If Only - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Finding myself thinking deeply about death and loss,
being completely absorbed, tears flowing down my face,
heart crying for you so intently.

Wishing death wasn't so total and complete, if only
there could be a crack in it's armor we could find our
way to being together again.

Giving in to the silence of never-ending sorrow, relin-
quishing my spirit to the nothingness of not having
you with me ever again.

This mind still holding onto you through it's memories
of my heart, I cannot live without you, heart stopping
in the intense grief that is never-ending.
