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.
