Online Friendship

Yesterday I was so alone,
facing another day of loneliness.
Hooked my puter to the net,
and met that night my first new friend.
We chatted, teased, played with love notes,
we helped each other learn to download.
We danced, we sang,
he sent me a card, I sent him back one.
We became friends of chat.
Now I'm not lonely as before,
my man holds me, shares my fears.
I'm so different and I know why,
I am smiling, very wide.
He's out there with a life,
but he comes to hold me close each night.
And I learn how to flirt, and listen,
growing growing by the minute.
He means so much this online friend,
I am no fool it could end.
Not lonely any more.
