Throwback Friday, Singing a Song For You, by Ivor Steven


Hi dear readers, this poem was published in the Geelong Writers Poetry Anthology 2018. Another of my old favourites that I originally wrote in 2012.


Singing A Song For You


My old record turntable’s on

The Band’s playing our song

Music’s quietly echoing our beat

Ballads of love humming so sweet

Cannot remember the last time I sang for you

Sat down together and talked life through

Soft and sad words, like hymns in tune

Strumming on an angels harp under the moon

Singing our lyrics of eternal love, so true

It’s so long since celestial sounds covered you

Years ago when our love was new

Laying upon fresh grass and morning dew

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.
