Throwback Friday; Dreaming Words, by Ivor Steven

Dreaming Words

A special thanks to, ~M, Her Writing Haven, she’d just posted her first poem written many years ago, a writing full of feeling and emotion. So she’s managed to prompt me to post my first ever poem, from many many years ago, also full of feeling and emotion. Thanks again to, ~M….


I wake up

Dreaming words of you

Falling like the morning dew

You’ve been resting tonight

Under white sheets, out of sight

Once, you were mine to hold

But no more of being bold

And no-one’s at fault

Fate sent you a horrid jolt

I lie here

Dreaming words of you

I hear the flick of your bedside light

And you softly call my name

You smile at me, a sigh, a wave, Hi

Hi, I smile at you and sigh

Tears rolling down from your eyes

I grimace, shielding my eyes

Crying again tonight

The same as last night

Always, I’m here for you

Always dreaming words of you


Ivor Steven (c)  2002



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.

    • Thank you Eugenia, from what I remember, it was a month before I wrote the next poem 💙🌏, and it stayed hidden in my desk for a few years, before I got the courage to show a couple of friends….
