tim's Bits and Pieces - 82. Real Friends

We sometimes forget there are real people writing words online. Words can heal or hurt. People can be cruel. It's easy to turn off others you've decided are not real or worthy.

Real Friends

 

Friends come and go

Like mists at dawn

Burned away by the heat of the sun

 

It’s too much not to really know them

If I cannot see you

You are not real

 

Yet, I am writing this and I know

It is enough for my soul

To simply know of yours

***

Thanks for reading and for your comments and thoughts.

I think without friends we can't really know who we are. 

Every friendship, no matter how deep, affects us in different ways. 

I truly believe that friends are the family that you choose. 

Thanks for sharing tim.

I hear you little brother. I've oft said it's too easy to pretend that others aren't real people when separated by the ether or when we are wrapped inside a vehicle on the highway.

Thank you for your words.

Reminds me of an old saying about people coming into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

Wonderful. The internet is both good and evil. It's given us much and has a lot to answer for. Well said, tim.

You may not have a physical form here, but with a few words you are seen by so many. As always, beautifully done.

"Real" is an interesting concept now-a-days.

We experience the world through physical means, but more and more through electronic mediums. Does that make our relationships or friendships here less? We allow these electronic friends power over us by emotionally connecting with them. We let them in. We invest in one another's lives and spend emotional currency on them.

You've hit upon a truth, I think. Friends we make here are people we have entrusted with a part of our hearts.

Great poem, friend.
