I don’t know the sound of his voice;
But I could hear it, each time –
So soothing and gracious.
I could see his smile; even
Without looking at his face.
His words, took me on a journey –
A journey to his heart,
That I feel beating;
With each word he types.
I could picture his beautiful eyes,
Staring at me;
With that smile I’ve never seen;
Yet, it brightens me up inside.
He makes me laugh so hard,
It feels like we’re actually together.
Yet the thing that separates us is
Just a screen.
So close, yet so far.
And, those silly conversations
Never gets old.
Feels like I’ve known him forever;
But, I’ve only known him for a few hours.
And those few hours have been magical!
He’s the stranger behind the screen.
The reason behind my smile!
