A Tribute to Dr. Barrington Clarke-The People’s Doctor and My Friend
by Michael Heslop
Sadness runs like a river for us knowing that Barry is gone from us,
Our sadness for Barry’s loss is frozen in time and grief,
Sadness strangles our happiness for his loss,
There is no news that is good for us now that Barry is gone,
Darkness has consumed our lives for his passing,
There is no more sun to smile at us as Barry’s smiling face is gone from us,
So our faces are sad and tired with tears,
There is pain eating away at our hearts in his absence,
Our minds are shattered with grief because Barry is gone from us,
How can we go on with so much pain for his loss?
How can we live with so much loss?
How do we make sense of Barry’s immeasurable loss to his family, to his friends and the people he served?
What is the meaning of us when Barry is gone away from us?
There is no peace for us now with Barry’s sudden departure from us,
There is only torment for us without Barry that is frozen in agony and shock,
Above all else,
Barry, a silent servant of those with diminishing chances, has gone much too soon,
Our memories of you dear friend are forever brightly etched in our minds and hearts until our dying days,
There is only love and admiration for your simplicity, kindness and devotion for the lives you touched dear friend then, now and forever,
Farewell, dear friend until we meet again!
