The true friends we meet online

are a very special kind...

They pierce your shields and see

within the corners of your mind...

They're always there when your in

need with their power to discern...

They feel your pain, they offer

hope and genuine concern...

We bare our souls, expose our hearts

and show our inner fears,

and then before you know it

the keyboards stained with tears...

And if we could see them through

that screen then no one could

deny that to be a true online friend

they too should surely cry...

I have a little group of friends,

As dear as they can be.

I love them all, but sad to say,

Most I'll never get to see.

The only claim I have is that...

When I feel sad, alone or blue,

I get online, play wav's and chat.

And maybe find someone who feels it too.

They give love and support,

Opinions and such,

Which I can take or ponder much,

But sometimes I round a bend and Lo!!

I'll make a brand new Friend.

Feel bad, or sad? Just plain sick?

Got an attitude or habit you want to kick?

"It's ok", your friends will say,

"We've all been there before,

A time or two, just like you".

We know the ups, and downs,

The highs, the lows,

The "I-could-kill-that-so-n-so's".

The pain and strain, of getting through

The leave-takings without adieu.

We've seen it all,

The been-theres, done-thats,

We've worn all the different hats,

That makes us each uniquely "us".

And when we want to make a fuss,

We come online and find the equalizers,

The Friends, who become our sympathizers,

Who know, and feel and wish,

There is nothing more to say...

But will say it anyway.
