I LOST A FRIEND TODAY

 

I've lost a friend I didn't know,

The message came today,

Propelled through wires at speed of light,

From near or far away.

 

A noble friend, of ancient blood,

A staunch and mighty guard,

A loving comfort, hero,

Fair grist for any bard.

 

He left behind a family

And friends to mourn his death.

He left behind a wash of tears,

As he drew his last breath.

 

Computer networks span the globe

And contact now is found

With folks that we may never see

But feel with touch profound.

 

The dots of light on screen of glass

Shape words of joy or pain,

We teach and learn and share our lives

And blessings deep we gain.

 

So now I sit with sniffling nose,

A tear runs down my face,

I share a loss and try to find

Pure words of peace and grace.

 

A dog has died, but more than that,

A precious life has passed.

We take them in, they bless our lives,

Then leave us much too fast.

 

God grant us peace and mem'ries long,

Our short-lived friends to keep,

In stories, images, and thoughts,

To calm us as we weep.

 

Now, lightning's brother, speed my words,

Through fibers, disks, and such.

May cold computer magic turn

To caring, human touch.

aaaaaaaaaawwwww (sniff) who wrote that?

I don't know, it didn't say. Someone on another forum posted it this evening. She lost one of her dogs yesterday and she said that it had helped her a bit so I thought I'd post it here.

Thanks for posting that. What a wonderful poem, and so fitting in today's age of computers. I know a LOT of folks out there I never met except on the internet were a great comfort to me when I lost my Bart :heart
