(This is another collective work between me and johnt300 written in a game of poetry tag...thanks Tyson...Hugs )

At days end I wonder
Will I find you here this night?
In my dreams my arms embrace you
Holding you as close as I can
If my words could bridge this distance
The gap between us would surely fade
Your words they fill my empty hours
And thru cyberspace I come to you
Searching, seeking access to your thoughts
Gaining access to your soul
Hoping, wishing for a sign
My heart an open book to you
My screen an open door
Fingers trace along the keys
Longing just to touch your skin
To feel you speak to me
The miles between us at an end
Time and space forgotten subjects
We cling only to the here and now
Will these hands ever touch you?
Can my heart reach out to you?
With these miles around our hearts
Why do I feel so close to you?

Oh Isis, been there, done that, and back again...you said it very well. Nice poem. :-)

Loved this one, so many thoughts here of waiting,and wondering. It's wonderful with today's technology, you can fall in love with a personality before even seeing a face. The real value of a person sings through from his mind.

: I love this one too, but I'll go one further,
the real beauty of a person, comes from not only the mind but the heart.
Great job in the tag race!:

Thanks everyone for your comments

Yes Isis....I couldn't agree with you more, I'd much rather see inside someones heart before I lay eyes on their face, to me that is the most important thing.

Lost Dreamer....how true you speak, technology today has afforded us a means of meeting people that we would never have found possible 20 years ago. This way you can learn about them, see into their mind and soul before you ever meet them in person

Hoot another great one you two produced!!!
I agree with you, getting to know someone before you see them, can help. As long as they are telling the truth about themselves.
Not that you two aren't. I just think so many times frienships don't happen because people tend to see the outside first.
