Brave Heart (Revised)

“In the confusion we stay with each other, happy to be together, speaking without uttering a single word.” –
Walt Whitman

Brave Heart

I always remember

The last time I saw the sun

I always remember

The last time I saw you run

Yesterday I remembered

The colour of your eyes

Yesterday I remembered

The colour of our brilliant sky

Today I remembered

The happiness in your smile

Today I remembered

The happiness of our every mile

Tomorrow I will remember

The final beat of your brave heart

Tomorrow I will remember

The unread pages of our lost charts

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. Yes, I was reminiscing, There’ll those be times, the thoughts come, and the words flow out and they become these poems….. I feel satisfied and comfortable about writing about Carole….I’m positive, and it’s a pleasant process for my heart……

    1. For no reason, I was reminiscing, thoughts enter my head, words pour out from the heart, and these poems are written, from time to time, as “my empty hand are full
      Of memories and rhymes”


    1. Every now and then, I have these bouts of memories. I have a head full of thoughts, they pour out of my head, words flow from my heart, my pencil writes, and these emotional poems appear on my note book. In the end I smile to myself, and feel comfortable and pleased with the outcome, and process seems good for my soul…

    1. That’s kind of you to say so…. It’s indeed all that, a powerfully emotional poem (I cried as I wrote) and gentle and loving at the same time, I think my every word conveyed the feelings in a concise form with very few words …….. xxx


      1. My emotions flow clearly nowadays, and without complications, and I think it’s showing in my writings
        I’m seeing life differently, I see my recovery from stroke, as a blessing, and my trip to Philadelphia was a life enhancing experience for me..
