Singing A Song For You


The Banjo’s playing our song

Old Buskers are singing along

Music’s quietly echoing our beat

Ballads of love humming so sweet

Cannot remember the last time I sang for you

Sat down together and talked life through

Soft and sad words, like hymns in tune

Strumming on an angels harp at high noon

Singing our lyrics of eternal love so true

It’s so long since celestial sounds covered you

Years ago when our love was new

Laying upon fresh grass and morning dew

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 of them have taken a lot of persistence to get published, and I’m ecstatic to finally have some of my favourite poems published, I so always believed they were good enough.


    1. Oh it’s just easier for me, here by myself, and I’ve a few hospital appointments this week, and they’ll wear me out, xxx, And yes the poem is another favourite of mine, probably originally written 6 years ago…….
