An Epic Love – A Poem by Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

This is dedicated to my dear friend and brother in poetry,
Ivor.Plumber/Poet. Ivor lost the love of his life Carole a few
years ago after she lost her battle with severe MS for
over 30 years. Ivor was Carole’s primary caregiver during
her illness and most of his poetry has been about her.
Please visit Ivor’s blog at

He misses her so much
His heart feels like it’s breaking
Everything he does
Everywhere he goes
Reminds him of her
He lives in a house of memories
And wonders when his pain will end
So many years together
Caring for each other
Caring for her as her illness worsened
As he sits alone now with his memories
Everything he does
Reminds him of her
So he turns to his writing
And picks up his pen
He knows she is watching
From Heaven above
And the words flow like love notes
From the ink in his pen

      1. I loved this! It’s like you read my mind. When my wife goes to visit her kids in Calif. I look around and think the same thing you wrote about. Would be the same if I was widowed.
        Brilliant post!!


      2. Thanks Chuck. Ivor and I both lost our wives. I first wife of 37 years to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and was her caregiver for the last two years of her life. I know what he’s going through. I was blessed when God sent me another to love.
