Cally Robson – A Tribute
Tony Henderson celebrates the life of our friend Cally:
For my friend and fellow OTMFN board member Cally Robson who tragically died of cancer on Tuesday 19 May.
The Invisible Force
The Invisible Force that beset you
That you fought and you never gave in
Has lifted you up from beside us
Though your presence remains here and within.
We know you so well as our teacher
Our coach, our parent, our friend.
We’ll have to write it all down now
To which address can we now send?
It’s not questions that really need answers
But your voice that speaks in our ears
It tells us to lay aside mourning
And rejoice as if you were here.
So creative with passion and humour
You rode life’s triumphs and pain
The Visible Force of your person
Still here and shall always remain.
