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 ...
Succulent cacti right outside the door, filled with
rain water from the last storm that we had in Phoenix.
Beautiful, plump, blossoms decorating them in colors
of red, yellow and purple.
Desert cacti challenging colors of rainbows in the
sky, arches of beauty cradling the sky upside down.
