I received this poem from an Internet friend today. While it wishes me a Happy New Year, it expresses something that is a building phenomenon throughout the world. The days of making friends with your neighbours or work colleagues have been surpassed by the connections we can make with people all over the world without ever uttering a single word.
Email, instant messaging and social networking are all taking a place in our social development. Humanity is growing as an organism and people all over the planet are reaching out to other like minded individuals to express themselves and to feel a lost kinship. I for one, hope this outreach continues as this may be the way in which humanity comes together to fight to save our planet.
Please read the poem and leave a comment below.
You hold a place within my life,
unusual and unique;
We share ideals and special dreams,
and still, we do not speak.
I picture what I think you are,
perhaps you picture me.
An intriguing game for both of us
for someone we can’t see.
So for this friendship we possess,
we owe this mail a debt,
Perhaps the charm lies in the fact
that we have never met.
My Friend for that is what you are~ I offer you a New Years wish of Love, peace and Joy. May your home,heart and family be blessed with all of these and an overabundance of happiness, for that is what you have given me by being my Internet friend.
P.S. everyone…may 2009 bring you everything you desire and some things as a surprise.
