The Pope Has Resigned!

A shepherd feels unwell and rests ahead
Of being called for rest eternally!
His decision is wise and not misled;
His illness is to blame for this solely!

The world's embroiled in problems big, galore;
A few resigned in this great legacy;
To life of prayer longs the pope's heart's core;
He wants a healthier man in papacy!

As cardinal, he'd served for many years!
As pope, he took on relativism;
His mind is clear and has no other fears!
His life in Christ was strong since Baptism.

The modern world needs strong a pope anew;
Spiritual wars unfinished still remain;
The earth looks sinful, hazy in God's view;
The grace of heaven must come down as rain!

A soldier left the field to follow Christ;
The German Benedikt is eighty-five!
As theologian, cardinal and priest,
For more than sixty years, he was shepherd.

He played a signal role on papal stage,
He now resigned due to ill-health and age!
For years, he stole the limelight as seer, sage;
He leaves the stage with many wars to wage!

His papacy was good until last day;
For pope to have a healthy life, let's pray;
While there was sun, he had made enough hay,
With life of humility, come what may!
HE LEAVES BEHIND A PIOUS, GLORIOUS PAST!
LONG LIVE PAPACY!
