Death is the beginning

Location

Death is not the end.
Death is the beginning. 
Beginning of heartbreak, 
Of tears, tissues, and time standing still. 
It's the beginning of flowers, goodbyes, and "I'm Sorry's" 
Death is the door that will release a flood of memories. 
It is the beginning of your new life, without the person who you so deeply loved. 
It is the beginning of the deep ache in side of you that threatens to tear you apart from the inside. 
Death is not the end.
Death is the beginning 
Beginning of emptiness,
Of anger, awareness, and answers. 
It is the beginning of readjustment, shock, and pain.
The ground starting to reclaim the new object placed six feet under the surface. 
The start of a stone being so carefully engraved upon. 
It is the beginning of your inheritance. 
It is the beginning of decisions that need to be made. 
Death is not the end. 
Death is the beginning
