Possibly you are thinking of the "Le Passé Proche" using venir de + infinitive e.g. 

"Je viens de finir mon livre" - "I've just finished my book"

It's explained here:

Expressing the close past in French using "venir de" + [infinitive] (Le Passé Proche)

Hi Alison,

Do you mean:"Viens ici!" ("Come here!")

which is the imperative form of venir?

'Vient' means 'come'. 'Vient de' means 'have just come'. In the latter case you must follow 'have just come' by the infinitive.
