Poems About Missing A Friend
Published: December 23, 2022
When friends are forced to be apart from each other for whatever length of time, it will be a difficult period for the two of them. They will be forced to go through their normal routines apart from each other. Each one may miss the qualities that the other contributed to the friendship. There is a saying that, "absence makes the heart grow fond". This may be an opportunity for each of them to realize how important each one is to the other's life. They will miss each other, and long for the time when they can be together again.
Find solace and connection through our collection of poems about missing a friend. These poems explore the emotions and feelings of longing for a friend who is no longer present in our lives and the enduring power of friendship
10 Poems Of Longing: Expressing The Pain Of Missing A Friend
My best friend has gone away.
No more will we laugh and play,
No more games and whispered secrets shared.
No more comfort knowing she cared.
My best friend is dead and gone,
Never again to tag along
With me to the park or mall
Or have a sleepover or do anything at all.
I wish that I could have said goodbye,
Told her I would miss her; somehow I must try.
I have so much left to say.
I know! I will write my goodbye and send it her way.
In a note written down, then sent by fire and flame,
In a bottle on the sea, or a gift by her grave,
Or perhaps I will whisper it, and send it on a prayer
And imagine her reading it and knowing I care.
My best friend has died, nothing that can change.
But at least now I have said goodbye.
Farewell, dear friend; I will hold your memory in my heart
So as long as I live, we are never truly apart.Featured Shared Story
It's been a super bad start to this year. It seems like every week I have had to say goodbye to those I considered so dear. Many I didn't even get to talk to one last time. It's put me in a...
I hope you really know
How much I truly care
Because when I'm away from you
It's like something isn't there
Like on this great vacation
Where I'm having so much fun
It feels like part of me is missing
I wish that I could share this sun
I've been wishing I could be with you
Each and every day
Because I trust that with you by my side
Everything will always be okay
I want to share this awesome experience
With you and only you
If I could, I'd capture every moment
So you could live this, too
In a box with sandy beaches
I'd put the perfect skies of blue
And I'd bottle up the endless ocean
To bring it back for you
I love you like a sister
I hope that's something you'll never forget
And I'll say I'm sorry now
If I ever do something we'll regret
You don't know how much I missed you
And for that, I'm glad to be back
Now I know for certain
Forever our friendship will stay intact.Featured Shared Story
I have a best friend, Zarnab. Our summer break started, and I miss her so much. Even though we chat all the time, I still miss her so much
in School Poems
We are going to different high schools
I know it will be hard
we were best friends
and now we are ripped apart
I remember the good days we had
throughout these three long years
you were there when I was sad
even when I was in tears
But now it's all changed
we can't be together anymore
no more notebooks to exchange
or laughter to adore
No more inside jokes to hear
or gossip in the hall
now we have high school to fear
and that's the worst of them all
I will never forget that smile of yours
and how it made me glad
just remember you'll always be
the bestest friend I've ever hadFeatured Shared Story

Another month has come,
But you're still so far away.
You're always in my heart
Each and every day.
I'm sorry I couldn't be here
For when you needed me most.
I wish time would hurry,
But it goes so slow.
Phone calls aren't enough.
I need the real you,
The one who supports me,
My sister, my glue.
We've been through so much together
In so little time we've shared,
I will never forget all the moments
That you've shown me you cared.
I know it's hard, but my time will come soon.
Keep smiling, beautiful, 'cause it looks good on you!
So until I see you when my time comes to an end,
Stay strong bub, love your best friend.
I miss you so much.Featured Shared Story
This how I feel about my BFF who moved far away and I haven't seen her for a long time, I really miss her!
We've always been together,
we did everything with laughter.
We thought it was forever.
When I was in danger
you knew how to ease my fear.
You were always there to be my savior.
At first we were strangers,
until we became closer,
and now we are together.
But time flows like a river.
it became complicated and faster,
until we realized that we're older.
And that is what is keeping us apart.
I was here,
and you were there.
I know we still care,
but our friendship slowly fades in the air.
how can it be so unfair?
Can "our past" be also called "our future"?
because I don't want to surrender
the memories we've shared together.Featured Shared Story
I had friends that I have known for 7 years. In 8th grade, two of them were getting closer and blocking me out. They mostly talk to me if one or the other is busy. The one of them made a...
I cherished the times when we were together
I hoped that it would last forever
but now there's nothing I can do
today I'll say my goodbye to you
Though it'll be long before I see you again
I know you're happy there, safe in heaven
and though I'll miss you and love you that much
I know God's love for you, I cannot match
Time will pass, it would lessen the pain
but my feelings for you, they will stay the same
I know you're watching there, up above
I wished you'll read this poem, signed with all my love...
I'll say my farewell
not to cry, I will not swear
I will miss you...Featured Shared Story
Good-bye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart's the memory, and there you'll always be.
As I lay here on my bed listening to everybody talking
my head is spinning with thoughts of you.
I hear your voice throughout the day
telling me you love me and that I'm the one for you.
Over and over again I hear your voice
and feel your arms wrapped around me
but when I look around you're not here.
I'm wishing you will realize soon that I do care.
Wishing and hoping that someday soon we will be together again.
I love you so much
and I miss seeing you every day
and being next to you at night.
You never come to see me anymore
so I lay here in my bed crying
because I miss you so much and I love you too.
I wish I could see you like I used to
but you won't let that happen and neither will she.
I try to talk to you but you walk away.
Tears form in my eyes and I start to cry.
They say to forget about you but I don't know how.
I miss hearing you say that you love me.
I miss spending time with you every day.
I can't seem to get you out of my head.
I love you baby and I miss you too.Featured Shared Story
I lost my bestfriend and my soulmate to drinking and drugs I didn't have to be there for him but I loved him so much that I couldn't walk away. I watched him take his last breath and that was...
Every time I see you,
my heart melts with happiness.
You make me laugh.
You make my heart sing.
Every time you talk to me,
I feel speechless.
Your voice is soft and sweet to me.
It calms me in the worst of times.
Every time you smile at me,
I want to smile too.
You brighten a dark day.
You make the sun come out from behind the clouds in my heart.
Now, you're gone.
My heart is broken.
Everything is crashing down on me.
I need someone to take this weight off my shoulders.
I need someone to dry my tears.
Why did you have to go?
I need you.
I need your love.
Life seems impossible without you.
You are my sunshine.
Now, the rain is pouring down.
The clouds are black.
A storm is approaching.
Without you I am nothing.
I need you to tell me that you love me.
To hold me in your arms again.
I need your comfort.
Even though you are gone.
Even though you have moved on,
I will always love you.
You will stay forever in my heart.Featured Shared Story

My friend, I miss you.
I miss hearing your voice and seeing you smile,
Just being with you and hanging out a while.
I miss getting your texts
your e-mails, phone calls and letters.
I always pray to God that things get better
and you come back.
I miss you.Featured Shared Story

The bars between us keep us apart.
The bars between us can't keep you out of my heart.
The bars between us create hugs we have to keep.
The bars between us make me weak.Featured Shared Story
