Bon Voyage Ms Tainia Finlay

What you are about to read will make you smile and frown,
But behold behind the storyline, two friends have just been found!
Was it Fate? Or was it Luck? We will never really know.
So read on dear friend and remember me where ere you may go!

You see I met dear Fin via the internet, oh she was so nice,
So much better than that “Old Ginger Spice”!
And a lot better than that nurse I saw “Old Antoinette”!

Our Lives had gone through a real bad patch, we both lost someone good,
Our lives had changed so much by now we had lost dear ones we loved!
Life is so short, and this we knew, and both fully understood,
Everyday is a bonus, and should be enjoyed, as we found out to the good!

We gained each others trust, we became good friends, but we had never met,
So that’s as far as it goes, with my new friend and I from the Internet!
But things were happening on the internet, it was getting very hot,
For a young Aussie bloke did smite young Fin, and down under she did go!
And I was smitten by a Russian wench, to the eastern country I did flow!

We both came back from our wondering wants, and to arrange to meet we did,
We talked about our foreign trips and gained a lot of knowledge,
For we had lots to tell each other, some things were very good,
And some things were very horrid!

But alas my dear friend you must be gone to Australia you have been called!
Your new life begins this year dear Fin, take it in your stride and enjoy!

I think I will shed tears that day, when you leave old Blighty and Me behind.
So take care Milady, where ere ye go and let fortune smile on you!
You’re the best friend that I could have, and thank you for just being You!
I will always think of you with great affection!
XX Dave (alias Mr “P”) This is not a farewell just a “Bon Voyage!”

This was written for my dear friend Tainia Finlay as she left old Blighty for OZ … most of you know her as Tai … I have had Tai’s permission to show this. So I really want to dedicate this writing to Tai as she is a person that you would all like as a friend, and she is also an Angel because she cares so much about people! I hope you enjoy reading this as I enjoyed writing it!
