Special Friend Poem

I was going through a really hard time in my life and I honestly don't think I would be here if it weren't for my best friend. She was there for me when no one else was.

You Were There

when tears fell from my eyes
you were there to brush them away
when I was lost in confusion
you were there to say that everything would be okay
when I stood before you falling apart
you were there to lend your heart
when I felt like no one could understand
you were there to take my hand
when no one else was left to care
you were there

dedicated to: my best friend

I had lost touch with my friend Rob after H.S Graduation when I moved away for College... it seemed almost like Fate when he ended up in MD only a short drive away. Then my grandmother became ill and I moved back to the city I love, and as if no time had passed at all, after almost 7 years, Rob and I reconnected and since then we have been inseparable. He knows about my illness (psychiatric) and he never treated me any different, as a matter of fact he's the one there when the worst of it hits, and no matter how bad or how long the episode lasts he stays right by my side. I count down the hours until he gets home from work, mindlessly trying to fill my day so that the hours go by faster, but no matter what the time goes by so slow, until he gets home then it goes too fast. It never seems like we have enough time, and trying to find moments just for the two of us so I can tell him how important he is to me, it's like trying to catch smoke with my bare hands. It's been a rough year, my dear cousin was taken from us too soon, a beautiful 8 year old girl with more love in her heart than anyone else I've ever met, and a friend of mine from HS, with a rare kind of cancer he'd been fighting all his life, has finally found peace ( I Hope) as well. After losing three of the most important people in life, then my young cousin and a good friend... well I never would have made it through it all if not for my dear friend Rob. In a very literal way he is the reason I keep trying. Some people go their entire lives looking for a friend like Rob, I don't know what ragged waif like me could have done to be given such a gift, but I'll never take it for granted or throw it away.

My friend was there when I cried and when I smiled she was there when I frowned and when laughed when I was sick and in health she cares for me I care for her we are like two peas in a pot filled with joy and love

I recently went through a divorcé, and without knowing, a real good friend from Elementary school was also. We hooked up as friends again and I honestly don't know what I would do without him! He is my rock and I know he will always be there for me. I love you! R.D.M.

This poem has really touched my soul in such a way that it reminded me of my best friend whom I last saw her last year, she was the pillar of my strength, the laying box where I laid my secrets, the tissue to wipe my tears but more especially the precious friend I have ever had in life. If everything was according to me, I would build her a house in heaven so that people could see how special she is to me!

I and my bestfriend had a simple misunderstanding but it's really the start of a good fight.

Yes, very much, I lost a friend from a stupid mistake I made, it had not involved my friend, but she warned me. Thank you so much I was looking for the right thing to say!!
