Even though they lived
a long distance away
they met and a friendship
was born

A big pond separated
these two, but they chose
to live in the moment
and cultivate a relationship

Many emails back and forth
a lot of laughter
a few tears too
nothing could tear these
two apart- a relationship
that was meant to weather
the storms

They would be friends
Never would they cross
that big pond and meet

It was a matter of fate
that they met
and nothing and no-one
could tear them apart

A friendship that was meant to be
a love that would always be
they lived and loved
in the moment

A moment that would last
a lifetime
A love that was meant to be
Forever and Never


Author's Note: Written for a very close friend who lives just across the "pond"

A fine bringing together of words to express this long-distance friendship. Many would never take the time on someone they would never see - these are two special people.

As a person who has quite a few freinds I've met online and never met in person, I can relate to this. Very beautiful!

Well, distances mean nothing for
'A love that was meant to be
Forever and Never
'. A new world is created with in this commonly shared world where the lovers MEET, LOVE and LIVE

Your expression of a world within a world is beautiful. It's here we see so clearly that love and life walk hand in hand in the spaceless and timeless realm of belonging.

How beautifully and perfectly expressed. I'm thinking - at last! I've found the words for this friend - the one I was at a loss to explain! It is my friend across the pond! Memorable and ex'lent!
