Where’s That Dream

Hello dear readers, I suppose it wouldn’t be a two year WP celebration for Ivor !! without a re-post of my old classic poem, “Where’s That Dream”. I wrote this poem seven years ago, and I’ll try a new song, a different picture …… and a new dream…….

Where’s That Dream


I’ve seen the universe, through to the stars beyond.

There’s a deep darkness, she’s gone, she’s gone.

I saw her smile, crack from the pain.

There was a sorrow, she caught it tomorrow.


I’ve seen the moon, through the burning sun.

Where’s that planet, she’s walking on.

I saw her eyes, crying tears of sand.

Where’s that beach, she’s lying on.


I’ve seen the ocean, through the broken coral.

Where’s that ship, she’s sailing on

I saw her body, serene and frail.

Where the ashes, she’s covered in.


I’ve seen the earth open up, swallowing the multitude whole.

Where’s that chasm, she’s falling through.

I saw her gentle soul, disappear out of sight.

Where’s that secret heaven, she’s flying to.


I’ve seen the land, go through violent storms.

Where’s the winds of time, she’s spread upon.

I saw her heart, her love, for all of you, and I.

Where’s that dream, she’s left us to find.

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. This is one of the most beautiful poems I’ve ever read in wordpress. And as I know who the special “She” is for whom you’ve written a good number of poems, it makes it more beautiful and emotional to. God bless you and your loved once.

    1. Hi Sue, not sure why I posted this today, but I suppose it was my dad’s birthday, yesterday, and he would’ve been 94, my dad and my Carole were absolutely besties for each other, and I’m potting a couple of new plants, a Lip Balm Monardo Didyma, and it has a lovely purple flower 🌸, and purple was Carole’s fav colour. 😊 😊 the other is a Garlic Chives, an interesting herb, for soups sauces and salads xx

      1. Birthdays, anniversaries and such are simple reminders of happy times with the family we loved, guaranteed to bring out the odd smile and maybe a tear or two. I like the sound of your therapeutic plant potting.

        Have you still got the sunshine? We have snow this morning and I’m told, ice under foot.

    1. Thanks Calen, I wrote it not long after Carole passed, and I was experiencing lots of dreams, very similar to the poem. I’m for you to have a few tears, I cried buckets when I wrote it, and even now when I read it…xxx
