(This was written for my sister who met her love here online and will become his wife in May...also dedicated to all the internet romances...It can happen!!!)

They Met on the Net

They met on the net
What a strange place
She could not hear his voice
He could not see her face

But she wrote his story
And he sung her song
And somehow they knew
That they'd get along

They talked and they talked
Became very good friends
They met on the net
But that's not where it ends

He asked her to meet him
And she agreed to
They were destined to meet
So what else could they do

They met on the net
And in person once more
She knew it was him
When he entered the door

He reconized her
As he entered the place
Smiled when he saw her
And then touched her face

It was like he had known her
Not for months, but for years
With the joy that he felt
His eyes brimmed with tears

They met on the net
And that was alright
But when she saw him
It was love at first sight

He asked for her hand
And then gave her a ring
When she said, "I will"
His heart started to sing

Oh, they met on the net
Then they met in real life
It was destined to be
And she now is his wife

We met on the net and, to my great surprise,
When I saw her in person, she had more that two eyes!
She was "I's this..." and "I's that..." and "I's gonna get..."
The "I" was the mainstay of her alphabet!

The day that I met her I'll always regret,
And now I know why they call it the 'net'!

Am laughing, thanks Balladeer!
Have seen it go both ways, the romantic in me still believes it can be done.

Balladeer...he can be so goofy sometimes...but we love him! I loved this "net come true" love poem, it was heartwarming hoot_owl. Thanx for sharing such a sweet true story!

For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...

This was lovely. My son married a girl he meet on ICQ. The net is the 'singles bar' of the new millennium! I'm still fishing by the way...all I get are walleyed pike and carp!

Laughs, thanks poet, know the feeling, maybe we aren't using the right bait?
Thanks Andrew, they liked it.
