This is a short post
(Quit saying YEAH!!!) because I spent my night surfing and reading blogs, old and new. But I’ve been pondering this recently.
When does friendship start?
You click on my blog and press like?
Is that what it takes?
I read and follow, and you come back.
We exchange a comment.
Are we friends yet?
We share an X or O
Or maybe a 🙂 or two.
Has that sparked the cord?
I pour out my heart in a post,
And you stop by to say you understand.
Is that the start?
Is it random?
Is it planned?
Is it ever the same from one person to the next?
Why do some love me, and others…
never come back?
Why do I feel connected?
Is it the pictures?
Are words alive?
Is it the words you share with others?
I don’t have the answers.
I just know.
That some of you just touch the realest part of me.
It’s not that others are bad.
It’s not that they don’t try.
It’s not that you try harder, or longer.
It just happens over and over again.
One minute I’ve never heard of you.
And the next one – you’re my friend.
