    This is a poem I found that I thought was real nice and I wanted to share it with my friends here :D

    Someone asked me once
    about people online
    Don't I find it silly
    to call them friends of mine?

    I pondered the thought
    for a little while
    and slung them a story
    with a huge smile

    I wake up in the morning
    I'll tell you what I do
    I race to my computer
    to check my mail, it's true!

    I open each and everyone
    and reply with tender care
    maybe just a a line or two
    to let them know I'm there!

    I have seen strange things
    been so many places
    Have even seen a few
    of their online faces!

    It doesn't matter to me
    that they are far away
    Meeting them has surely
    brightened up my day! !

    We've shared a morning coffee
    and at times we've shed a tear
    We've been there for each other
    even played cards and drank a beer!

    They are just as real to me
    as you are standing there
    They are always here for me
    with lots of love and care

    One thing online has taught me
    something I'll never forget
    There's a lot of great people
    out there on the net!

    "How can you be friends with
    someone you've never met?"
    I'll smile and tell them
    "You've never been online I bet!"

    So you can call me silly
    if that's what you want to do-
    But I care for them every bit
    as much as I care for you!

    That is very true, people thay don't get on the internet just can't realize how deep of a friendship can develope between people that have never met. ;)

    Online friends come with all the newest features and benefit - without the conflicting interface 'reality' often has. Very nice poem.

    Perfect Rita ;) Even people meeting on the internet and hooking up for life is still looked at as weird by others :rolleyes: Shallow minds I guess. The internet has given me some of my best friends who I feel I can tell anything without being judged, What a wonderful world :D :D :D

    That is beauitful!! Rita! And so true~

    I thought last fall, you all were a bunch of weirdos!!

    And I don't know how many times I told Steve you all were fake.

    Jokes on me, huh? I have recieved nothing but love and acceptance here.






    I have made some of the best friends!! If I'm ever bored or lonely.....I know I can always come here with all my wonderful friends and family. I'm blown away when I look at the huge world map on the wall.....and see all the tacks and pictures that represent this awesome family that I'm soooooooo grateful to be a part of.









    Thanks Guys!!! & Gals!!!

    Here's another......


    Screen Friends



    I've had one of those days
    you know what I mean
    so I sit back and relax
    and turn on my screen.

    I'll talk to all my friends
    who know just what to say
    to make my stresses go
    and my troubles fade away.

    My friends you're always there for me
    whenever I feel blue
    and though we've never met before
    I know our friendships true.

    And although we haven't been friends for long
    in this short time it seems
    we shared so many things already

    our hopes, our fears, our dreams.

    We come from different walks of life
    but we share a common bond
    and it's time to say that of all of you
    I've grown so very fond.

    So thank you friends for being there
    whenever I've needed you
    I know you're always there for me
    and you know I'm there for you.

    Well....if CB ever decides to marry me...he'll have to move.

    I'm not going to live in or on his flat, with nothing to hold on to, planet earth.

    Open, wide spaces scare me ~ I'm agoraphobic, lol.

    Thank-You so much for the wonderful poem Rita. It rings so true. I have been online around 8 years. I was never into chat lines. Wilders is the first forum I ever really posted on more than a few times. I think my first 10F post was around the end of November. I really fell like I have made FRIENDS here. I can even remember posting in the Playing with pictures thread that I wanted to just keep it a non reality thing I did(posting here), but as time went on I feel I have really connected. I have learned about places all over the world(and we are not really that different where ever we are). I actually come here daily to get a good laugh, see who is sick (BTW StyleWarz how are you??), see how peoples kids are, let Marja give me a rough time, see Beetlebosses new smileys or let Nat stroke my ego (why you want to marry CBo_O My wife might let me out of my contract some day LOL ;) ) Thanks for the memories in the past and soon to be present, and thanks Rita for letting us share these warm and fuzzy moment!

    Mike
