Remembrance Colours

Time bygone, This Lost Shadow

Words written, your May Day

Timed out at one-fifteen

An afternoon, vividly clear

Words written, a tragic play

Remembering my Gracious Lady


A Midday Sun, you were gold

Words of moonlight, and silver too

Words under stars, celestial and bold

Words upon oceans, purples and blue

Words on fire, Smouldering beams

Words Rain In May, your favourite green

Words cry tears, Liquid Joy and mellow

Words an eternal vault, In My Mind


Words of sorrow and tomorrow

Words of love, you were my dove

Life’s colours, you were every hue

A life story, coloured and true


The words in Italic, are all referring to poems of mine that have appeared on my blog site here since I started on June 7th 2017,

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. Thanks Stella, apart from being sore all over from working under a house for two days, I’m actually feeling ok, the best I’ve felt for a month, the anxiety is reasonably low ☺️

  1. Being a recent devotee of your poetry, I went back to each post on the list. I wanted to gain some insight on today’s beautiful poem. There is so much of your inner self displayed in these poetic pieces…the devotion and love, the heartache and the happiness too. My mind is drawn to these words of T. Tolis : “To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that’s everything.”

      1. Not praise, but truth. The love that Carole and you still share is everything each hopes for, yet, are not always fortunate enough to experience.

      2. Thank you ❤️, I suppose that’s why I keep writing, I keep trying to express what’s inside my heart, and I’ve yet to find the perfect words to explain how amazingly beautiful and courageous she was and how our bond of love survived the worst storms imaginable. 😊
