They thought I was out of my mind
When I told them I had found
The love of my life on the Internet
My plans seemed not very sound.
"Friends only" we remained for years
You married someone who lived close by
I knew in my heart I wished you well
But inside I thought I would die.
The years rolled by, we kept in touch
Only as friends through the years
I prayed to find someone just like you
Earnestly through my tears.
And then the circumstances changed
And you were filled with grief
I tried to comfort you in your loss
Life is unfair and time is a thief.
Another year passed by and then
We finally met face to face
And heaven opened wide its doors
As we stood in a friendly embrace.
Now we're married a year and a half
And those who doubted now praise
The joy and peace that we have found
Now in our golden age days.
