Saying Goodbye To A Friend Poem

Saying goodbye to an old friend. Dedicated to Heather Barbieri.

Through The Years

© Emily
You helped me laugh
you dried my tears
because of you I have no fears
Together we live
together we grow
teaching each other what we must know
You came in my life and I was blessed
I love you friend
you are the best
Release my hand and say good-bye
please my friend don't you cry
I promise you this it's not the end
'cause like I said you're my friend

  • In year 3 my best friend and I did everything together then one day I was sick so I couldn't come to school so when I was away a person told lies about me to her and she still doesn't talk me and I'm in year 7 now. I don't know what she told her but I really miss us doing things together. :( :( :(

  • I love my best friend so much. It's only been two years but she's got to move now. I love her so much. The best thing is we are neighbors and we do everything together. I don't know if I will be able to survive when she leaves. I bet there will be a flood from all our tears. I Love you Emily!!!!!!!!

  • In year 3 I met this amazing girl she was from America and she was so nice. We are now at the end of year 8 and we are still friends. About 4 weeks ago she dropped a bomb shell she is moving back to America. I will miss her so much and never forget her. This poem reminded me that we will always be friends!

  • You see I had a best friend and she died when I was young, I haven't and never will forget her but I had to move to a different country sob. I met new people and learnt English. I also have cool friends that understand me but I will never forget her because she was not just a god friend but a good sister too, if I could see her once, I would first hug her then tell her I love her.

  • I had a friend which I met in the net only. We're friends for at most 3 years now. He is a good friend to me. He's always there to cheer me up when I'm sad. He's always find time for us to talk though it's through yahoo and through sending sms to each other. He knows everything about me. He's the only person whom I can tell all my secrets in life.. and now I feel so lonely and sad coz the constant communication that we have before is different from now because he's about to work in a cruise by 20 of June. So we don't have time to talk everyday due to his new world of work. I'll be missing you my dear chef..

  • I had a best friend 5 years ago named Jessica. She was my best friend and I thought I was lucky to have her. One day she left the school without me knowing and I never talk to her because I don't know anything about her or how to contact her.
    Sometimes I think of her and get a bit upset.
