Special Friend Poem

As if putting a Wanted Ad in the newspaper, this poem describes what the special friend the author is looking for in a poem.

I Need A Friend

© Teresa K. Wilson
I need a friend who along with time can help my broken heart to mend.
I need a friend who can lend me their ears, someone who can dry my face of the many fallen tears.
I need a friend that can hold me tight, someone who won't let me go until made clear I am finally alright.
I need a friend who has once cried, someone who knows what it is like to feel that inside you have died.
I need a friend who can tell me it's okay, someone who knows I'm not crazy for feeling this way.
I need a friend who needs one too, I say this now because I hope that this someone I speak of turns out to be you.

  • There have been so many times in my life when I have needed a friend, someone who felt as I did, alone and oh so lonely. I found my friend in God. I have always known God is the answer to all my problems, which were many. He will also help the author of this poem. He need only to ask Him. He will answer, I promise you. His answer may not come in the way you expect, but it will come in a way that is best for you. God bless you and hang in there. It WILL get better.

  • This is by far one of the best poems I have ever read. It's a poem which I can easily relate to. I was feeling the same thing and I can see where the poet is coming from. It's a lovely poem.
    Teresa Wilson. You are awesome. I have great respect and admiration.

  • I am shunned and hated by everyone in my school, everyone one hates except for the occasional moment someone is friendly, but then they treat me horribly so they can do what I can never do...Fit in. Thank you for letting people like me know that we aren't alone in the world, I hope you find someone if not done already

  • hey thanks dear...you define my feelings that I have for my friend...he is the only one I have...I never had much friends. I had troubled family life in my childhood which led to me becoming more and more emotionally dependent upon my friends but no one seemed to care instead they took it as a foolishness on my part and same is the case till now (now my age is 25) but I am ready to do anything to have a friend. The friend that I have now supports me encourages me but he also seems my emotional overload as something crazy.....but I want him in life forever....maybe this poem can explain my feelings to him.....I need you dear

  • I am so alone and I have no friends. I get so embarrassed at school for being alone, I don't know where to go. I have my classmates that always asks me to hang out with them, but I feel that I don't belong or cope. I feel like no one understands me. Afraid to cry in front of them or even shy. I thought loneliness was great for a while, but it's really hard. One year left till I finish school, and still I have nobody. When other girls asks me whom I go with and I just say no one, but there's this girl I like so much. She's like the reason why I started coming to school with no worries about the friends thingie. Ughhh I just want to be friends with her so bad.
