My Cyber Friend

I haven't ever seen you,

but I know you're really there;

I click you into reality

Like magic from the air.

Your voice is like an angel,

Though I really do not hear;

Your hug as warm as any

Of loved ones I hold dear.

You're always there for comfort,

Or a word of cheer;

Though you are very far away,

I always have you near.

You're a very special friend,

Like none I've ever known;

As long as you're in cyberspace

I'll never be alone.
