RoseAnn V. Shawiak Poems
Life's Black Curtains
Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
Touched deeply by your life, not wanting to let go,
yet knowing I must.
In my heart forever, indelibly printed on my soul,
etched in memory's mind.
Touched frequently by the tears of your loss, trying
to hold them as tiny reminders of what we used to have.
They disappear, never become tangible so I may keep them
like a treasure of your love.
With love, I will remember you all my life, for you are
a part and parcel of what we had.
Sharing now that you are no longer ...
Watching as your love slowly flows from across the world
and into my lonely life without you here with me, taking
steps in this mind to find a way to come closer.
Wanting to feel your heart beating next to mine, walking
down avenues of natural beauty as we think of one another,
both wanting to reach out and hold each other forever.
An interior energy building even now as we silently talk
