My Unknown Friend

It was a rule I broke

that would lead me to find

a person who was actually kind.

A person I barely know,

and has had the courtesy to say "Hello".

Countries away we are

and yet with social media

it isn't that far.

This person may not know me

nor I truly know them,

but I might call them 

my amigo, my ami, my friend.

Thank you for the days 

that you have made me smile,

with the simple messages,

and polite words.

Thank you for making me feel like

I am worth something,

when it is not your responsibility.

This is just a thank you,

for being there when my "friends" are not.
