Throwback Friday, Haven’t Seen You For a While, by Ivor Steven

If you wish to purchase a copy of my book “Tullawalla”, the links below will help ..

Please Note“.. do not purchase the Hardcover book from Barnes & Noble .. they have meesed it up again

Tullawalla is Available at Amazon (Paperback), https://www.amazon.com/Tullawalla-Ivor-Steven/dp/B099H47PWQ/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Tullawalla&qid=1629428327&sr=8-1

Today I am presenting a poem, that didn’t make the final list, and was ‘cut’ from my new Book “Tullawalla”… Although I am not sure why I did not include “Haven’t Seen You for a While” in the book. ‘The poem was one that I placed in Carole’s funeral pamphlet’ (9 years ago)….



Haven’t Seen You for A While



Woke up dreaming of your petite smile

And pondering, I haven’t seen you for a while

That gentle smile making you so cute

So pleasing and alluring seems to suit

Dreaming of your grace and gorgeous style

And thinking, I haven’t seen you for a while

The glow on your face, reminiscing sweet things

A silky-smooth body with all it’s offerings

Dreaming of your thighs, where the harp sings

And sensing, I haven’t seen you for a while

The sweat of our loving a distant past

“Twas pure lust, sharing to the last

Dreaming of your love and more tender scenes

And realizing, I haven’t seen you for a while






Ivor Steven (c) March 2012

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
