I absolutely love this poem so much because it says exactly how my ex is now my best friend. He is one of the greatest blessings I've been given.

Forever Friends


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009 with permission of the Author.

True friends are hard to find,
but there you are; you came into my life.
You came to me in a perfect time.
I'm so happy you're a friend of mine.

We've been together for so long,
in a fantastic place where we belong.
We shared the mysteries of our life.
Laughter and tears are seen in our eyes.

You're with me and I'm with you.
You comfort me and I LOVE YOU.
A part of me becomes part of you.
True friendship I've found in you.

Now it's time to say goodbye;
tears of sadness keep falling in my eyes.
So please don't cry, my darling friend,
'Cause our friendship will never end.

Yes, it's true, we'll be apart,
'Cause I'm here and you there.
With you, my friend, I want to tell,
whatever happens, we'll be FRIENDS FOREVER!

Hello, I'm a senior in high school. And my best friend is a girl. I want to write something special in her yearbook, because just like friends we both been through think and thin with each other and we've always bounced back and continued being friends. Just a short story for you all.
Last year on April 28, our junior year, hours after prom was over and both our dates had gone home we both sat in the parking lot of our high school and we both told each other we didn't want to lose each other after graduation, after we moved to college and started our families. We wanted to stay in touch, that night we both cried in each others arms for the fear that we would never see each other again after graduation. That night we both promised each other whatever obstacles we faced whether they were difficult or easy. We would encourage each other to keep going. Then we finally left to go home at 2 or 3 in the morning.
Just thought I'd share that and thanks for putting the poem up.
