I sadly only found the drives,
Six short months ago,
But I fell in love with everything,
I even watched the grass grow.
It wasn’t hard to get attached,
To the animals & the bush
As soon as I woke up each day,
My computer buttons I would push.
To catch a glimpse of, gee who know,
Maybe a Lion or an impala,
A zebra or a tall giraffe,
A rhino or a nyala,
Each day was an adventure,
Never knowing what we would see,
From hippos laying by the dam,
To a leopard up a tree.
And while seeing these amazing things,
That sometimes felt like a dream,
I got to know the three presenters,
And fell in love with the whole team.
There’s Marc, the elephant whisperer,
So knowledgeable and wise,
A gentleman that loves the bush,
You can see it in his eyes.
Then there’s Tara, dung professor,
Sounds funny but its true,
I never knew you could tell so much,
About an animal from its poo.
Then of course we come to Seb,
Our cameraman turned host,
He has a soft spot for the hyenas,
And its teddy he loves most.
I’m going to miss the African bush,
And all I was able to see,
But feel absolutely privileged
And I know that not just me.
So many people have watched the drives,
Some longer than I have been able,
And I know we are all feeling,
Like our days are now unstable.
What will we do with our spare time,
Now there are no more drives,
I guess somehow we must go on,
And continue in our lives.
But I will not say goodbye,
To friends I’ve made along the way,
The drives may sadly be over,
But the friendships are here to stay.
I thank you Marc, Tara & Seb,
For teaching me new things,
And I wish you luck & happiness,
In whatever it is life brings.
So after all is said and done,
What I really want to say,
Is thank you all so very much,
In each and every way.
