written by: Ivor Steven


I went left, instead of right
No matter what direction
Or decision I choose
At the end of day
There will be night
My time to rest
And remain out of sight

I shall take the back roads
Miles away from my troubled life
Miles and miles
Beyond those evil eyes of strife

I will sleep under the stars
With my loyal companion
By my side

He gives me that inquisitive stare
β€œDon’t look at me like that
I know mate, I know
I should never have left the wife”

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.
