Back in 2000 Robert and his wife were living in the UK with their 3 year old son, Sam.
At the time Sam was a massive fan of the Teletubbies so Robert had the perfect surprise for him.
Sam has just turned 20 so Robert has written a poem for him.
Sam you have turned 20
The apple of our eyes
Two decades since that trip to Fiji
And we came back with you, a surprise.
You’ve made us proud through the years
Gaming, you are astute in
And just like me, with blonde blonde hair
You cannot eat the Gluten.
So now you study broadcasting
At Uni, AUT
For job in the Tele or print
Or radio like me.
But then there was the time when you were little
And thought it was such a score
When a giant Teletubbie came up the path
And started knocking on your door…
Yes it was me, dressed as Po
A Tubby , you said ‘Yay’
Little did I know, that I’d be wearing
that big red suit all day.
So 20 years on, you are a man...
You stand out from the crowd
And I know that your Nan, who is no longer with us
Is smiling down, and proud...
