Let Me Leave You with a Song......

I am going to sit here and ponder how some people can think that the friendships we develope here on line are just fake. Ponder why so many tears have been shed for Anenigma by so many people and yet according to some its all just fake. I am going to sit here and ponder why I have been shedding tears for my lost friend Kimmers when she was never real at all.

I will be back. When the tears stop flowing and the rooftop can once again be a happy place. To all my fake friends out there.. I love you. I also know that you are very real. Very real indeed. Very real people with very real emotions.

Remind me to tell you about a very special phone call I got yesterday when I come back. Life is not all tears. My life is also one very big smile right now because of a phone call. It has forced me to look again at the positives in my life. Life is a mystery, emotions are a mystery, my phone call was from a mystery. That is a story for another day.

For now, I would just like to leave you with a song, for thats what bards do.
Leave you with a song.

Seasons In The Sun
( Terry Jacks )

Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and A B C's
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.

Goodbye my friend it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and I'll be there

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed were just seasons
Out of time......

Goodbye Papa please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
Wonder how I got along.

Goodbye Papa its hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children everywhere
When you see them I'll be there.

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons
Have all gone.

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons
Have all gone.

Goodbye Michelle my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground.

Goodbye Michelle it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers everywhere
I wish that we could both be there

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons
Have all gone

All our lives we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed were just seasons
Out of time......

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun

I am not dead yet

From one "fake" friend to another....that was beautiful...and made my "fake" heart fill with many different "fake" emotions...that only another "fake" friend would understand...the "fake" tears running down my cheeks.

You know this..because you know we are not fake, nor are the thoughts and feelings we share in good times and bad....in happy or sad....and even in times of anger...Anger at mean people.

This tragedy with Anenigma517...has been a shock to us all....many, many of us are so terribly sad....and why is that?

It's because little by little...many of us grown to love and understand one another regardless of the distances, regardless of whether many of us will actually ever meet face to face. So, so many of us are truly good decent people.

With the exception of a few extremely sick individuals who rip people apart or manage to figure out where someone is and track them down.

I probably shouldn't say this...but I'm going to anyway.. why couldn't it have been one of them in that intersection in PA.?

You are so not a "fake"...your the real deal and a real friend to many, many of us.

There was a time...long before Blogland....that I was skeptical at how in the world do people form such a bond...how do people fall in love...thru the Internet....How?

I was baffled by it...couldn't understand it, couldn't see it. It made no sense to me and I thought...there must be something wrong with these people.

I understand it now...

I'll be looking forward to hearing about your special phone call.

Peace... slide {=}

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

Once again, you find the perfect verse. ( oh, and by the way, I prefer to be called phony instead of fake ) See you Thursday Bard.

I have shed tears for people here who has portrayed fake friendships to me. I know that there are real people on this site, WITH REAL FEELINGS. But until you sit before a few of them, is what they extend to you really real or are they just putting up a facade. I don't know but I do know that I have a true friendship to offer people, but it is they who dont want it. There has been things seen here that I dont dare say anything about because I am sure I would be called a whiner,and god forbid any of that happens, but the proof is in the attendance and if you dont believe that, take a look at my corner and I am real and NOT a fake, but sometimes I think people want me to act like I am, and to sit back and be quiet like some good little girl.

A friend will stick by you closer than a brother.

I like what you do over here. Keep doing it.

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"

Bard, I hope you don't mind my reposting an old post that came to mind:

[post 11606]

When I see you
I don't really see you
but just touch your picture

When I hear you
I don't really hear you
but just look at your lines

When I want you
I so much do want you
but just sit here and wait

When I need you
I feel so helpless
for I can't say it out loud

When we met
I fell for you completely
and wholeheartedly

Tho we never
really did meet
we just did so online

If it's all so unreal
and just virtual reality
Why does my heart hurt so bad

if you need a friend, i can always be found under the boardwalk

these bonds may not be physically tangible.. but they are as real as real gets... the 21st century brought us new ways to connect... and a connection it is...
i have cried for some, and with some, laughed with many others, gotten jumped up cursin an spitten angry over things done to a friend here...i have felt support for my pains and losses... appreciated when you and others shared some of your battlescars.. i treasure that trust..
my emotions are as real as if that person was sitting in front of me.. i don't for one second doubt the sincerity of most folks here..

Great song Bard, after all the stuff that is rearing its ugly head, persae, regarding anenigma, its just to close to home for me. We had a woman here last year make up a story similar to this one, well it just sorta kicks you in the gut and I just don't feel like feeling like that again.

I am awaiting to see what sensuallykatey you be the judge, has to tell me. I do believe I am going to follow you and take a few days off.

Even though we are all "fake" freinds, I do value your posts daily, you make me laugh, stop and think, cry and at times question things. I am glad that you are here and I will miss you while you are gone, hurry back up to the roof

hugs, and smiles

I remember crying the first time I heard that song...and damn...you've done it again. I frankly don't care who thinks I'm real or not...I've always lived by the rule that those who "know" me...know I'm real. Blessed Be Bardi...(and please contact me about that other thing...)

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Bard, from a 'fake friend' here in the unreal world.....as someone else here puts it, I love your guts. Thanks for the song, it has always been a favorite of mine. We'll all be awaiting your return.

I too will be remembering.

One other thing one should think about....what happens when we move on and another generation of bloggers move in....

Same thing in the real world....

Hey Bard, thanks for the song. It's been a while since I've heard it. My condolences to all as I don't know anyone here or the persona of Anenigma517, I'm sorry of thier passing. As in my own pain I have a 101 year old father who may also be gone and this is a very appropriate song also. I hope I'm not being inappropriate by mentioning this as I'm just getting into this blog stuff now that I see what it is about? Because I'm not around people much due to my job I know I may be making mistakes at times in many situations, and I'm sorry if I boo-booed. Again I'm sorry for your loss and mine as I never got to meet or read of Anenigma.

He says - I don't need to touch gravity to know it's there. I feel it every day. I don't need to understand the thermodynamics involved inside the sun to know it keeps me warm. I'm thankful for it every day.

She says - Remind yourself you're only two steps away from the whole picture, for a reason. Then stop being such a pessimist. I hope you can enjoy our first post. It's not something many people can inspire. For Friends
