Only Yesterday - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Listening to echoes of the past recalling life
that existed only yesterday.

Wanting to be engulfed within it's possibilities,
being held tightly by your love.

Feeling your soothing voice calming me, touching
this soul with your spirit.

Yet, still I cannot see or touch you physically,
heart breaking, mind cracking open.

Finding nothing but memories of you and our life
together, unable to put any of them back again.

They refuse to become a reality of the present
and are always dead when I come into my future.

So lonely and bereft, not wanting to step into
another morning, sun blinding me within.

Finding nothing, but shadows of our life together,
wanting every desire to be fulfilled like before.

Knowing that it will never happen, you are lost to
me forever in life, I cannot live without your love.
