In Memoriam ~ Kevin Callaghan CSsR


A friend of mine has passed away

Or should I say ‘has died’

For both of us are northerners

And bluntness is our pride

And he had twice the given lot

Born in Lancashire

But growing up in Bradford

Yes Yorkshire I fear

 

Straightforward in his talking

But thoughtful with it all

A quiet man in many ways

Reliable and all

A big man in appearance

A man of solid frame

And solid in his judgements

Always played the game

 

Quite a judge of character

He kept his powder dry

Treated people fairly

His comments could be wry

Asked me to assist him

When Province was his rule

I learned a lot from Kevin

A man who kept his cool
