Throwback Friday, Beyond His Time Here, by Ivor Steven

Today’s poem is from September 2018, and I have slightly revised some lines for this post.



Beyond His Time Here (Revised)


words written, during her silent years

dazed and unclear

words written, out of sheer fear

often drowning in tears

words written, softly severe

in everlasting revere


words written, for everyone to hear

reaching a new frontier

words written, clouds beginning to clear

love lingers, far and near

words written, needing someone to steer

this lost buccaneer

beyond his time here

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
