Biography of Debbie Ward Casey
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.
Debbie Ward Casey Poems
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...
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.
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.
My Safe Place
Will I ever have to leave my safe place? Safe, secure, it's warmth I embrace. Comforting, the love I feel.....
If You Had Known
Can you look into my eyes? Can you hear my voice? Can you feel my heart beating?
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.
My Safe Place
Will I ever have to leave my safe place?
Safe, secure, it's warmth I embrace.
Comforting, the love I feel.....
I never want to leave my safe place.
In my Mother's womb; I find comfort, peace, and solace.
It's all I have ever known.....
