Once A Star Of Life - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

The star of my life has disappeared from sight.
Gone beyond boundaries of this mortal life,
succumbed to heavenly departure.
Crying, wishing, feeling the emptiness left behind, wanting
her to be with me and knowing it can never be again.
Reality is so strong - so unembraceable - so cold.
Remembrances of living with her, growing up and together,
knock hard against my mind, making it cry out in pain.
Lifeless anticipation bellowing from within, hurting and
full of sorrow, pleading for a reprieve - an ending of
life - to diminish it's pain.
No one hears and I continue everlastingly to miss you.
