Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Lone Candle Flame


Mourning stars poking my interior mind,
filling it with tears of grief.
Causing a sadness so deep, life cannot
contain it within it's meager grasp.

Holding on, being guided by a lone candle
flame, lighting the way towards hope.
Bringing faith closer, yet not altogether
close enough to be used in prayer.
