I stare at the screen
and beg for a bone
The "Uh oh!" I hear
proves I'm not alone
My tail wags a rhythm to the beat of my heart
The cyber gods prove distance can't keep apart

A flash on my screen
another on yours
Wrap your arms around your keyboard
I'll lick my monitor
A kiss lasts forever if you save it on disk
But I'd dump my whole file just to feel human lips

As the night drags along
somehow I feel we're close
And touch to your window
Friend-Forever's wet nose
I spin myself down--my tail takes the lead,
Whimper "goodnight", curling up at your feet
