Friendship Poem by Teens

When someone stumbles through life not knowing where to go, their friends are always there for each other. We should never trade friends (and family) for anything.

Valerie M. is eleven years old. She wrote this poem for a Poems and Quotes project for her class. This poem is dedicated to her best friends: Aliya, Viviene, Chris, and Brandon.

Friendship Is The Best Ship Of All

Friendship is priceless
And can never be forgotten.
Friendship is timeless
And never rotten.

It takes more than hugs and kisses
To be a real friend.
The nature of friendship
Requires a blend.

The road to a happy life
May sometimes make us stumble.
But to have a friend to give us a hand
Teaches us to be humble.

Good friends are hard to find,
Hard to lose,
And impossible to forget,
But when they fly away,
Your anger turns to regret.

Sometimes in life we need a special person
To listen while we talk.
A special person who will not discourage or judge
But encourage us as we walk.

Friends are there
To help you along.
The journey through friendship
Is always long.

In life,
There are big ships,
And there are small ships,
But the best ship of all
Is friendship.

Hey I gave this poem to my friend for her birthday and she loved it I would have never thought of something that clever

I feel this poem is very good. I have a friend who is having a birthday in a short while, I have known him for over 30 years. He lives in South Africa, and I have moved to the UK. Unfortunately I am not able to go and I think this poem will reflect our friendship.
