    You are truly a genius RoseAnn in the poetic expression of your thoughts and emotions. I realized that when we first met. It is a wonderful experience of riding with you in your poem. I feel fortunate to have a friend like you, RoseAnn.

    Hi Roseann thanks for the comment on A voice calls, sadly for me the interpretation may take me a long while to work out, sometimes things leave my head before I think about them haha, this one was written sometime ago maybe when I was in my 20s but I have the feeling it was my reference to man turning from God and God retaliating, sounds lofty I know but I'm a much more simple person than what's in my head and I talk to much when I write as you can tell now haha.

    I thought your poem about the 43rd President was meaningful and had a beautiful message of hope.

    really, something hide between your words in every poetry...i like it...because something is a part of everything, so everything is connected to everything else...good...

Best Poem of RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Life's Black Curtains

Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
with sorrow.

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 ...

Read the full of Life's Black Curtains


The sadness is so deep, nothing can soothe it.
Nothing can touch it.
The emptiness is so total - nothing can penetrate it.
All eight of us children and Dad can feel it each on our own.
Yet, even we can't ease the pain for each other.
Nothing has ever felt this way before.
And nothing is all we have to look forward to with Mom gone.
