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 ...
Anyone can beat the poverty of this world by stepping up and
doing what they can with what they have, learning how to make
money for oneself can be turned into the help that's needed
to help others who are now living in poverty.
Opening your hearts, showing compassion and stepping out of
your comfort zone to help others is it's greatest reward to
oneself in this temporary world, for the grace and gratitude
of those you help pours blessings upon your life.
