With simple words on a computer screen
An identity formed, grew, in my mind
I became fond of a man, sight unseen
And was thrilled at finding a friend so kind
Getting to know him was easy enough
Our friendship developed, grew, in my mind
Yet the thought of love, my heart did rebuff
As hundreds of miles' restriction confined

The days passed me by, and in each of them
I did look for him in some form or way
All while up against those who would condemn
In their minds, he just seemed too far away
And the day did come, and my heart gave in
Distance notwithstanding, I found my love
Realization rang with an awful din
There was no respite I could conceive of


I ponder those days
that have come
and passed us by.

there were trials
and tears

Months were cast
like the leaves
off autumn's

it was summer

A hand's fingers
reach up to touch the
smile upon my face

my fingers

And I muse now, how
little I smiled
how few
received that gift from
my heart..

until you

Until you, my soul
came to me
surpassing the distance
in miles
in me..
This smile
an unseen gift
as you lay sleeping
beside me.

Together we've been for a few weeks now
Truly, it seems so much longer than that
I have to thank Passions, cause that's how
I came to love and be with my Alicat.

Wonderful to hear of a happy ending....or is that beginning? Best of all to you both ( I have it on good authority that Alicat is really a decent guy!)

I am stunned...not often has the written word evoked such strong emotion...strong enough to cause awe-struck tears of sheer joy to escape my sight-wearied eyes.

Thank you all for your kind and heart-felt messages (and yes, she is reading this on the sly) and I find myself loving her all the more each passing moment. She is truly a treasure, buried deep and now found.

Alicat the deeply smitten
