Best Friend Poem

A Poem For Best Friends

This is a poem for best friends.


I still remember the first day we met
We were too shy to say much at all
It's funny to think back to that time
Because now we're having a ball!

They say that true friendship is rare
An adage that I believe to be true
Genuine friendship is something that I cherish
I am so lucky to have met you.

Our bond is extremely special
It is unique in its own way
We have something irreplaceable
I love you more and more each day.

We've been through so much together
In so little time we've shared
I will never forget all the moments
that you've shown me how much you cared.

Friends are forever
Especially the bond that you and I possess
I love your fun-filled personality
Somehow you never fail to impress.

The world could use more people like you
it would certainly be a better place
I love everything about you
You are someone I could never replace.

You are always there for me
When my spirits need a little lift
I cannot thank you enough for that
You are truly an extraordinary gift.

You are everything to me and more
I could never express that enough
Life is such a treacherous journey, and
Without you it would be even more tough.

Our story will continue to grow
With each passing day
Because I trust that with you by my side
Everything will always be Okay.

You are so dear to me
You know I will love you until the end
I will always be there for you, and
You will always (and forever) be my best friend.

  • cool
    touches me
    reminds me of one of my friend
    who is my TRUE FRIEND but not best friends
    when I fight with her I cannot stop thinking about her
    until I said I am sorry then I was able to concentrate on studies

  • I lived in Vevay, Indiana throughout elementary until about the middle of 2nd grade and then I moved to Milan, Indiana and then I moved back to Vevay in the time period of a month. Then I moved to Versailles, Indiana at the end of that year. I stayed there until about the middle of fourth grade and then I moved to Florence, Kentucky. See even though I didn't move to a lot of different cities, I did move a whole lot in each city I moved to. In about the middle of 8th grade I moved back to my wonderfully, small hometown, Vevay. My childhood was pretty screwed up and I didn't remember much of it, but the one thing, or should I say person, I remembered was my bestfriend from kindergarten. See, when you remember someone after a lifetime of heartache and broken-down childhood dreams, you know they made an impact on your life and that they are important to you. Me and her are extremely close now and I'm proud to say she's my bestfriend. She will always be in my heart <3

  • Well I was a new student and I'm not usually shy but coming to a new school not knowing anyone did scare me. Then I met the most amazing person in my life and I wouldn't trade her for the world. It seems like God made her for me because we are perfect for each other. She doesn't judge me and accepts me for me. I couldn't ask for a better friend. I love you best friend for life and death

  • This reminds me of me and my best friend. She was the one who actually admitted that I was her best friend. I think much of it but now I'm crazy about her and me. I don't think she feels the same way I do but I think she does in a way. I love her to death and I hope we keep in touch for the rest of our life's because I'll always remember her as the one who 1st said I was her best friend. Ily jubilee

  • I was feeling a little down today, so I began thinking about my Best Friend, and how much I love her. I searched the Internet for a Best Friend poem and found this one. It touched me in a special, powerful way. She and I met in the 11th grade. I was the new girl at school and she befriended me. We've been together ever since. We are now in our early 50s. It would take a book to explain all the wonderful journeys we've shared. I just want MKMC to know how much I love her and how special she is.

  • Me and my bestfriend have been together since nursery! When I was in reception, I had been moved to a different class permanently. Although she was my best friend, we never knew each other that well. I made new best friends in my other class but not as better as my first: Maisha. When I was in Y3, because of my constant chatter in class, my teacher had moved me back to my old class. I'm still in this class now and I'm in Y6. In Y4, it was my first year back in my old class and the only person who actually knew me from heart was Maisha. We didn't really know each other at the beginning of my journey in Y4 but as time went on, in Y4 we became the best of friends once again. We were reunited! YAY! Right now I just cannot live without her! I don't know what I would do without her. Although my friends in my other class are still my best friends, no one can ever break my trust into loving Maisha as a big sister to me! I <3 her with all my heart! Best Friends Forever!!

  • Oh my god I love this poem! I have this best friend that always put a smile on my face and always teased me. I just love him to death. I think about him everyday about the great times together. I honestly will never forget those moments. I find it funny how when we first met it was really awkward and then we became the best of buddies. It's summer now and I can't see him anymore. He texts me a lot, but since I was gone and my phone didn't work he erased his text messenger which means I can't contact him. I'll ask one of my friends. He just makes me smile and feel more confident in myself and helped me become the person I love in myself today. I love him so much I just wish I could savor those moments. Unfortunately it will never happen again because we have different classes and never get to see each other, which makes me sad, but also thankful to God for having the opportunity to have this kind of relationship. I just love him and I want him to know that.

    Love you Emmie <3

  • Love this poem <3. My best friend is a boy named David lots of people say why a boy?? It's because I think that there are little girls to whom you can tell your secrets and much more and because I had two best friends who left me for others. SO and our teacher told us to write a poem about nature, best friends and so much more and I decided to write about my best friend. Well searching found this poem that touched me and wrote it down for him and read it in class. Hum the owner of this poem is so WOW! <3 love my best friend even though he's sick. LOVE You
