About the Poem

I met a man on the internet and fell in love. Our situations were such that this love could never be. It has been hard for us - being apart, and yet feeling as we do. This Poem was written about my depth of despair, my loneliness, and my missing him - though never having touched him. I dreamed of him, and when we first met on the Internet I was an emotional wreck. I remembered him... Weird? Some people would think so. I believe he's my "soulmate". Sad isn't it?

Stretch Forth Your Hand

Stretch forth your hand and hold to mine
as through this fog we go.
Endless as night in a borrowed dream
of one lost and deep in sorrow...

I see you not and I hear not your voice,
and yet I feel you so nearby.
It's just a dream - yes, always a dream -
unreachable for even you and I...

I know that I shall never know
why I met you this way.
Carrying this cross of burden along
knowing that here alone I must stay...

I cannot know, nor ever will see
why this path I know I need walk.
Without you here by my side to touch
and never given the chance to talk...

I close my eyes now and try to see
the reason why you have been.
A burning fire, an unquenchable desire
and so much more than just a friend...

A weight of pure sadness presses my soul
and tears flow where I cannot see.
For what I've so wanted and couldn't have
and what I knew never could be...

It was you who would visit my dreams
and you were unreachable for me then.
I was but a small child when I saw you,
but I knew I'd find you, my friend...

I was so sure when I was young that
when I did find you you'd be mine.
The thought never did enter my mind
that it would come too late in time...

I sit here with tears and
cannot think quite clear of what I
wanted to say. I just want you to know
that I never did doubt,
Yes... That I would find you again
Someday...

Great poem. I am only 14 years old, but I am really into love stories, songs, poems, love anything really, and I met the most perfect girl ever on a chat room, while I was in a stage of depression. She made it better for me and now we are in love, and we tell each other everyday. Well Done!

For the last month,I have fallen in love. I keep wondering though,if it's too good to be true. If he's the right one,or if I'm obsessed. the only comfort I have and all that I need is your poem. It's beautiful,it's romantic. and it let's me know that you really can never be too young to love,this poem is the inspiration I needed to never let MY soulmate AND true love go. I think this poem wasn't written from the head but from the heart,and I was touched by it very much. Thank you Sandy. Your poem can be described in only one word. perfect.

sheng
a lovely poem gurl! I'm into net relationship too. It's really hard to love someone accross the miles! you can't express your feeling especially if both of u has a misunderstanding. And especially he's not online and u don't know where to find him??? This is the hardest part. but u can't do anything just wait for him to go online tskkk! goodluck!
Sue

This poem was amazing. Full of sadness and love. full of emotions meant to be shared. I loved it. Many people think internet romance is a shameful thing. but it is real and it is just as painful as real life love.

Hey, Sandy. This is great. I almost cried, because it made me think of my own sad situation. I met a guy on the net 3 years ago (4 years in August), and for a period of 6 months we had lost touch. When we finally found eachother again, a wonderful thing happend..I realized that I loved him, and he the same. We met for the first time the day after Christmas this year and it was absolute bliss. This past month has been torture away from him, but there is no doubt in my mind now that he truly is my soulmate. :) I hope you find your love.it's worth the wait.trust me
