Now Bestowed.

Another poem by request for “Poet Rummager”, I suppose a poem of new found love, but oh so gushy, for a man who was 62 years old at the time, when a cupids arrow sent me into a whirl, like a child’sย  spinning top. I now find the words a little embarrassing, displaying how vulnerable I was then, and probably, I am still now.


You gave me your mountain of love.

You showed me the valley of passion.

You gave me your river of happiness.

You showed me your ocean of kindness.

Who am I to deny you.

How can I resist you.

Now, yearning all of you.

Now, time is you.

You gave me your sunshine for living.

You showed me the moonshines warmth.

You gave me your world of devotion.

You showed me your universe within.

Now, has come again.

Now, I love again.

Now, I’ve arisen.

Now, bestowed.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. And just remember… normal is relative…like logical. Your sense of humor is like your logic. Some are “normal” (straight line thinking), some are pretzel (Me. All over the place, arriving at the finish line like everyone else but just took a zigzag way to get there).

  2. Hi. Your site seems to be playing up,just had 3 likes in a row from you for my poem Now Bestowed, and that you’re just a new follower. Then again, could be my site, in this cyberspace, and I’ve got no idea !!


    1. It’s the macho Aussie thingo, but I’m a loving, cuddly, gushy bloke these days, more embarrassed that the relationship failed,…. after 37 years of marriage, and always the thorough loyalist, I didn’t understand the why’s


    1. Of course go for it, I love my words being used by beautiful people like you xx And It’s funny, like you, every now and then, you know some of your words have been special…… like right now I’m Listening to Joe Cocker singing “With A Little Help From My Friends”
