Biography of Debbie Ward Casey

Debbie Ward Casey poet

I am a widow with two wonderful boys, Joshua and Jacob. I lost my husband, Mike, the love of my life, on December 13,2002 to suicide. He battled a bipolar disorder most of his life.
In his suicide letter he left me, the one thing that stood out, was that he wrote; 'I am just so tired'.

I had 22 wonderful and troubled years with Mike. He was not only a wonderful husband and father, he was also my best friend.

Life for all of us has been hard, but we are trying to come to terms with our new life and be able to move on.

Writing my thoughts, pain, fears, etc.. down seems to help me deal with issues I am having a hard time overcoming. Educating others about Bipolar disorders and suicide prevention, as well as helping others who are survivors of suicide, also helps to soothe the wounds.

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.
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.
