RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Nashville Awaits Me
Sitting at the senior center writing and listening
to a song given to me by two gentlemen from Nashville
who absolutely love my poetry and want to put it to
music, sending me a contract to sign so they can begin.
Then I ended up in the hospital, having emergency
surgery, ending up in a coma for four and a half days
on life support.
When they found out what I was going through, they
sent me a song entitled, 'You Can Do It', to inspire
me on the road to recovery.
It helped me a lot and I'm still here - better yet,
they still want my poetry to put to music.
