Farewell To My Best Friend Poem

Carol was my best friend from first grade right through our golden years. We shared many happy times and many sad times. She was the best friend that I have ever had, and I wrote this poem for her family. I will never forget Carol - she was a wonderful friend.

Farewell To Carol

Farewell my friend, you're leaving.
It's time for you to go.
Your friendship was a blessing,
And I will miss you so.
We shared so many secrets.
You brightened up my days.
You brought me so much happiness
With your kind and loving ways.
You lifted up my spirits
When I was feeling blue.
No matter what was happening,
You knew just what to do.
We ran between the raindrops
And walked beneath the sun,
Ran barefoot in the summertime
And oh, we had such fun.
Through all the ups and downs of life
The good times and the sad.
From high school days to golden years,
The best friend I ever had.
God is here to take you home.
Now you and I must part.
I love you, and forever
You will live within my heart.

My sister and I just lost a dear friend who was very sick, and my sister wanted me to find a poem for our friend to read at our friend's memorial. This poem was so beautiful and was so perfect; it describes her and expresses our feelings. Thank God for people who have the insight to know the right things to say at a time like this. Thank you, author, for this poem.

I lost a very good friend of mine just before Christmas day, I can't believe I won't see him again. Peter wanted to be a lawyer. Peter always had a smile on his face. Peter was my favourite friend. Peter was my brother, friend, colleague, classmate, and my go-to person. I will forever miss and love you, my friend.

On MAY 9, 2017, around 04:00 in early hours of the morning heaven couldn't wait for Lindo. May 8th is my birthday. I celebrated it all by myself and planned that on the coming weekend Lindo will come and celebrate with me. In the morning of the 9th I was called privately and was told that Lindo was no more. It was the saddest day ever for me. I couldn't believe it. I had to go straight to his house and see his mother and just see how she was doing. But she wasn't available. I would like to say some few words about him:

Lindo was and will ever be my best friend.
I went with him in the primary school till high school
While planning to go to tertiary, God decided to take him.
He was an honest young man.
He was dedicated in whatever he did.
His future was bright and promising.
He wanted to buy himself a HUMMER H3.
I will fulfill that dream for him.
LINDO, farewell; heaven couldn't wait for you.
Your best friend, ALEX

Last night, 13 November 2013, at 11pm, a register call was made in Heaven and your name my dear friend, Sibongile "Sbosh" Hlanganyane (to be Mabilisa) was on the list of those God wanted back. 16 years of the BEST of FRIENDS friendship, a lot of memories came flooding in. I would like to smile as I recall the but the reality of you being gone hits and hurts and tears come running down my cheeks. I can't think of a time when I'm not gonna miss you, on my birthdays, when I have my first baby, when I get married in every milestone recallable I'll be forever missing your sense of humor, laughter, spark and your unconditionally undying love and care. Gugu and Nqobile will miss you but I know that both you and Sandile will be looking over them all the time.

Sharp mngani. I love you.

June the 2nd we lost a good woman by the name of Maggie Lynn she passed away from cancer, Her son Bryan Lynn wanted to have a service for his mom, but didn't get his wish. On June the 5th we planned a memorial service for her at their home with family and friends, we laid out things that she made and things that she collected, we posted pictures of her and family and friends. We let a bunches of balloons and white roses go to represent her going home to god and when it got dark we lit candles for a moment of silence, later on that night at 12:20 I received a call that my friend couldn't wake Bryan up, we went to his house to try to help only to watch our friend our family take his last breath, he left us all behind to deal with the heartache and pain of them both being gone, He was a momma's boy and he wasn't going to let his mom make this trip by herself! Maggie May and Bryan I hope that you all are happy, we <3 and miss you very much, RIP, LOVE YOUR family you left behind!
