Patiently, I Am Waiting

Patience drifts around the clock

Patience floats in dry-dock

Patience hovers in transit

Patience belies my spirit

Patiently I walk

Patiently I talk

Patiently I listen

Patiently I have forgiven

Patience is the essence

Patience is my sentence

Patience is my burden

Patience is my warden

Patiently I wait

Patiently I update

Patiently I sleep

And alone I weep

Patiently I Compromise

Patiently I will arise

Patiently I mutate

Patiently I will gravitate

Patience commands my time

Patience is my crime

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. Patience is all of that! And well worth it! Keep being patient! ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS…Eons ago a friend of mine was struggling to be patient with her very demanding children…ages 12, 9, and 8. She told me she was praying for patience. Next thing I knew she told me she was pregnant with an oops-baby! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Seems like praying for patience might not be a good idea! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›
