Throwback Friday, Write To Me, by Ivor Steven

A post I published on ‘Go Dog Go Cake’ in the ‘ Throwback Friday’ edition…..

Go Dog Go Café

Write To Me

Write to me, please

All I can do is quietly listen

Listen, to your sweet voice

Soothing my throbbing soul

Write to my swollen eyes

My life is becoming blurry

And my reading’s in over-freeze

Like in the bible’s first Eve

Write to my broken voice

Your’s always sounds like an angel

Gently baptising my ears

And caressing my absent mind

Write to my fallen heart

Mine’s still here to share

Always so true and soft

Like a lover’s morning kiss

Please write to me

And set me free

Ivor Steven (c)  Feb 2020

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. Oh, it’s an old poem, a little difficult to explain…… I suppose during one of those mentally tough times….. the poem is a wishing dream……. Carole’s speech was worse, she couldn’t use her hands anymore, she needing full assistance with every facet of her life…..(I dreaming of her writing me letter)

      1. The connection I feel through nature is where her spirit resides.. the smiles on her were beautiful and rewarding, when she would be sitting outside while I was gardening 😊💙🌏

    1. I understand Sue, it’s part of the caring process, dreaming /wishing for them to back to normal….. even though we know in hearts that’s not going to happen…. 💙🌏😑😐
