During a beautiful celebration

At the cathedral

Where community was tangible

I realised that

I am held

In the arms

Of so many different people

That love and support me


Primarily, my darling wife,

Soul mate

My everything.

Also, my sons,

My mother,

My siblings,

And extended family

Including my in-laws


The list includes

My friends

Some of whom I’m lucky

To have had in my life

For many years

My colleagues

And former colleagues


And former students


Around and under and over


Is our faith.

God IS our relationships

And so much more

As our finite words

Cannot describe the infinite.


This community of support is

The body of Christ

Which brings me

To eternal life.


Salvation is now
