Another New Poem by Bertified Fan Sheri Bridges
BERT CRUISE #3 (Jan 30-Feb 6, 2011)
January 30, 2011, was a long awaited Sunday,
when we entered the portals of the great ship Ruby.
We were finally back at sea with our Bert with an E;
not just friends, but almost kin and family.
It has been a long time for many, to be away,
but this week has been full of answered prayers we all prayed.
Packets were ready with Linda's best wishes and love, as she looked like an angel,
ready to soar like a dove.
The sail away was fun with music and friends, within the next six days,
the excitement would never end.
Bert had his hoodie which encircled his head like a wreath,
his cute little face shining through with all those pearly white teeth.
It appeared quite amazing to non-Bert fan club passengers, at picture time,
to see the Rowdy hats of the fan club which were mighty fine.
If ever we see Bert and it seems that he pouts,
we know someone has told him to eat his brussel sprouts.
This we learned from Facebook as Bert occasionally wrote,
a brief message to update us, when he was or was not on a boat.
We might ask, "Bert, did you remember your place in the parking garage?" Bert replies,
"I think I see my car, but oh no, it is just a mirage."
Also, your daughter was on the phone with you and said she was putting in ' Home Alone',
you thought that was very strange because you heard 'provolone'.
Twofers, fever pitch, Rowdy hats and hugs, have been the sayings for this week,
and Bert has fulfilled them all as he brought us to our peek.
A great time was had by all with big smiles from every cheek,
somewhat sad that it is over, but great memories from a good week.
Anytime, anywhere, anyplace, we don't care,
if you need us for anything, we surely will be there.
Bert, your gift of entertainment is so special to us,
we want to say thank you, without a lot of fuss.
When you introduced Derek, your eyes started to swell with tears,
because you are very proud of the fact, you have been dad for all of his years.
It is too hard to say good-bye so to you we will tell,
until we meet again, a fond farewell.
