Charles L. Weatherford

INTERNET FRIEND

In flesh never met,
still strong bonds were forged between
brothers in spirit.
Free-flowing conversations
shared through world-spanning wires.

Smiles and laughs and tears;
all passed through our friendship’s door.
He grew in wisdom.
A bizarrely funny man,
never to be forgotten.

Author’s Note: A funeral started a little bit ago to bury a soldier, a poet, a good friend, and a very funny man.
