Poem on Friendship

Sometimes we forget to tell the people that we love most how precious they are, but it's never too late.

Our Friendship

© Marcia M. Griffith
As I think of our friendship, I begin to see
Mere words can't describe what you mean to me.
When this cold, hard world has me lonesome and blue
I look up to see my angel, my sweet angel, you.

You dry the tears that fall from my eyes.
You bring me sunshine to brighten my sky.
You rescue me when I'm scared and alone
And take my hand to lead me home.

No matter the miles that keep us apart
We're always together in each other's hearts
Sometimes we take for granted, I fear,
The ones who are so close and dear.

We get so caught up in life and things we must do
Sometimes we forget to stop and say I love you.
If ever you felt I forgot or didn't care
Let me stop right now, my true feelings I'll share.

You're the sun in my sky, the bed where I lie.
You're the home where I'm safe, the field where I play.
You're everything I am, everything I do.
So what I am saying is I LOVE YOU!

  • I met Joyce when we were both young mothers,. We went through measles and mumps , potty training. We would moan about our lives and played the "what if we won some money" wish but we never did. Then when my daughter Eleanor was born profoundly deaf and had to make numerous journeys to the hospital, Joyce would come with me, the years passed, bringing with it gray times and bright times. Our friendship became stronger when she wanted to leave her husband, when she had a nervous break down together we faced them. When my daughter married and had a baby William, Joyce was his god mother, and she was there as we buried both the baby and Eleanor dying together in a house fire. Her strength was there mourning together, The phone rang it was her daughter "Moms dead she sobbed" I thought the bottom had fallen out of my world. I miss you so much my dear friend but love never dies and I will always love you thank you

  • This poem made me think of the wonderful friendship I have with my best friend Louise. She has always been at my side through all the good and bad times. I do not know what I would have done without knowing that there was someone in this world that really loved me for the person that I am. She helped me get through so many hard times in my life and it is because of Louise that I was able to lift my chin and start believing that my life will get better especially knowing I have a friend like her at my side. Thank You Louise for being my best friend ever. I hope it never stops.
