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

© Emily Robinson
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

  • 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 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.
