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
