Connected but out of reach

You are cell bound,                                                                                                                             which is why you are presumed missing and you can never be found.                      When you’re on your phone, you never make a sound.                                                     Come to think of it nobody has ever had you laughing out loud.
You’re hardly ever around;you’ve even started to fade into the background.                     And when you’re lost you cannot be found.                                                                        What can I say? You are cell bound.

The only time I see you outside, is when you’re pacing around trying to get a signal to logon to yet another site.                                    				
After that you go out of sight.
Wherever you went, you used to greet,                                                                             now you just don’t have the time, because you have to tweet.                                          Your social skills are crumbling at your feet,                                                                        and you can’t even see it because it does not appear on your cell phone screen.

You always have time for online comments,                                                                        but you can never take a moment to see that your friend is in torment.                             I am not trying to judge,                                                                                                                                  Just trying to give you a nudge.
I am not trying to preach but rather to teach.
While you are cell bound please keep in touch.                                                                   Keep to the ground so that you can always be found,                                                        and be around for those close to you.                                                                               Because when you fall into the deep end they’ll around to make sure you don’t drown.    And whenever you’re sad they are always there to chase away your frown.                     So please keep in touch and don’t let them down. 
And always remember: your network is family and friends, 
their signal are always strong. 
Your battery fully charged with love and care.
