Valentine's Day is not only for those in romantic relationships. It can also be a time for friends to tell each other how much they mean to one another. What a blessing it is to have someone by your side through all life's ups and downs. Share these poems with your friends - with the people who've celebrated your triumphs and held your hand through the tears.

    My True Friend

    Pricelessness Of A True Friend

    in True Friend Poems

    You always answer when I call
    And help me up if I should fall,
    But you never complain at all,
    My true friend.

    You confront me when I am wrong
    But will never scold me for long,
    Instead, you try to keep me strong,
    My true friend.

    You know the funny things to say
    To make me laugh my fears away.
    Like the sun, you brighten my day,
    My true friend.

    You see in me gifts I deny
    And urge me to give things a try.
    You spread for me my wings to fly,
    My true friend.

    You always perceive what I need
    And offer it before I plead.
    Just like a book, my mind you read,
    My true friend.

    You value little things I do
    But won't brag of what you do too.
    How can I ever repay you,
    My true friend?

    And greatest of all I have found
    When times are tough and I'm down,
    You are the one who sticks around,
    My true friend.

    Strength Of A Friendship

    in Best Friend Poems

    You are my best friend; you belong in my heart.
    We go through ups and downs, but still nothing can tear us apart.
    I know you as a sister, and I will always care.
    Love, respect, and trust are the things we share.

    I know you as a person; I especially know you as a friend.
    Our friendship is something that will never end.
    Right now, this second, this minute, this day,
    Our sisterhood is here, is here to stay.

    My friendship with you is special and true.
    When we are together, we stick like glue.
    When I'm in the darkness that needs some light,
    When you're by my side, I know things are all right.

    Our friendship is so strong; it breaks down bars.
    Our friendship is also bright, like the sun and the stars.
    If we were in a competition for friendships, we would get a gold,
    Because responsibility and cleverness are the keys we hold.

    I met you as a stranger, took you as a friend.
    I hope our long friendship will never end.
    Our friendship is like a magnet; it pulls us together,
    Because no matter where we are, our friendship will last forever!

    You Were There

    in Special Friend Poems

    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.

    Thanking A Friend For Being There During Tough Times

    in Best Friend Poems

    A friend like you is hard to find,
    one that touches you deep inside.
    You've given me strength to carry on,
    you've offered your hand to hold on.
    When times are tough, I know you're there
    to offer support and show you care.
    If not for you, I would have drowned,
    but you help keep me on solid ground.
    I believe you were sent from the man above
    because he knows the strength of your love.
    You show that love in so many ways.
    It helps me get through my darkest of days.
    So for that, I write this poem for you
    and tell you from my heart, THANK YOU!

    Will You Ever?

    • Published: February 2006

    in Special Friend Poems

    I don't think you will
    Ever fully understand
    How you've touched my life
    And made me who I am.

    I don't think you could ever know
    Just how truly special you are,
    That even on the darkest nights
    You are my brightest star.

    You've allowed me to experience
    Something very hard to find,
    Unconditional love that exists
    In my body, soul, and mind.

    I don't think you could ever feel
    All the love I have to give,
    And I'm sure you'll never realize
    You've been my will to live.

    You are an amazing person,
    And without you I don't know where I'd be.
    Having you in my life
    Completes and fulfills every part of me.

    Will You Ever?

    May your blessings be many
    and your troubles be few.
    And may you feel God's presence
    in all you say and do.

    May your family surround you
    and give you reasons to smile.
    May your friends and loved ones
    go with you an extra mile.

    May you know joy and gladness
    and have a life of peace.

    I Am Always There - You're Never Alone

    • By Ashley Becker

    in Best Friend Poems

    When you're feeling down and blue,
    And life is being cruel to you,
    Just remember you're not on your own.
    I'm always there; you're never alone.
    You might not be able to see my face,
    As hard as you look around the place,
    But close your eyes and think of me,
    And before you know it, there will be me.
    Keep me in the midst of your mind,
    And life will seem easier, I think you'll find,
    So when life gets too dark to bear,
    Just close your eyes and I will be there.

    You helped me to get better

    You listened to my problems
    in a kind and caring way,
    and without you,
    I may not be smiling today.
    Thank you.

    I trust you with my secrets
    that no one has been told.
    I trust you with my feelings, and I'll remember your words
    until I'm grey and old.
    Thank you.

    This person means the world to me! She's a close friend who knows all there is about me! She isn't judgmental, she isn't mean; she simply understands and is there to help everyone through everything.

    Take My Hand And Never Let Go

    • By Gianna Nicole
    • Published: November 2010

    in Friends Forever Poems

    You took my hand and showed me the way
    when I was blinded by unfortunate fate.
    You took my hand and prayed with me
    while my troubles quickly faded away.
    You took my hand and dried my tears
    when I cried over it all.
    You took my hand and helped me understand
    when I questioned our Almighty One.
    You took my hand and made me promise
    I'd never walk alone again.
    You took my hand and mended my friendship
    when I was too stubborn to say anything.
    You took my hand and made me laugh
    when we remembered our funny mistakes.
    You took my hand and made me see
    that God has a special plan for me.
    Now take my hand and never let go,
    because our friendship means more than you'll ever know!!

    Dedicated to: K.J.

    A True Friend

    in Thank You Friend Poems

    My life has not been easy.
    Hard times, I've seen my share.
    Through trials and tribulations,
    you were always standing there.

    You lent an ear and gave a hand
    and always seemed to understand.

    At times when I was torn and weak
    and could not bear the stress,
    you always gave your all to me,
    never any less.

    To you I'm always grateful for all that we have shared,
    for standing right beside me, showing that you cared.

    We are friends.
    I've got your back,
    And you have mine.
    I'll help you out
    Anytime!
    To see you hurt,
    To see you cry,
    Makes me weep
    And wanna die.
    If you agree
    To never fight,
    It wouldn't matter
    Who's wrong or right.
    If a broken heart
    Needs a mend,
    I'll be right there
    Till the end.
    If your cheeks are wet
    From drops of tears,
    Don't worry,
    Let go of your fears.
    Hand in hand
    Love is sent.
    We'll be friends

    To My Treasured Friend

    Poem About What True Friendship Means

    in Best Friend Poems

    Though there is gold up in the mountains,
    Lovely pearls deep in the sea,
    Those treasures do not mean as much
    As your friendship means to me.
    While diamonds may be beautiful,
    And worth a lot of money,
    They cannot give a warm embrace
    Or share jokes we think are funny.
    I know it's true some people
    Will collect much priceless art,
    Yet I have never seen a picture
    That showed me a loving heart.
    So I don't need to spend a fortune
    To have what means the most to me.
    Knowing that I have had your friendship
    Will be a treasured memory.

    Best friends are angels
    That God sent along.

    All the pain and suffering
    Will be too much for my heart.

    Brotherly Love

    in Best Friend Poems

    You have a gentle heart and a caring soul.
    You use affectionate words in order to extol.
    You are a true treasure encased in my heart,
    A bond so strong, it will never depart.

    You easily bring out a piece of me
    That proves so difficult for others to see.
    You lift my spirits and fade my tears.
    You give me a friendship that withstands and perseveres.

    We are individuals who don’t want to do it alone,
    So we use laughter and kindness as our cornerstone.
    We support one another to grow separately,
    While nurturing our friendship ever so tenderly.

    I could not have imagined what you would mean to me
    When our friendship was new,
    But now I can honestly say I’d be completely
    Lost without you.

    I invite you to search my heart so you can find
    A philia love for you that is pure and divine.
    A gift to my heart you will always be.
    My companionship is forever yours; that I guarantee.

    Friendship Is The Best Ship Of All

    in Best Friend Poems by Teens

    Friendship is priceless
    And can never be forgotten.
    Friendship is timeless
    And never rotten.

    It takes more than hugs and kisses
    To be a real friend.
    The nature of friendship
    Requires a blend.

    The road to a happy life
    May sometimes make us stumble.
    But to have a friend to give us a hand
    Teaches us to be humble.

    Good friends are hard to find,
    Hard to lose,
    And impossible to forget,
    But when they fly away,
    Your anger turns to regret.

    Sometimes in life we need a special person
    To listen while we talk.
    A special person who will not discourage or judge
    But encourage us as we walk.

    Friends are there
    To help you along.
    The journey through friendship
    Is always long.

    In life,
    There are big ships,
    And there are small ships,
    But the best ship of all
    Is friendship.
