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 ...
Glistening Like Joy
Bereaved, missing you, wondering how to live with this
broken heart, not wanting to pick up it's pieces for
then tears will fall incessantly.
Watching prisms circling, their rainbows of color touch-
ing my mind, glistening like joy that used to be, now
just living a non-existence without you here with me.
