    For every star that you see shall touch your heart with respect just to hear the stars whisper your name and yet your eyes is the star with respect may your heart be fill with love.

    It was a pleasure to read your accomplished biography. 'Golden Poet Award five years in a row' is indeed a big achievement. I salute your hard work and dedication to poetry.
    Having 'self-published 31 books of poetry' is also no mean achievement. Bravo, well done!
    Your feelings are deep, as a result the expression is eloquent and fluent. And so the end result, i.e poetry is abundant. No wonder you have 14613 poems here, and 31 books published and more 10 on the way.
    May your prolific writing continue till the last day and may your journey remain peaceful and productive all the way. I wish you Godspeed.

    Hi RoseAnn. There are no coincidences in life. I'm so fortunate to have recently met you! You have inspired me to post my poems and re-tap into deeper spirituality. Cindi

    You are truly a genius RoseAnn in the poetic expression of your thoughts and emotions. I realized that when we first met. It is a wonderful experience of riding with you in your poem. I feel fortunate to have a friend like you, RoseAnn.

    Hi Roseann thanks for the comment on A voice calls, sadly for me the interpretation may take me a long while to work out, sometimes things leave my head before I think about them haha, this one was written sometime ago maybe when I was in my 20s but I have the feeling it was my reference to man turning from God and God retaliating, sounds lofty I know but I'm a much more simple person than what's in my head and I talk to much when I write as you can tell now haha.

    I thought your poem about the 43rd President was meaningful and had a beautiful message of hope.

    really, something hide between your words in every poetry...i like it...because something is a part of everything, so everything is connected to everything else...good...

Best Poem of RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Life's Black Curtains

Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
with sorrow.

Touched deeply by your life, not wanting to let go,
yet knowing I must.

In my heart forever, indelibly printed on my soul,
etched in memory's mind.

Touched frequently by the tears of your loss, trying
to hold them as tiny reminders of what we used to have.

They disappear, never become tangible so I may keep them
like a treasure of your love.

With love, I will remember you all my life, for you are
a part and parcel of what we had.

Sharing now that you are no longer ...
