Widowed and lonely and feeling blue,
I needed someone, but didn’t know what to do.
Prayed, and the answer seemed to be,
join a dating site, then leave things to me.
Everyone warned me, that’s not the thing to do.
Predators, murderers, and they’re all out for you!
But I listened to God, gave the Internet a try.
Four months later, I was wondering why?
I thought I understood, but was everyone right?
Then, one by one, I got off from each site.
But just before I decided love was not to be,
a man sent three messages, just for me.
First I prayed, was he a sweet guy?
We started e-mailing, my friend and I.
The entire time no Red Flags did he get,
I was so excited, but there was more to come yet.
He won my phone number, with the promise of a song,
my heart skipped a beat, as I listened along.
And everyday to my computer I’d run,
I’d hear his familiar beep, this was fun.
Instant message, e-mail, jokes and such,
every day I received such a rush.
So what would become of Him and Me?
Whatever God willed, bless my Internet friend Lanny.
