Remembering our mates in heaven

Police Ode
As the sun surely sets:
dawn will see it arise,
for service, above self,
demands its own prize.

You have fought the good fight:
life’s race has been run,
and peace, your reward,
for eternity begun.
And we that are left,
shall never forget,
rest in peace friend and colleague,
for the sun has now set.
We will remember.
We will remember.
Hasten the dawn.

Police Ode written in 1995 by WA Police Chaplain Barry May
