What You Mean To Me

I never came here looking for a single soul.
But now that I found you I want you to know

I had forgotten how to smile, how to laugh, how to be me
I had forgotten the sweet pleasure of a heart filled with glee.

I was intoxicated with life... work and family
Never stopping for fun... it just wasn't there you see.

Since I have found you... it's been a complete turn around
I smile and laugh again... not much gets me down.

I get excited when I see you on ICQ
Wondering what it is today we will do...

Chatting, laughing and the games we play
You make my every day.

It seems so silly on just a machine
How someone can reach you... become your everything.

This poem is true, well for me. Life for me wasn't all that great until I found that special person. He was for me just a nobody, cuz I didn't know him but once i got to know him I found in him a true friend one that makes me smile and laugh whenever Im sad. Now I can't stop thinking of. But this poem really touched me and it rocks!

Belinda
This poem to me is so true! it reminds me of all the good and bad times me and my 'special' net friend had it wasnt just over the internet but through txting as well! all this seemed to good to be true. i found someone special to me that i could trust and tell all to. wel as i thought it was all to good and he stopped talking till one day i worked up enough courage to ask him what went wrong and all he did was shut me down. this has left me feeling sad and dumb all i say is its nice to find someone who cares but just make sure they really do. i thought what i found was real guess i was wrong dont be stupid and put your heart on the line.
Donna

I sent this to my internet friend he means so much to me, and this poem reminds me of all he has done to me. keep up the great work! it really hit my heart reading it cus its soo true!
Raissa
This poem really touched me, because I have experienced the same as the poet has, only not at ICQ but on MSN. My schoolfriends think I'm weird, because I chat with people I do not know in real life, but the friends I met on the internet mean alot to me, and we also have contact now via telephone and letters. Thank you for this poem, and keep on writing:)

I really feel this poem can be true if you take the inner meaning of it. I myself met someone over the internet through a friend. We talked for hours and Eventually fell in love. We went 7-8 months before we finally met, I know hwta it can be like, loving and really caring about someone that you've not met. I just want to say to not give up on things, you can find love in the most unusual ways and you neevr knbow it could be ment to be. It happened to me, it can happen to you. To my current fiancee I love you and if it wernt for teh internet I wouldnt have you. This is an excelent poem!

I am sure so many others have felt the exact sentiments but could not express them as well as you have done with this one poem, I know I could never come as close as you have. You have done an excellent job, and thank you for letting me use it to send to some of my wonderful online friends too.
