No Promises Were Given - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Memories of yesterday filter through into the present,
bringing bittersweet joy to my mind.

Emptiness today, fills my being with it's abandonment,
taking me into sorrowful moments of grief.

Walking down our street alone, remembering your hand in
mine, laughing, talking, doing normal everyday things to-
gether.

Now my hand grasps onto nothing, I walk silently, not
really noticing anything, just remembering things you've
said in the past that make me smile even now.

Life has lost it's meaning, you have gone away and I am
left here missing you with my unspent love still being
held within my heart.

Loving and holding your memory close my dear, hoping to
be with you again, yet there were no promises given to
me when you were taken by death.

This total unknowing, whether I will see you again when
dying is tearing me apart inside, all I want is to be
with you.

As millions of tears flow from my heart, showing to this
world how I truly felt about you, my dearest love, I fall
into a fathomless, restless sleep without your love tonight.
