HCC in Memoriam

Long after the uncertainties began

I still went to church with you.

It seemed there was nothing else to do

and anyway there was love.

Stumbling hesitatingly through the Creed

one day I heard you say

"- in so far as it can be believed "

and my heart lept

letting go all fears of losing love,

thrilling me with the vast courage

of that great doubt

I sang the hymns so high

into the rafters I think

the tiles moved.
