About the Poem

I found something on the Internet - something that I never expected to find. It has brought me great happiness, and it is tearing me apart. All at the same time.

This poem is amazine, so amazine. Basically u have taken the words right out of my mouth to which I have been meaning to say to someone which means so,so much to me. Their are certain parts that relates to me and makes me want to cry. I love the fact that you start the sentances with,"Have I Ever Told You". you've made my day, as I have just emailed this to a very close friend of mine who means the world to me. Thank you for this poem. You know if your poem is as wonderful as it is, u must be a wonderful person also. )!once again thanks so much. You take good care and good luck. Keep doing what you do best.

Have I Ever

Have I ever told you
that if I sit really still and silent,
sometimes. I like to think
I can hear your heart beating
in time with mine?

Have I ever told you
that when I watch you speak to me
through lines and cords,
and bytes and ram,
I imagine
your voice,
whispering into my ear?

Have I ever told you
that I wait out each day
in anticipation,
only an hour or two,
just a second in space and time,
to feel close to you?

Have I ever told you
that there has been times,
when I ached for you,
ached for you so badly,
that the emotions overwhelmed me..
and so I sat and cried?

Have I ever told you
that sometimes,
I will reach out,
touching your name
on this cold screen before me,
I could reach in
and pull you to me?

Have I ever told you
that after the first time I heard
the sound of your voice,
thousands of miles away,
I sat up all night,
turning the conversation over and over
in my mind,
examining it,
like some newly discovered species of flower?

Have I ever told you
that I would give everything up,
just for one night
to be able to lay near you,
to feel your chest rise and fall
with each breath you take,
just to know that you are real?

Have I ever told you
that I dream of you often,
I dream of you reaching out
and touching my hand,
simply to let me know
that you are there,
and everything is okay?

Have I ever told you,
have I still yet to tell you . . .
that I love you?

I really love this poem, cause I did find my love on the internet, and he does live far away from me. Each phrase, has touched me so deeply cause it feels like it was written for me. it brought tears to both me and my love. thank you for such a beautiful and meaningful poem.
I loved this one. felt as if you wrote about me
This is a beautiful and heartfelt poem that brings back everything i felt at the beginning of my first internet relationship. I went to get my love. all the feelings and the longing to be together was fulfilled and it was so worth the wait and the money it cost to travel thousands of miles. If you are still in the same position i urge you to do the same. experience what i did. It will never leave you. we got engaged. maybe you wil too. keep writing and hoping.
I have red the poem called "HAVE I EVER" i read it to my girlfriend & the next moment she was all tears! I want to thank the person who wrote the poem. PLEASE keep it up u have take my relationship to the next level.
this poem is absolutely a work of art. i when i read this i was so touched because this is exactly how i feel about my gf who lives on the opposite coast of the US. we were talking on the phone and when i showed her she cried with joy. i hope this author continues his/her work and know that with this poem alone, they have touched the hearts and lives of many

Spoke to me about a similar situation. You captured the passion conveyed over "bytes and ram" as well as the longing for another human.
Beautiful! Very, Very Beautiful!
This poem captured my heart. it conveyed my feelings exactly. i met a guy online and i realise now after reading this poem that my feelings for him are stronger than what i thought. i actually had tears in my eyes when i read this poem. it was exactly how i felt, what i thought, even the words are exactly what i have already told my love.
this poem touched me deeply, as it describes my own feelings after meeting someone very special online. We exchanged words and these words were poetry to both of us,we see each other regularly now and are very much in love.
nice poem
I am just now experiencing first love it is an amazing thing. Like they say, your best is your first

The poem explain exactly how I feel about the person I met over the internet.
i recently just found, i believe, the person to be my truelove. i love her so much, but i live in pennsylvania, and she in wisconsin. we talk everyday, and usually talk on the phone for a couple hours some days, but sometimes i just wish i could be there with her, to look into her gorgeous blue eyes and kiss her forehead and let her know how much she means to me and how much i love her. this poem hit all of my feelings head on, so, well done!

I absolutely loved it. I wish I thought of something like that for my girlfriend.
I liked the poem so much because of many things. First, I liked how the flow of the words seemed to play right along, like a song. Second, I liked how the poem showed understanding of the subject. Most of all, I love this poem because I can truly relate to what this poem had to say.
Its exactly how I feel.
