I saw your face through the computer’s screen,
Your friendly look was of someone I’ve often seen.
We might only know ourselves by keys and monitors,
But the feelings and emotions were created by open doors.
We shook hands as we exchanged views of expressed felt vibes,
Talking freely with honest opinions of our views and about our lives.
Sure feels wonderful to have spent another year at your house and mine,
And I believe that for the New Year we should celebrate with a glass of wine.
Our eyes might have only met looking at our screens, but they’ve met more,
Since we read our poems, stories, and viewed a picture like at our country store.
As friends this past year we have shared thoughts and ideas of both our minds,
And have expressed the hidden truths that often opened eyes use as blinds.
I ’m so gratefully thankful of this passing 2009 year for have known you,
Because you enriched my inner soul and heart when they were blue.
Perhaps the year of 2010 can cement our friendship forever more,
So past midnight of December 31 let us cheer our hearts galore.
Let’s make January 1, 2010 a new year to enjoy friendships,
With wine, cheese, dips and a bag of whole wheat chips.
So thank you my friend for holding both my hands,
No excuses, no degrading, or forced demands.
