poem25 - for karen

.
Eleven thousand four hundred and six miles
separate us
A friend I’ve never seen nor spoken to
yet know so well

I fill my glass with wine of richest red
and raise it
in the hope that she is thinking of me
and raising hers too

I dream of the day we finally meet
Crazy I know
Eleven thousand four hundred and six miles
so far to go
'
Happy birthday Karen!

  1. Wow you made a wonderful posting and poem for our common friend Karen. She will be happy if she reads it but I think she is now sleeping.

  2. Yes often we find a great net friend .. a good friend .. never knowing if we will ever meet . And though some where along the way we know that it will not alter the friendship , this not meeting, but we do so keep hoping to meet him/her .

    A lovely birthday wish :)

    Keith,you have read the poem about the 39 yr old who died of brain tumor . May I request you to read the other side of the coin .. her husband's point of view . Though a little late in the week I thought I would post that for the Writer's Island prompt of :"Survivor"

    Thank you once again for stopping by.
