To an Online Friend

by
 May be the whole thing was a dream,
Pinched myself awake this morn,
To check if you are there, virtually,
And felt your sudden absence online!

Be sure you will always exist,
In a special place in my heart,
Your smile in pixels is so sweet,
But, no, you are too good to be true!

Where are you? Do you exist?
Do you still inhabit Internet protocols?
And virtual chats and emoticons
That in joyous moments I watched.
Now that you are gone; are you Among your charmed admirers? I wish you well, I will miss you, May you be ever happy and smiling! Distances and togetherness, Opposites, can’t networks cross, I could never bridge the distances Of your sweet kindness.
Someday, if you feel betrayed, And, as weepy as a monsoon cloud, Remember this friend who still cares, And felt fulfilled by your brief warmth.
