Thinking You Were Gone - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Tears falling, I am inconsolable, drenched in sorrow
that filled my being from a dream last night.

Feeling that I've lost you somehow, heart breaking in
two, agony piercing my mind so totally.

Afraid that this is now a reality because it's terrify-
ingly intense and seemingly real.

Praying, calling out to God to please don't let this
be the truth for I cannot live without you my dear.

No pride standing in the way, my heart wants only you,
frantically I run into the morning hoping to find you
awaiting me with open and loving arms.

Moments pass through time, not finding you anywhere,
suddenly succumbing to death, unable to live anymore.

Out of depths of sorrow you call to me so lovingly,
looking up through my tears, seeing you running to
console and soothe my pain that thoughts of losing you
has brought into my mind.

Hugging and kissing, being held so tightly by your arms,
realizing it was only a dream, nothing has happened to
you and we are still together and in love.
