This Is Goodbye - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Steps being taken towards heaven, walking through an
empty life, tears in my eyes, knowing that this is
goodbye.

This time in life is coming to an end and cannot con-
tinue, knowing that we've done the best that we could,
loving, cherishing and treasuring one another.

Now there's only emptiness coming upon us as death nears
our bed where we lie loving each other, holding onto our
love forever.

Slipping now into unconsciousness, leaving you behind
my love, unknowingly stepping into heaven without you,
unable to stop death from taking me from you.

    A very intense write foreseeing the end of life in front, where one has to leave alone and no one nearer or dearer will remain along. But our mortal life is so awkwardly constituted that like or not day we all have to say Goodbye. (Report) Reply
