Words Of Mine, Epilogue(Revised Post)

As many of my readers would know, over the pass few weeks, I’ve been proof-reading and editing my manuscript, and with the help of a Geelong Writers friend (Claudia), her assistance has been magnificently diligent, and yesterday we finally completed our task…. and my poem here “Words of Mine” is to be the Epilogue for my book..


Here’s a link to a song that was written for me from ‘My Words’, by my musician friend, Terry Fielding… I hope the link works for you (let me know please)

And again, the Soundcloud song below my poem, was written for me by a musician friend from France, Haille Anderson.

Words of Mine

I’ve given you my humble words

I’ve given you my hidden soul

Words trickling through cool mountain streams

Words dripping off the frozen ashen trees

Words gliding across the icy lakes

Words of love, drowning in the memory rains

I’ve given you my inner self

I’ve given you my outer grief

Words tumbling over the embedded rocks

Words twisting along the winding rivers

Words cascading down the forest waterways

Words sifting through my barren hands

I’ve given you my lonely heart

I’ve given you my secret loves

Words of life living under the vast oceans

Words of time travelling to the stars beyond

Words flowing through happiness and sorrow

Words of mine, destiny’s dreams of tomorrow

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. Thank you Carolyn, I’m so pleased you like this poem as my Epilogue choice… It’s one I wrote not long after I had started blogging here on WP… and at that stage I was totally overcome by the number of wonderful heartfelt comments my readers were sending to me…. and I had an overwhelming feeling of warmth within me, and I wrote this poem in response to the kindness that my readers have given me…. and I thought what a truly gorgeous piece to have as my ‘Epilogue’, and to summarise the writings in my book….
      and I’m at a loss for words to explain what your support and encouragement has meant to me over these 3 years of self discovery and self belief in my humble writings, that come from my heart… love you to the top of Mount Kosciuszko and back… 💙🌏
