Throwback Friday, Across the Hallway, by Ivor Steven

Here on Throwback Friday I’m presenting a poem I wrote two years ago, when I was having a day of reminiscing about days gone by…. and as part of my ongoing healing process, writing a poem about what I was recalling, has definitely been good therapy for myself….

Across the Hallway

Sunday morning bliss 

A memory, a wish 

Confirmation, of a promise 

A togetherness kiss 

My tears do dwell 

I was under her spell 

There’s no need for show and tell 

You know my heart well


There’s a memory lane 

Within my sighing veins 

Pumping slowly, flowing deep 

A river of dreams that never sleep 

Visions of a begone life 

A joyful husband and wife 

The glory days are gone 

Happily, I’ve begun to move on 

And remember with fondness 

Our first, and last kiss

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. View all posts by ivor20
