    I often reply to a post and put something like "sending you a huge bouquet of cyber flowers and cyber hugs". I've posted this on the "After Dementia Dealing With Loss" forum, but it applies equally, I think, to those of you on here, who have "lost" the spouse or partner they once knew.

    Cyber Hugs

    When those problems we desperately try to off-shrug,
    When we'd give every penny, to just get a hug

    When it's sunny, or miserable, oh how we've cried
    As we long for our sweetheart, to be by our side

    We nail smiles on our faces, when others we meet
    Though our grief, like a rod, goes from head, down to feet

    We must trudge through life's journey, as best as we can
    Though we weep for our loss, of our woman, or man

    We see every memento, each photo, each card
    As we realise daily, that this is so hard

    Though we knew it was coming, no difference that makes,
    We must press on regardless, whatever it takes

    So, together, we'll post, cos on here we're united
    In a club, no one wanted to find they're invited

    Where the membership, sadly, though hardly surprising
    Is thriving and active, and constantly rising

    Where we praise everybody for each small success
    Where we know people mean it, when they say "God Bless"

    Where sometimes we post cos our hearts are just breaking
    Over something that's definitely not of our making

    I don't know your phone number, I don't know where you live
    So reality cuddles I just cannot give

    But, through cyber space, I just want you to hear
    That although they're not "real", all my hugs are sincere

    We're not very touch/feely as a family but sometimes, it's all you need so cyber ones are great. xxx
