The room fills from the glow of the computer screen.
The hum of the hard drive coming to life.
She sits staring at the screen,
In anticipation of what it may bring.
Was it just a dream, just a fantasy?
She felt too good, felt so real.
The stranger that appeared out of nowhere,
A little message blinking with only one word
The two little letters, one little word,
Turned her world upside down, but for the good.
Tears of joy, tears of laughter,
Tears of pain, tears of sorrow.
This stranger listened when it mattered,
