RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Not Wanting To Leave


Cha cha-ing around the floor, bouncing merrily with
one another.
Seniors staying healthy, limber and agile well into
their later years.
Beaming with good cheer and attitudes, enjoying the
time here with others.
Not wanting to think about leaving and going home
to a lonely, empty home where they will sit between
four walls and have no conversations with anyone.
Just listening, maybe to the television or radio
by themselves.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
