Inspirational Friend Poem

Poem About What Friends Will Do For Each Other

I wrote this poem after seeing this one picture. It had a guy sitting down and looking down, and a girl sitting next to him. The guy was saying, "I'm all alone," and the girl was saying, "I'm here." The guy was completely unaware of the girl's presence, as he wasn't looking up. This poem is from the girl's perspective and how she feels. She must have felt so sad from being neglected day after day by the boy. But even though it was sad, she still would have stayed with him, until the very end.

By Your Side


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2014 with permission of the Author.

If you feel there's nothing else to do,
If you think no one's here for you,
Turn your head and look at me,
Because by your side I'll always be.

Through today, unto tomorrow,
I'll help you get through this sorrow.
Holding your hand, right by your side,
Together we can spread our wings and fly.

Away from this terrible place,
To a land where happiness is all that we'll face.
Together, forever, just you and I,
Lost in happiness, side by side.

But, alas, it's all just a dream,
As you hang here, in front of me,
So I step up and brace for the fall,
By your side, flying once more.
