Throwback Friday, Some Time Now, by Ivor Steven

Happy 46th Anniversary Carole

Go Dog Go Cafรฉ

A melancholic poem I wrote 10 years ago, and our 46th anniversary day is the 10th of September โ€ฆ

Some Time Now

Todayโ€™s anniversary is foty-six years

A marriage of happy smiles, then sad tears

Our color is bothpurple and sapphire blue

Representing the depth and stability of you

Anniversaries, they come, and they go

Some time now since that final May snow

Anniversaries, my soul does not let them pass

Some time now, I reminisce the last

Anniversaries, none ever forgotten

Some time now since your everlasting smile was taken

Anniversaries, over coral and every colour

Some time now since your tidal wave of valour

Anniversaries, when love grew stronger

Some time now since the years became longer

Anniversaries, covered by, love, suffering and pain

Some time now since our river flooded with rain

Your troubles fell, with an Autumn leaf

Forever enshrined, our promises of belief

Ivorโ€ฆ

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. Such a beautiful tribute to 2 beautiful people on your anniversary!
    I know Carole is smiling right now!
    Anniversaries can be difficult as life marches on and beloved ones pass on…but we must remember the joys, the love, the wonderful memories…and celebrate! I know you treasure her and the precious memories. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. A lovely quote from Bob Dylan, thank you Carolyn โ€ฆ hereโ€™s my new anniversary poem, but itโ€™ll be up at CHW in 10 days time

      โ€œI Wish, I Was Greenโ€

      At 3.00 am, I wish again
      For the harsh sands of time
      To soften, after last nightโ€™s misty rain

      I wish, to learn something new every day
      Sometimes I did not remember what I wished for
      But I know every dawn beholds a new horizon

      I wish, the weathered trees themselves
      Would rekindle my stolen dreams
      And turn them Into a forest of eternal green

      I wish, my every fallen leaf
      To be waiting there
      At the top of my stairs
