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 ...
Light Losing It's Way
Light is disappearing in the darkness, losing it's way for a while,
taking time for a while, taking time to express it's loss, wondering
when it will recover.
Waiting for sunrise to appear, bringing a brand new day in which to
find itself once again, longing for the pursuit of longevity some-
time, possibly in the future.
