Into Your Eyes

Poem By Debbie 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.

Hi poet Debbie. This happens so much and it is so sad, so sad. I enjoyed this heart touching poem. Loyd
Sweet but sorrowful memories, when we lack someone, producing feelings that create such beautiful poems.
A really nice poem with very good rhyme and at the same time..question, the last line is awesome!
She's there, I hear her in your poem. Nice write Debbie.

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,

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.

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.
