~Beyond the Modem:My New Sisters of the Heart~

Beyond modem, mouse, keyboard,
and printed words on my screen,
lie the beating hearts of others,
their faces to remain unseen.

As I gently tap the keys,
to spell out my first hello,
I hesitate ever slightly,
before I send to let it go.

I don't even dare to dream
that I can make new friends on-line.
I try to make good conversation here
because nothing is real defined.

I'm slower to trust than normal,
since stabs from the past still sting.
As I gingerly click my way around,
I wonder if I know what I'm doing.

I'm really a nice person,
and a good friend wanna-be,
and sharing my love of words
has simply become a part of me.

I've found this lovely poetry site,
where I can be both a poet and a friend.
Now wishing I had found it sooner,
I love here the time that I spend.

Friend, I want to ask you now,
friend, have you ever really known,
that your warm and caring heart
could melt the coldest snow?

The truth is very simple, my friend;
You have a wonderful heart,
reaching out still to others
when your own world is dark.

God made you for special reasons;
of that don't you ever forget.
Keep living and loving with abandon;
nothing then will you regret.

I thank you too for your love,
my new sisters of the heart.
Wherever God has intervened,
friends cannot be torn apart.

Good morning Karen- This is truly a heartfelt work of thanks. I have to agree, this site has provided me the opportunity to make friends with people who enjoy communicating and sharing via the written word. The fact that it is on-line has one nice feature; you don't need to deal with your nagging insecurities or feelings of social anxiety, If you like people and enjoy writing CP has an ideal way of bringing those barriers down.
Thanks for the smile young lady.
