Words For You

A poem from before my Tullawalla booklets, before I began my blog/website, before I had a computer, before I had a typewriter, and when I wrote my words with a 2HB pencil into a blue line exercise book. I do not have an exact date for the poem, but the piece was probably written during early 2003.

Words for You

A book of words for you

From me

Perhaps not all that true

May be?

They could bring you smile

You’ll see

Some sorrow for a while

That’s me

Dreams and thoughts of you

The inner me

From my mind, it’s what I do

You’ll see

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.
