Bitterness Of Loss - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Bittersweet are tears of sorrow.
Our minds are filled with sweet, gentle memories of
life together while our hearts overflow with the
of loss as we children grieve our father's death.
Sorrow holds us tightly, then with tears gently lets
us go.
Knowing Mom and Dad are now together for eternity is
wonderful knowledge - joyful to our minds and souls.
We couldn't wish Dad back, knowing he has left this
earthly difficult life behind, yet at times we wish
he'd come
back so we could hug and hold him for dear life.
Death is so strange as it fills us all with such
conflicting emotions, feelings and thoughts, leaving
us in a quandary each our own.
Our only seemingly common denominator is a genuine
deep love for Dad always and forever.
As our lives continue forever changed, we look forward
to one day being re-united in heaven with Mom, Dad and
all the rest of our tight-knit, close Italian family.
