Goodbye Friend Poem

Leaving Friend Poem

This is a poem about making great friends and sharing so much with them but being forced to leave them suddenly. I'm a personal support worker and I wrote this poem for the family of a woman I assisted who I became quite close with. I did respite in their home for two years and just last week she passed away, bless her soul. She was 95.

Lucky Soul


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

I am such a lucky soul
To have friends as good as you
'Cause when worries find their way to me
And I'm unsure what to do...

I just think of you and remember
Something you said or a story you told.
It makes me laugh and gives me joy
That you should be so bold.

You've taught me many things
That I did not know before,
Brought clarity, enlightenment,
That I must thank you for.

Your kindness is revered,
And this I have no doubt,
That we'll be friends eternally
And that I cannot live without...

I admire you and that is why
For now it's hard to part,
But it won't be long that I'll be gone,
And you'll be in my heart.
