Invisible friends: A Poem

This world is an amazing place. The people you meet, who you never really meet except through writing or photos, words and images, can be the best part of all. I have had the pleasure of exchanging wonderful stories and experiences with my friend B.G over at Getting through Anxiety (gettingthroughanxiety.wordpress.com). She and I both have a fondness for positivity, writing, the animal world and too many other things to count. I asked B to do a compilation with me and she agreed. I was so excited as we have different styles and I was so happy with what we merged and created. I hope you enjoy it and know that we both think quite fondly of our invisible friends, you here who read and comment. Our lives wouldn’t be the same without the greatest and kindest gift of friendship. Thank you and here is our offering to you, our friends.
A poem by B.G and me😊

Part of me regrets

That we’ve never met

And that we’ve only talked

Through words on an electronic page.

We speak through wires and keys

Thoughts flowing with ease

Yet we are like birds

Locked within this cage.

Yet here you are before me

Words written to share glimpses

Of your soul that speaks,

Getting to know you.

To find a friend not met

To share a virtual talk across worlds

Our paths may never cross perhaps

Except through a sentence or two.

For as much as we may want to meet face to face

We need to remember the importance of being safe

For in this world there are those less than kind

Those who do not know the true value of a friend.

But you have managed to constantly brighten my day

With the constant words of kindness that you say

You’re always there offering a helping hand

Full of advice you find in your heart to lend.

But in the quiet space when I feel lost

I know your invisible thoughts come to reach me

To give me the gift of support,

To tell me I’m not so alone.

And in a world of pain

Where we need kindness to stay sane

I look to you for comfort

From the coldness I sometimes feel.

And in every word you type

You make it all alright

For having someone understand

Can have the amazing power to heal.

To friendship….a beautiful thing indeed. Thanks B for joining me on this journey of friendship. I truly cherish it. Please make sure you stop over and visit B, she is wise and inspirational and I know you will love her tips that help make our world a bit smoother. Peace and blessings, K

  1. I am finding the cage is often our own making my friend. We know where the key is most times, yet be it fear or responsibility we remain behind the imagined or oft times not quite imagined bars….the trick I am finding…gain strength to lift the key and with ninja warrior moves, unlock the thing once and for all😊 thank you my wise friend….I think I need to purchase a bigger dictionary for following your grand blog😊 peace and blessings, K

  5. What a lovely collaboration and a beautiful poem. It speaks to me, as I’ve found so many friends online, and don’t know if we’ll ever meet. But I value them as much as the friends I see in person on a regular basis.

  9. Yes, absolutely 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed Oliver’s tales. It’s so apt to your post because I’ve become quite attached to our frolicking furry friends. 😀

  10. I hear you. There is a unique bond between the creative sect hat I think enables us to get a much deeper understanding, and because they’re not actually in your life except through the web, allows us to express ourselves in different ways than how we would with, let’s say, family and close friends. Hanks for your comment, loving the Oliver tales too by the way…and Jeffery of course😊

  11. I enjoyed this a great deal. I’ve made several close friends I’ve never met and a few I care as deeply about as if we spent daily rants together at a cafe over coffee or tea. Perhaps the appeal of such good invisible friends is they need not be feared for what they might do.
