Review Of Life

Since seeing her in Balmoral

Knowing her time was near

I have followed all proceedings

The coffin and the bier

And all four days at Westminster

Comfy in my chair

I have watched the people passing through

In silence mourning her


When I left the priesthood

I had a problem facing me

I could not stop being who I am

Or what I wished to be

A priest no longer – that was true

Now a family man

But with it all I persevered

Still a preacher man


I write for RP homilies

And other Gospel thoughts

In the field of mediation

Brought the Gospel to the fraught

I changed profession – yes it’s true

My life to rearrange

But I still read and preach the Gospel

That will never change
