There’ll Always Be More

His family, siblings of ten

Then a loving father of four

The king of our den

Always the gentle man at our door

You were our best friend

Now our star forever more

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. A lovely tribute to your dad, is this an anniversary?

    PS. I sorted the other problem. The penny dropped that when you said re-schedule you actually did mean RE-schedule and not just change the date! Thanks anyway 🙂

      1. I thought if Gerry was back online he might overnight write the prompt, so I didn’t put it on the scheduler. This morning my iPad App wouldn’t let me edit from preview or even publish, so I went to the dashboard but it published immediately without allowing me to change anything and backdated to yesterday! I need to get back to WordPress and attempt to get them to sort this. ridiculous App. Thank you Ivor 🙂
