All From A Snap Shot

Poem By Debbie Casey

She sits there quietly; trying to focus, through her tear filled eyes.
Memories through photography;
Looking at dreams that came true;
All from a snap shot, of her and you.

She sits there confused; trapped in the past; but reaching for the future.
Your eyes pierce her heart, she can’t breathe;
She is drowning in her own grief;
All from a snap shot, of painful memories.

She sits there sadly; knowing she must let you go, her heart’s broken.
Looking at the picture, filled with love;
A love so pure, a gift from above;
All from a snap shot, she feels your love.

She sits there hoping; yet knowing, true love can never come twice.
The picture she holds, against her heart;
That life is gone, a new life to start;
All from a snap shot, it is time to part.

Comments about All From A Snap Shot

I kinda miss the old ways of capturing Kodak moments...anticipating the film to develop, those images to be held in your hands, frozen forever in time...Now photos are shared through social media...I like mine framed as they were prior to snap chat, Facebook, Twitter, and I phones. Your poem was a beautiful reminder of a picture being worth a thousand words. PEACE
Hello poet Debbie. A very wonderful, yet sad romantic poem. Well done, I enjoyed, Loyd

Into Your Eyes

The eyes staring back at me are filled with so much pain.
Eyes filled with sadness, overflowing, forming rivers as tears drain.

The eyes staring back at me are so consumed with fear.

A Loved One Lost

The loss of a loved one is a hard thing to face,
The world speeds past, you can’t keep up the pace.

The minutes blur to hours and then into days,

Both Sides Of Suicide

Twas the night before the death of a very sad man,
He was sitting all alone and would not stand.
All hope he had lost and he just didn't care,
The misery consumed him as he sat there.

My Precious Charlie

I never held you in my arms
or sang a lullaby...
But, you are part of my heart
it aches as I cry...

Alone In The Dark

The darkness consumes me, this emptiness I can't withstand.
Jesus, can you see me? I'm reaching for your hand.

”Child, I never left you, beside you I AM.
