Some Time Now

Anniversaries, they come and they go.

Some time now, since that final May snow.

Anniversaries, they have floated past,

Some time now, I reminisce the last.


Anniversaries, none ever forgotten.

Some time now, since your everlasting smile was taken,

Anniversaries, from coral, to every hue.

Some time now, since our tidal-wave passed through.


Anniversaries, when love grew stronger,

Some time now, since the years became longer,

Anniversaries, a journey of love, suffering and pain.

Some time now, since our river filled with rain.

Your troubles fell with an Autumn leaf.

Forever enshrined within your gracious belief.

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. some time now, its your hearts echo, a remembrance of true love in all the times you spent together, I wish I could open a small door that gave you both a chance to say hello one more time, your words move me, it comes from a beautiful love story.

      1. OH, good! I had you on my mind…but just now getting a chance to sit down and do some WordPressing! πŸ™‚

        I know the anniversaries of a beloved one’s death can be so very difficult…as can be their birthday and your wedding anniversary…even the holidays. 😦

        Keep moving forward. You are not alone. So many people care about you. πŸ™‚
