Silent Reminders - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

I lost you a moment ago, when silence filled the room
with darkness.

Off to another experience beyond my sight and scope -
I can only imagine it.

A stillness overtakes me as I realize I'm no longer
seeing you, only a remnant of you lying in bed in front
of me.

Tears flow heavily, they can't be stopped, they won't
go away.

Life has changed forever, there are only reminders left
silently behind, of your existence.

Painfully emotional, I'm left in the wake of your
passing, trying to stay afloat with grief as my only
lifesaver.

Drowning in the deepest sadness of earthly life, somehow
I get on a pathway, but can't take steps to move forward -
not yet.
