55 Valentine’s Day Poems To Share With Friends

  1. 1. Friends For Life

    • By Angelica N. Brissett
    • Published: July 2007

    If you want to stay best friends, this is a recipe for success.

    in Best Friend Poems

    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
    Till the end!

    Poem For Saying Thanks To A Great Friend

    Best friends are angels
    That God sent along.
    They always stay beside you
    Whenever things go wrong.

    I'm glad that God blessed me
    With a good friend such as you.
    A person to be there,
    A person to get me through.

    Never turn away from me.
    I can't bear to be apart.
    All the pain and suffering
    Will be too much for my heart.

    You are my best friend,
    The one who brightens my day.
    The one who cheers me up,
    The one who's here to stay.

    I wrote this poem about my best friends, Jazz and Alexis. I can truly say they are amazing.

    in Best Friend Poems

    Strength Of A Friendship

    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!

  5. 4. Will You Ever?

    • By Kaitlyn M. Yawn
    • Published: February 2006

    This poem is about the great impact that friends can have on each other's lives.

    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?

  7. 5. You Were There

    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.

    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.

    A true friend is a rare gem, and I'm blessed with one - the inspiration for this poem. If you also have that special friend, I hope this helps you celebrate him/her. You may hum the good old "My Mother" tune as you read. Hope you enjoy it.

    Pricelessness Of A True Friend

    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.

    Rhyming Friendship Poem

    The friendship we have is so rare to find.
    We hate to see each other in a bind.
    We have made each other laugh so hard we've cried.
    We feel each other's pain if we are hurt inside.
    We always can find the right words to say
    To help us get through any dreadful day.
    We have told our darkest secrets with feeling no shame,
    We will tell each other the truth, even if we are to blame.
    Thinking of you not being here makes me feel so sad.
    We will have to look back on our crazy memories to make us glad.
    The miles between us can't keep us apart,
    Because we will keep each other close at heart.

    • By Bea Williams
    • Published: July 2011

    I've always felt that true friendship is very important. The old saying, "A friend in need is a friend indeed," goes a long way. True friends will always be there for you, and you can always count on them, so my favorite thing to write about is friendship.

    in True Friend Poems

    Friends are far, friends are near.
    Friends will be there to lend an ear.
    They listen, laugh, and care,
    But most of all, they're always there.

    Through thick and thin, up and down,
    Your true friends are always around.
    For treats, hugs, and real big smiles,
    They'll travel to you from several miles.

    They'll always be there to hold you tight.
    Anytime, no matter if it's day or night.
    You really know when your friends are sincere
    When they always show up to lend their ear.

    Thanking A Friend For Being There During Tough Times

    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!

    To me, you're like an angel, sent by God above,
    To cleanse my soul of sadness and fill it with love.
    You are my inspiration, and I want to thank you,
    For without you, I don't know what I would do.

    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.

    in a kind and caring way,
    and without you,
    I may not be smiling today.

    Poem About What True Friendship Means

    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.

    Poem Thanking A Friend For Support

    You're a very special person.
    I'm glad that you're my friend,
    For when I need a little advice,
    You always have some to lend.

    You help me when I am troubled,
    Feeling down and out-
    I never have to say what's wrong.
    You seem to know what I'm all about.

    I can always tell you my feelings
    Without having you put me down.
    You're the person I can turn to
    When no one else is around.

    I can cry on your shoulder
    When things are going wrong.
    You give me a smile
    And help me to be strong.

    in Friends Forever Poems

    We have something that holds us together,
    Something that made us both better,
    Something called being a friend.
    It makes the fun never end,
    And it helps me to know that when
    I am down and blue,
    Because you're my friend
    I can count on you.
    We run through life without a care.
    Would anyone try to part us?
    They wouldn't dare
    And when the time comes for me to go,
    I really want for you to know
    That even though my life has come to an end
    I will never stop being your friend.

  22. 20. Friendship Is The Best Ship Of All

    When someone stumbles through life not knowing where to go, their friends are always there for each other. We should never trade friends (and family) for anything.

    Valerie M. is eleven years old. She wrote this poem for a Poems and Quotes project for her class. This poem is dedicated to her best friends: Aliya, Viviene, Chris, and Brandon.

    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.

    • Published: February 2006

    When love and friendship coincide, this is truly a blessed event.

    in True Friend Poems

    You're the one I most admire
    with great intentions and loving desires.

    Passion and trust and knowing that you care
    brings a lifetime of happiness for us to share.

    Being so gentle, understanding, and kind
    brings comfort, faith, and a joy that shines.

    Tears and laughter are feelings that are rare,
    but a true heart shall never despair.

    Love is unique in its very own way,
    taking risks, and challenges day by day.

    But when a heart is made of gold, there is so much to share,
    like joy, laughter, and a friendship that's there...

    So I give you my heart as a token of love,
    from one friend to another and the heavens above.

    So take my heart and cherish it too,
    'cause there is no us without you!

    • By Shea And Clare
    • Published: October 2008

    I couldn't have better friends. Thanks Clare, Sarah, John, Alayna, and Will. Especially Sarah and Clare, who encouraged my love for poetry.

    in Special Friend Poems

    Friends are there when you're feeling blue
    And you're feeling down
    Their there to make you smile
    And to turn your frown around

    They'll be there for your first date
    And they'll be there for you to tell
    And when that boy breaks your heart
    She'll tell you its just as well

    She's there for you
    Throughout the years
    To share the laughs
    And to share the tears

    She fights with you sometimes
    But you always make it through
    You can't stay mad at her
    She means too much to you

    So when you have a good friend
    Remember to keep her nearby
    Because the best thing you can have
    Is a good friend by your side

    A true friend is a blessing in your life. This has been written for my best 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.

    This poem was inspired by my best friend. I was going through a rough time and she stuck with me every step of the way. She held my hand through it all and told me everything was going to be all right. This really showed me how great of a friend she really is, and it showed me that no matter what she will always have my back. To this day, we still remain very close. We are truly sisters from different misters.

    in True Friend Poems

    You are there when I need you.
    You always have my back.
    You uplift me when I'm sad.
    You always make me smile.
    You cry when I cry.
    You smile when I smile.
    You laugh when I laugh.
    You never judge me.
    You always keep my secrets.
    You brighten up my day.
    You always show you love me.
    You are my sister from another mister.
    You are awesomely fantastical.
    Who am I talking about?
    You, because you are my BBFFAA

    What could be better than a friendship with some romance mixed in?

    in Thank You Friend Poems

    It started out as just a hug and grew into a kiss,
    A friendship that had blossomed to more than I could wish.
    You are my shining star at night; you help me find my way.
    You are my inspiration directing me each day.
    See, when I fall and need a hand, you always pick me up,
    And when I cry and need a friend, you're there no matter what.

    I met you as a stranger, then took you as my friend.
    Our friendship is something that will never end.
    When I was in darkness that needed some light,
    You came to me and hugged me tight.

    You took my hands and dried my tears.
    You woke me up to end my fears.
    You took my hand and made me see
    That God has a special plan for me.

    You helped me laugh
    When I was sad.
    You made me tough
    When I felt bad.

    • By Joann Foley
    • Published: October 2017

    Philia love is a love between close friends. It is a generous and affectionate love. Philia means brotherly or platonic love in Ancient Greek.

    in Best Friend Poems

    Brotherly Love

    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.

    If you told me to describe a true friend,

    If you say you needed a friend like me,
    Then I'd never say goodbye.
    If someone tried to put you down,

    The Characteristics Of A Friend

    A friend is a person
    who has always has your back,
    a person
    who has faith in you and says that you can.

    A friend is a person
    who points you onward, instead of leading you askew,
    a person
    who gives you hope to see the journey through.

    A friend is a person
    who helps you up when you've fallen,
    a person
    who cheers you up when you're sullen.

    A friend is a person
    who even though all have passed,
    still cheers you on,
    even if you're in last.

    A friend is a person
    who remembers what you knew,
    a person
    who stands by you and forgets every feud.

    You'll Always Be My Friend

    We have been friends for not so long
    We've learned to trust and shared a song
    We used to laugh and used to cry
    We've been together and learned to fly

    Those sweet memories we both have shared
    I will always treasure, I will always care
    For all those moments we've been together
    Are oh so precious, more precious than jasper

    I wish no hardships and pains arrived
    That blocks this feeling and forever deprived
    For if I loose the inspiration you've shared
    My heart in agony, forever will suffer

    With all my heart, I do sincerely pray
    That this precious friendship forever will stay
    Deep in my soul, a vow I will offer
    You'll always be my friend, from now until forever.

    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

    A good friend is someone
    who cares about you.

    who you can talk to
    and trust with your problems
    in not telling anyone else.

    This is to our angel, Mrs. Land. She's been around for about 5 years now and she is always there whenever we need her. She has helped us out so much.

  49. 47. That's What Friends Are For

    A friend of mine inspired me to write this poem. When I was entering kindergarten, I thought a friend was just someone who plays with you and is always following you, but I was totally wrong. I met someone sweet in fifth grade and we became BFFs. And I'm glad we did, so I hope you enjoy this poem and think about it.

    The Power Of Friendship

    A friend is not just someone who hangs out with you.
    A friend is someone who cares about you.
    A friend is someone who tells you the truth.
    A friend is someone who doesn't make you feel blue.

    A friend is there for you any day.
    A friend is someone who makes you say hooray.
    A friend is someone who leaves you an open door.
    That's what friends are always for.

    Knowing that there is someone to rely on in a crises makes all the difference.

    in Best Friend Poems

    Poem About Friends

    Whenever you feel sad and that no one is around
    Always know I will be around.
    When you think that nobody cares
    I hope you know that I will always care.
    When you feel like no one is by your side
    I'll be there even if the tide is high
    So don't let me catch you saying
    You have no one and that no one is around
    Wake up get out of this haze
    I'll always be your friend forever and always.

    Being a best friend means that I can be there for you even when you can't be there for me.

    in Best Friend Poems

    I thank you right now
    for being my friend.
    No strings attached, no being
    condemned.
    Taking me in with little or lot.
    Unconditional: a word
    this world has forgotten.
    You hear me out
    when I need to talk.
    Hanging in there,
    no matter how rough the walk.
    And all the times in the past
    and those to still come.
    Bringing my spirits up
    When down they've been run.
    So if I seem distant,
    cold or not here,
    remember inside
    I'm thankful you care.

    This poem is for my best friend. She is the greatest person on this earth. But lately I haven't been treating her as a best friend. This, I hope, will make her feel better about our friendship.

    in Thank You Friend Poems

    Thank you for the memories.
    I really love your company.

    My best friend is the one that knows me best,
    The one I can keep, the one I can trust.
    I compliment you, you compliment me.
    You're the greatest person that can be.

    You're admirable,
    And you're desirable.

    Your laugh makes my day.
    You're beautiful in every way.
    You put up with me when I am in a bad mood.
    You never give me attitude.

    I love it when we hang out.
    We hang out pretty much every week,
    And when we do, we act like freaks,
    Because you're a happy, bubbly, hyper girl,
    And I am so happy you let me in your friendship world. :)

    Thank You For The Memories
