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 ...
Recognizing rhythms from backstreets of melodies, enjoying
their steady beats as they tend to be gentle reminders of
what used to be.
Carefully taking memories into the existence of the present,
fully alive and vibrant, tantalizing this mind and intellect,
joyous freedom and peace filling this being.
Having an unlimited vibrance, never yielding or slowing down
