When it is cold outside and winter's here,
When frosty winds they bite at hands and toes,
It's nice to know that friends are close and near,
On Facebook where our friendly banter glows.
I message friends, or post a word or two,
I see their jokes and comment on their words,
I smile at things they say and things they do
We share our lives like happy twitt'ring birds.
I have an app upon my mobile phone,
It notifies me when something's been said
I know that I am never all alone,
Not even late at night when I'm in bed.
It's sort of like a blessing and a curse,
But loneliness is scarier and worse.
