Robert's tropical vacation
All packed now and ready to go,
That tropical island awaits.
We need a break more than you know,
It's time to get out of The States.

There won't be computers or phones,
All unplugged from the internet,
Relief from electronic tones,
While we're in the surf getting wet.

Our first night, a luau is planned,
With dancers and festive buffet.
The evening was just simply grand,
On our necks we wore a bright lei.

Tomorrow, our favorite beach.
We'll sit in the sun and relax.
I stretch my legs to try and reach,
the waves, but alas, they retract.

We may have overdone the sun,
For Robert's sunburn is quite red.
I think some shade will be more fun,
Perhaps a walk today instead.

We've just hiked to a waterfall,
Its beauty takes our breath away.
Cascading down, so grand and tall,
Forever here, we'd like to stay.

Next day we're scheduled for a cruise,
To see the island from the sea.
I must say that we were amused,
So many dolphins played with glee.

They circled round, as we sped past,
Jumped in the air, as if to say,
We know your trip here will not last.
We've come to say hello today.

God speed you on your trip back home.
We hope that you return some day,
And next time that you choose to roam,
Please do come back to watch us play.

We left the island with sad heart,
And vowed we would again return.
Forever it will be a part,
Of those fond memories that yearn.
