The true friends who we meet online
Are a very special kind ...
They pierce your shields and see within
The corners of your mind.
They're always there when you're in need
With their power to discern;
They feel your pain, they offer hope
And genuine concern.
We bare our souls, expose our hearts,
And show our inner fears;
And then before you know it ...
The keyboard's stained with tears.
And if we could see them through that screen,
Then no one could deny ...
That to be a TRUE online friend,
They too must surely cry.
