True Friend Poem

The meaning of true friendship. Dedicated to Kimberly

Friendship That Never Ends

© Kelly
I remember my first day of k-5,
When I sat there and cried for my mom,
You came over and sat next to me,
And weíve been best friends ever since.

Iím the luckiest girl alive to have a friend like you.
Youíre one of the nicest people I know.
Friends like you are one in a billion.
I canít believe God blessed me with a friend like you.

We lost contact for a few years,
But that didnít stop our friendship.
I remember that October day
When you showed up in my driveway.
I couldnít believe it was you.
I was so happy to see you,
And you were happy to see me.
That was one of the best days of my life.

Iíve had lots of friends over the years.
They came and went, but you never left.
Youíre still here, even after eleven years.
All those other ďfriendsĒ taught me the meaning of a true friend.
They never really cared what went on in my life.
They just turned and walked away when things didnít go their way.

Anybody who doesnít want to be your friend,
Just hasnít taken the time to get to know you.
Because if they had, they would want to be
Your friend forever and ever, until the end of time.

I hope you know how much you mean to me.
Youíre the sister that God forgot to give me.
You understand me like nobody else,
And youíre the one person who I know will
Always be there to turn my tears into a smile.

I will always be there to turn your tears into a smile.
When you need a shoulder to cry on,
A hug to make you feel better,
Or someone to listen to your problems,
All you have to do is call, because I know youíd do the same for me.

If thereís ever a time when you feel like no one cares,
Just remember Iím the one person who will always care.
Nothing is ever going to stop us from being friends,
Because Iím not going to let that happen.

  • I have a friend who is the best, I guess he is the brother that God forgot to give me. Even though he now lives in CA, he still calls, emails and even comes to New York to see me. I'm hoping that after much therapy I shall be able to travel to CA to see his new apartment. We have a special love that no man or woman can stop and yes we are the Best of friends guy and girl forever.

  • Because my friends abandoned me. I have 5 girlfriends since that I have known since kindergarten. We have always done everything together. Then I got sick and was put in the hospital and the medication they used caused me to become deaf. I am now going in for 2nd hip operation and at first they would check up on me and now I never hear a word from any of them. It makes me from very sad to very mad. They left me when I needed them most.

  • I first met my best friend when I was in grade five. Ever since we have been best friends. We fought many times. Our friendship was so complicated, but now we take every step to stop those things from ruining our life. I just have a little thing to say to her you are greatest friend ever. I'm proud 3>3:):):)
