Forget being lonely and saddened by tears,
Forget all that quiet and "I-miss-you" tears,
Forget being worried that you're beyond reach,
Cuz that will all change once you move to the beach.
Your house will soon sprout a new "ALL WELCOME" sign
To beckon folks in just to chat or to dine.
You'll find that you'll sharpen your skills as a host
The day you unpack and move in at the coast.
From far and from near they will drop by to say
How much they have missed you since you moved away.
And bring you such gifts as you ne'er knew before
The day you decide to live down by the shore.
So if you're a friend or some long-lost kin-folk
Just try to remember that this is a joke!
For our house is your house and welcome you'll be
As long as you show us your own Days Inn key! (grin)

Now THAT's my kind of poet, and my kind of Friend. Indeed! Show me your Days Inn key! Loved it! Yes Maam!
"Down by the seashore
with the sand, surf and sea,
That, my dear friend,
is where you'll find me!" Kudos!
