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 ...
Icy Points Of View
Wintery thoughts, cold as ice, like icicles poking me
with their icy points of view.
Sun shining high in the sky, melting the ice and is
now slowly dripping onto the snow-covered ground.
Shimmering in sunlight, looking like diamonds waiting
to be picked up and placed in a ring or necklace for
someone's first love.
