True Friend Poem

I've always felt that true friendship is very important. The old saying "a friend in need is a friend indeed" goes a long way. True friends will always be there for you and you can always count on them, so my favorite thing to write about is always friendship.

A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

© Bea Williams
Friends are far, friends are near,
Friends will be there to lend an ear,
They listen, laugh, and care,
But most of all, they're always there,
Through thick and thin, up and down,
Your true friends are always around,
For treats, hugs and real big smiles,
They'll travel to you from several miles,
They'll always be there to hold you tight,
Anytime, no matter if it's day or night,
You really know when your friends are sincere,
When they always show up to lend their ear.

  • I was looking for a poem for my class assembly on friendship so I went through all the poems but this poem just touched my heart as I wanted such a poem itself which was so meaningful and would be the best poem on the site. So this is my story and I really liked the poem.

  • My dearest friend Simi I know for only 2 years is now moving away to Pennsylvania and leaving me behind she's going to a new school and she'll make new friends. I hope that this will soon end because I don't ever want to lose her. I want her here and everywhere but you can not always have everything you want and this time I have to let her go even though I know that this will be hard but she'll never forget me and that we shall be friends till the very end and beyond, that we will hand in hand walk the streets paved of gold.

  • I like it so much. It reminds me of my friend Ahmad whom I never saw, though he is my best friend. We always write to each other and hear each other, despite distances. Love you dear friend.

  • My best friend lives 100 miles away from me and I am unable to see her as much as we would like. My friends daughter has developed a extremely rare blood disorder and the prognosis is very sad. At the age of 22 my friends daughter is likely to develop cancer/die within the year, leaving behind a 1 year old son to be raised by his grandparents - my friend. I NEED her to know how much she means to me and that I will as always be there for here whatever the future holds. This poem hits the mark for me. Thank you!
