Are You There?

Poem By Debbie Ward Casey

Are you there?
Do you still care?
On my knees again, in prayer...

I still need you,
I can't go on without you,
But, I'm finding it hard to feel you.

Please don't leave me!

Did I fail you as your friend?
Did I fail you as your wife?
Was it because of me, you took your own life?

Are you there?
Do you even care?
On my knees again, in prayer...

I loved you,
How do I go on without you?
I'm finding it hard to feel you.

Please stay with me?

You where my best friend.
You where a wonderful husband.
Why did you go? Why did you take your life?

Are you there?
Why didn't you care?
On my knees again, in prayer...

I will always love you,
But, I must go on without you,
My prayer is to only feel you.

Your memory will always be with me.

Rest in peace, my friend,
Rest in peace, my love.

The Time Has Come

It is impossible to believe, all I have is your memory.

Every thought of you brings loneliness,
Every prayer seems hopeless,

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.

If You Had Known

Can you look into my eyes?
Can you hear my voice?
Can you feel my heart beating?

My Safe Place

Will I ever have to leave my safe place?
Safe, secure, it's warmth I embrace.

Comforting, the love I feel.....

All From A Snap Shot

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.
