A Small Corner - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

An unfettered sadness reigns within my being, total
abandonment of love once found in a small corner of
earth.

Yet, the fullness of friendship fills up loneliness,
taking again it's rightful place.

All of earthly life is rife with sadness, yet the
joy of friendship fills me from heaven.

Knowing Father is with me I rejoice, even though his
loss has left sadness.

Today he speaks to me still, creating hope within,
enabling me to know I will once again be with him.

Father C., a friend on earth and now in heaven, stays
and guides me through the narrowness of life on earth.

Father promised never to abandon me and has been true to
his word, praying to him, knowing he sits close to God.

All prayers are answered when I ask him to intercede,
especially when a prayer is for one of his own Jesuits.

Life is sad and lonely, and I could not bear it if Father
weren't here to protect and guide me for our Lord.
