gave you tears

I said, Life is so hard
And God said, That's why I gave you loved ones

I said, But my loved one died!!
And God said, So did mine!!

I said, It's such a great loss!!
And God said, I saw mine nailed to a cross!!

I said, But your loved one lives!!
And God said, So does yours!!

I said, Where is he now??
And God said, My Son is by my side and
Your Son is in my arms!!

Some people only dream of angels,we actually held one in our arms




There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is a part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be

He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn't very far.

He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
I would've held him every minute
if the end I only knew.

So I send this special message
to the Heavens up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love

I Thought Of You

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and the day before that, too.
I think of you in silence, I often say your name,
But all I have is memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part.
God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart.
I shed tears for what might have been, a million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone,
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.

A heart of gold stopped beating,
two shining eyes at rest,
god broke our hearts to prove,
he only takes the best.

God knows you had to leave us,
but you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day he took you home.

To some your forgotten,
to others part of the past,
but to us who loved and lost you,
the memory will always last.




DOES HEAVEN HAVE A PHONE NUMBER? / Mollie Austin (Baileys Twin )

Bailey went to Heaven, but We need him here today,
We need him right away,
Operator, can you tell me how to find him in this book?
Is heaven in the yellow part? I don't know where to look.
I think my Mummy needs him too; at night I hear Her cry.
I hear Her call his name sometimes, but I really don't know why.
Maybe if I call him, he will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven very far away, is it across the sea?
He’s been gone a long, long time; he needs to come home now!
I really need to reach him, but I simply don't know how.
Help me find the number please, is it listed under "Heaven"?
I can't read these big, big words; I am only one, not seven.
I'm sorry, operator, I didn't mean to make you cry,
So Operator, Please help me find Bailey. Then Mummy she won’t cry.
Coz Bailey will be back with us, and not an angel in the sky.


My Mum is a survivor or so i've heard it said,

But I can hear her crying when all others are in bed,

I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand,

She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.

But like the sands upon the beach that never wash away,

I watch over my survivng Mum who thinks of me each day.

She wears a smile for others, a smile of disguise,

But through Heaven's open door I see tears flowing from her eyes.

My Mum tries to cope with my death to keep my memory alive,

But anyone who knows her knows it's her way to survive.

As I watch over my surviving Mum through Heaven's open door,

I try to tell her Angels protect me forevermore.

I know that doesn't help her or ease the burden she bears,

So if you get a chance call to her, show her that you care.

For no matter what she says, no matter what she feels,

My surviving mum has a broken heart that time wont ever heal.

Our Child

On the day God took you
we thought that we would die
we wondered where the time went?
We asked alot of whys??
With people all around us
we felt alone inside
from all their words of comfort
we couldn't seem to hide.
We thought we might be dreaming
that we'd wake and find you here,
We thought "this can't be happening"
As we wiped another tear.
On the day that you were laid to rest
our hearts broke yet again,
we wondered if the pain would end.
But mostly we wondered when??
It's hard to be without you,
at times the days seem long,
sometimes we just sit crying,
when there is really nothing wrong.
We wish we'd had more time,
before your life was done.
I hope your resting peacefully
our precious little one

For my Daddy ......

I'll be there

Daddy please don’t look so sad, mummy please don’t cry.
Cause I’m in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies.
please, try not to question god, don’t think he is unkind.
don’t think he sent me to you, and then he changed his mind.

You see I am a special child, and im needed up above.
im the special gift you gave to him, im a product of your love.
I'll always be there with you, and watch the sky at night.
just find the brightest gleaming star, that's my halo shining light.

you'll see me in the morning frost, that mists your window pane.
that's me in all the summer showers, dancing in the rain.
when you feel a little breeze, from a gentle wind that blows.
that's me, I'll be there, planting kisses on your nose.
when you see a child that's playing and your heart feels a tug.
that's me, I'll be there giving your heart a hug.
so daddy please don't look so sad, and mummy please don't cry.
I'm in the arms of Jesus, and he sings me lullaby's

Don't cry for me Daddy,
I'm right here.
Although you can't see me
I see your tears.
I visit you often,
I go to work with you each day,
And when it's time for you to close your eyes ,
On your pillow is where I lay.
I hold your hand & stroke your hair,
And whisper in your ear.
If you're sad today Daddy,
Remember, I am here.
God took me home.
This we know is true.
But you'll always be My Daddy
Even though I'm not with you.
We will never be apart,
For everytime you think of me,
Please know I'm in your Heart..........
