This Poem was written about my depth of despair, my loneliness, and my missing someone - though never having touched him. I dreamed of him, and when we first met on the Internet I was an emotional wreck. I had heard people talk about "falling in love" on the Internet and I would laugh and shake my head in disbelief. How could you possibly fall in love with words? I now understand exactly how that can happen. We were miles apart and I don't think that we would have ever been together in a physical sense. Our situation complicated this matter so completely, and I think that we both knew in our heart of hearts that there was no future for us. I feel blessed that I have had the opportunity to have this very special man in my life . . . if only for a while. His voice was a ray of sunshine in my life. He brought about feelings in me I did not know I had. I will always believe he's my "soulmate". Sad isn't it?

Stretch Forth Your Hand

Stretch forth your hand and hold to mine
as through this fog we go.
Endless as night in a borrowed dream
of one lost and deep in sorrow...

I see you not and I hear not your voice,
and yet I feel you so nearby.

It's just a dream - yes, always a dream -
unreachable for even you and I...

I know that I shall never know
why I met you this way.
Carrying this cross of burden along
knowing that here alone I must stay...

I cannot know, nor ever will see
why this path I know I need walk.
Without you here by my side to touch
and never given the chance to talk...

I close my eyes now and try to see
the reason why you have been.
A burning fire, an unquenchable desire
and so much more than just a friend...

A weight of pure sadness presses my soul
and tears flow where I cannot see.
For what I've so wanted and couldn't have
and what I knew never could be...

It was you who would visit my dreams
and you were unreachable for me then.
I was but lonely when I saw you,
but I knew I'd find you, my friend...

I was so sure when I was young that
when I did find you you'd be mine.
The thought never did enter my mind
that it would come too late in time...

I sit here with tears and
cannot think quite clear of what I
wanted to say. I just want you to know
that I never did doubt,
Yes... That I would find you
I Will Remember You

The pain that touches me as I think of you
is fierce and numbing.
How I wish that I could be with you.
Be with you on this day,
this hour, this minute.
You are in my thoughts always,
Such sorrow the thoughts of you bring.
If only we could love and care for one another
like we have always shared.

The joy of a day
that will never come haunts me,
Yet I bathe in the hope that it brings.
The sound of your laughter
sends shivers down my spine
and pains in my heart as I think of you.
I have made a decision,
to be silent in my thoughts,
Silent in my love for you.

One day a long time from now.
I will be sitting quietly somewhere.
The lines of time etched on my face.
I will think about
all of the moments of the past.
Everything that we shared . . .
mind, body and soul.
As a smile stretches across my face
and dances in my heart
I will remember you.
