“HERE HE COMES!” a poem, a.k.a.: “No Place Like Gone!” in the series: “Life Can Be Pretty Sad Sometimes!” written and posted on: August 19, 2019 (Monday)
“Hi, Alicia! Hi, Trey!
Look! Another – glorious day?!”
I see them in-The-Lobby,*
As I’m-doing a-favorite hobby,
Making origami – for-Sidney, my Friend,**
Sitting in the easy chair! You know? I tend,
To be here in the morning time,
And, while-waiting-for-Sidney, I-wrote- this-rhyme,
About WAITING FOR SIDNEY! (He walks out through THAT door!)
He is – right on schedule – going across THAT floor!
“Hi, there Sidney! How-is-it-going?”
And there’s Sidney – with a “cheeky” smile a-showing.
He’s one-of-the greatest guys I’ve ever really known!
HERE COMES SIDNEY! I’ve never heard him moan,
‘Cause he’s an example – for-us-all-to-see,
Of HAPPINESS! and KINDNESS and, especially, HAR MONY!
And He ALWAYS comes through with a jaunty step!
“I love you, man!” “I love your pep!”

** – “Out of the blue” one day, my Friend Sidney, the chief maintenance man at The Holland Hotel, has his picture in The Obituary Section of the local paper The Alpine Avalanche!! I read that he was suffering with terminal cancer for nearly the last two years! Dang! but I STILL always see him here, in The Holland Hotel Lobby, whenever I go sit, to drink a little water and fashion a piece of origami or write a little poem! Heaven knows I miss him! Even though, I STILL see him walk through every day I go and sit! There are some tears in Heaven for a wonderful guy! My tears! for Sidney Jacobs!
