The Abyss Of Life - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Staring out into the abyss of life, feelings of emptiness creep inside.
Taking hold of a heart's vulnerable places, it pushes it's way in,
leaving no where for tears to fall.
Wondering for only seconds why life is so painful, brushing away
tears from love sent up above.
Love is so sacred and holy, that when it is lost in death it's very
hard to go on.
Minutes elapse slowly, life seems to be continuing in slow motion.
There is nothing more to do in life except touch others with love
and acceptance.
Everything else loses it's meaning, because death consumes us,
leaving nothing, but dust.
We are but pilgrims in this world, awaiting our final destiny from
God.
