In honour of Dr Barry Furr OBE

Greatness never sleeps, it only rests firmly
Shouldered by those that step from the shadow.
Life can be lived in the wilderness
Or celebrated in the creation of joy.

Lives beyond the ordinary inspire greatness
In the humanity of those shaped in the legacy.
Holding true to a wisdom, shared,
Predestines strength to shape anew.

Our journey beyond greatness is seen
When passionate care shapes new horizons:
Nobility is the true prize shared
When shaping the health of many.
