    A good friend on the net,
    We all live within the words,
    We don't feel ourselves beyond the borders,
    Your friend is your idea, and thought,
    The letters t, s that you cross
    And the I, s that you dot,
    The real friend in meat that you really meet,
    Is your smart mind, your kind heart.
    (Moez Ben Meftah)
