Into Your Eyes

Poem By Debbie Ward Casey

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.
Eyes filled with darkness, overcome, magnified through all the tears.

Where is the spark that was once there?
Eyes filled with joy, contagious, helping others, full of care.

Where is the faith I use to see?
Eyes filled with strength, never wavering, always at peace.

Will I ever see the person you use to be?
As I back away from the mirror, the eyes staring back belong to me.

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,

Are You There?

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

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.
