Broken Friendship Poem

Hoping To Mend A Broken Friendship

My story behind this poem is a true one. All this has recently happened between a friend and me. It has been a painful experience, but I have learned much from it. I have written this for Benedict, one of the best friends I have ever had and the one I fell in love with. I'm hoping we can patch things up and get back the heaven-sent friendship we both lost through our own faults. I have used similes and metaphors in this poem. Hope you enjoy this and that it inspires you!

Is hope gone?
Is friendship lost?
Am I wrong?
Or is this what true love costs?

Like the ancient days of long ago,
We were at one time best friends.
You raised me up when I was low.
We'd be together till the end.

Like the ides of eternity,
Like the sun's bright glow,
Like the flower and the bee,
Was our friendship, now flown.

You drifted and I pulled.
Harsh words came; bonds broke.
Who was wise? Who played the fool?
Too late to say; damage already spoke.

It was I who said I'd always be your friend.
You said you would strive to be a better man.
Was what we said just foolish pretend?
Or was it true-did we misunderstand?

I refuse to give up our treasure.
Although all seems lost,
I will continue to love you without measure
And win you back, whatever it costs.

Only God knows how this will end.
He alone knows how much I love you.
He knows you're my precious friend.
He knows, too, that I am sad and blue.

I come to you with an open heart and mind,
Asking you to forget everything that's bad
And to remember our friendship, blessed and kind.
Don't forsake me, don't hurt me, don't leave me sad.

I simply want to say my love for you
Is as deep as the ocean, high as the sky,
Longer than eternity, soft as the dew,
Warm as the sun, sweet as the sparrow's cry.

Don't forget me,
Love me true.
Please believe me;



I was born in Lima, Ohio, in 2000. Since I was little, I have always loved stories and even tried to write my own! My love for poetry really started when my Grandpa showed me a collection of poems that his sister wrote. Unfortunately, they were never published, but they definitely made an imprint on my heart.

When I was 12, I began writing...
