A Stranger as A friend?

People ask me often,
"How can you be friends
with someone you've never met?"

I tell them,
" You've never been online I am sure!"

It's something people offline will never understand.
You open up your heart to friendship
with your fingers typing away fast.

It's a world full friendship at your finger tips,
there is so much online,and
it only takes a heart to reach people
with your touch.

First you start out online, surfing all around.
Next thing you know a great friend will be found.

You will chat a lot and surf a lot.
Soon it will be your second home,
a comforting, and special place.

You will find a
Friend to share your dreams and your tears
and to help each other wipe away life's fears.

You will share life together
and help each other along
You will make it through bad weather
because friendship is so strong.

No matter how far apart you go,
your keyboards will keep you together,
and in your heart you will know
you don't need a face to be a true friend forever.

So, How do you explain this to people
who've never been online?
I guess it takes a gesture of friendship
& a little bit of time & effort.

So let's start by keeping in touch
and passing our special touch.
A smile, a website, a gesture starts it all
becoming friends doesn't take much.

Hi Deb,

Really true, you need not face but just time and space to be friends in this online world.

I had been a chatter in my early twenties and I thoroughly enjoyed making friends. But one thing gives me ache is, I dont have any contacts with me today.

I truly will love if I can make a friend who will be with me - in this virtul reality..till eternity!!

Regards with best of spirits, and need not to mention that you have a wonderful write up put over here.
