Salvation Sunday (a Birthday poem for Kylie)

My Faerie writing book and the words I was penciling today

Salvation Sunday (a Birthday poem for Kylie)

A lazy Sunday afternoon

We are both resting

Frankie is napping/snoring

As usual he lets me share the bed

I am penciling these words

Into my Faerie writing book

A well used birthday gift

From my adorable niece Kerri

She lives in Philadelphia

Here I am in Geelong

We are worlds apart

But joined at the heart

We were chatting earlier

The time difference still confuses me

Yesterday was her niece’s birthday

Kylie is now fourteen

Wow, time flies, she was only ten

When I last saw her

Happy birthday dear Kylie

I miss your gorgeous smile

Hey! I miss all you guys

Cheers from uncle Ivor

Hugs and kisses to everyone

Over there in Philadelphia

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. I love the sun Strumbellas too … I just happened to be listening to them in the afternoon and the β€œSalvation” song 🎢 came on … and I immediately thought what a great birthday song for my little poem I was writing πŸŽΆπŸ€—βœοΈ
