Forever In My Heart


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2012

I miss your smile,
I miss your laugh.
I miss you
and that happiness you always had.
One day your smile had faded away,
I still remember how I felt that day.
Your warmth and comfort that was always near,
Your life and joy seamed to disappear.
You took your last breath
To end your suffering,
If I said it hadn't affected me,
I'd just be bluffing.
If I could change everything,
You know I would.
I would change it for you.
I know I should,
But what if the sadness I had infected everyone else?
What if like a disease it spread all about?
Maybe I wouldn't do it.
It would just be greedy.
I'm sorry if I sound so desperate and needy,.
You have to see this is hard for me to get through.
When every friend I had had was you.
You left me!
You forgot me!
Take me with you!
They say you're in a better place
And someday I'll be there too.
I guess I'll wait for that someday.
I can't do this to someone else,
Put them through the pain
That truly doesn't have any gain,
No matter what they say.
I want to scream,
I want to cry,
I have gotten to low points,
Where I just want to die.
But the sad tears are gone,
Now that the damage is done,
And all I can do is smile,
I can remember all of the fun,
The fun we had when it was just you and me.
I cry, but they're happy tears
When I'm looking back on all of our memories.

That was the best poem ever. I have never lost a friend, but I can still understand the pain. I know that's easy for me to say, but there are things in my life that I feel sad about, things that have to do with divorce and moving away from my best friend. I also lost my dog from cancer, so I hope maybe you feel better knowing that there's at least one person who cares even though I'm not your dad, friend, or mom, but I feel you.

I have a friend named Eman. I don't know how I met her, but she has a good, funny attitude. I've been with her all the time. Her voice, her laugh, I miss it all...and then...the farewell party comes. I'm not ready to go to school saying goodbye to her. I wanna scream and cry. We had a fun time, but as soon as I was gonna go we hugged each other. She said she's in a good school, but I am in the bad school. She said she had a new BFF, and I have nothing left.

I had a best friend. She wasn't like the others, she was popular, chatty, a laugh that any boy would fall for. She was different than the rest. It was in year 7 and I liked this boy. She liked him the year before, but I asked before just to check if she still like liked him. She told me no, so I got to know him. He was really nice and I really liked him. Then she said that I should ask him out. She said that she would ask him out for me, but it didn't end well, and next class I had to sit next to him. It was so awkward. My other best friend told me that she liked him to begin with. I decided that I would use it as an advantage. But then someone else told me that she had told everyone that I liked him and that she had asked him out. I was furious and she hated me. A few weeks went by with me totally ignoring her until I realized just how much I missed her. I wrote a poem and planned to give to her, but I wasn't brave enough, so I decided to keep it as a memory. I love her so much.

I feel that way too. I started crying when reading these poems:( I moved to Co when I was 4. I was kind of a loner, and I met this girl named Emily and immediately knew she was my best friend. I'm now almost 13 and she is suddenly moving to Germany! I'm so sad, I have'nt been eating much, and I am always crying myself to sleep. She is the other half of me, I'm not gonna survive without her:(

This reminds me of my friend in another country. We only knew each other for 9 months and we became BFFs. But unfortunately, I left the country with my parents and left her. I sometimes still imagine being by her side, laughing and giving warm hugs even though its not real anymore. I miss her so much and I can't call her because of the time differences and she can't reply to me because of internet problems. Her laptop doesn't work either. I don't know how to connect to her. I'm sad and lost...I love her and I need her..I miss her so much...

I was in third grade. There was this new girl coming into my school. She was nice. But as the popular girls thought her as a... horrible girl, I didn't like her either. Then, one lunch I saw her sitting alone. I walked up to her and asked her, "Where are your friends?" she replied, "I don't know." I said, "Well why?" so she said, "Because I don't have any. Of course I knew the answers to those questions but I just wanted to make sure. Just then my heart dropped down and felt a horrible pain in my body. I felt very sad for her. So I said to her "Well, I'll be your friend." And since then we were BFF's. Then I had to leave for another country. I see her sometimes when I go and visit South Africa. But what breaks my heart is that still, after be being gone for 2 years she still has stayed strong with nobody liking her.
