Before You Leave The Table

 

Today

Before you leave the table

Lean forward, reach out

Tenderly hold her hand

Feel her warmth

And the pulse of her heart

Soak up that sensation

Treat every close moment

Like it was last your last

Do not wait for tomorrow

 

Today

Before you leave the table

Gently say, how much you love her

Listen to her sweet response

Place your ear, on her chest

And hear the beat of her heart

Drumming a crescendo of love

Treat her song of togetherness

Like an angel’s last tune

Do not wait for tomorrow

 

Tonight

Before you leave the table

Stand close to her

Fondly look into her eyes

Those mirrors of passion for you

And see the depths of her heart

Swimming in her joyous tears

Treat these emotional nights

Like the embrace was your last

Do not wait for tomorrow

 

One day, there will be a time

When her today’s heart

Will not be beating tomorrow

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.
