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 ...
Dreams coming alive, giving moments of peace, signs of integrity
unfolding exacerbatingly, touching fringes of this mind.
Trusting in dreams that we made so long ago, finding that all
life has to offer is out of reach for now.
Wanting to hold onto everything that has meant so much through
the years, finding it's being kept in memories only.
