Throwback Friday, Today Brings Tomorrow, by Ivor Steven

Here is my New Year’s poem from January 2019, and I was convalescing at home recovering from my second stroke … little did I know, I was to going have my third stroke in four weeks time …



Today Brings Tomorrow

A new day has arisen

A new year’s ahead

A new beginning is born


Life may turn for the worse

Below loose rocks and tired verse

Or life could improve to be better

Accruing love letters and joining the jet-setters

I’ve months to grow healthier and stronger

Before my next dream becomes a reality





Ivor Steven (c) January 2019

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 4 years, and writing poems for 20 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
