RoseAnn V. Shawiak Poems
Life's Black Curtains
Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
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 ...
Reminders Lying Silently
Reminders of a good time had are lying silently upon the
floor, respectfully touching many memories of happiness
and joy of a wonderful evening had by all.
Smiles and laughter filling my mind with wonder and awe
of what life can hold freely for everyone in this world,
quietly moving towards the sun on another horizon now.
