Friends For Life


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007 with permission of the Author.

We are friends.
I've got your back,
And you have mine.
I'll help you out
To see you hurt,
To see you cry,
Makes me weep
And wanna die.
If you agree
To never fight,
It wouldn't matter
Who's wrong or right.
If a broken heart
Needs a mend,
I'll be right there
Till the end.
If your cheeks are wet
From drops of tears,
Don't worry,
Let go of your fears.
Hand in hand
Love is sent.
We'll be friends
Till the end!

You know, many people say that 7 people in the world are alike, although not genetically. Well, I had a friend who is in a different state. Both of us like the same things, and we even officially called ourselves "long lost twin sisters!" We usually get in touch by chatting to one another online, but then one day my mum deleted her number because she thinks she is a scammer! I was so miserable. She was my only friend that knows what I've gone through. But luckily, one of MY friends knows one of HER friends, so when I get my own handphone, the first thing I'm going to do is to contact her. So, Iris, if you are reading this, I just want to say that I miss you so much!

Hi, I have a bit of a problem. I'm a 63-year-old man with a couple of physical disabilities. About a year ago it became more and more apparent that I needed additional assistance that the other family members who I live with could not provide. So, regardless of my stupid pride, the VA sent me a caregiver, Ana who is 28 years my junior. From day one we clicked. Aside from the great help that she gives me with cleaning, changing my bedding, my showers, meal preparation, etc., we talk a lot about different things and agree on most everything. We have so much in common, but as she will remind me, she's my caregiver, plain and simple! I have viewed her as a "friend." I have had to face up to reality, though because there's no doubt that I am truly in love with her! I tried so hard not to let it happen. I can never tell her about my true feelings for her or I may never see her again! I love her so very, very much! Silent I will and must remain!

Unrequited love is sometimes the most painful, but be grateful that you still have the ability to love, even if you cannot speak. It is a beautiful gift to your life. It will change you, It will make you gentler, more compassionate, tender, loving, grateful for each moment and celebration shared. Silent love is a very beautiful love and a real gift.

I'm a home help for older people, and I fully understand how you're feeling. But I have to ask is it LOVE or just because you're lonely? Maybe you could ask her for a meal to say thank you for all she does for you. Then when you're out assess the situation. You can always fall back on the I just wanna say thank you card. Good luck.

I lived in Missouri, and for a long time my best friend lived down the street, and I would go to her house every day. We saw each other all the time. But then we started arguing. We were friends and then we weren't and then we were. Then I moved to where I am now, and I don't know if she is still my friend, but I miss her whether or not she misses me.

I need help. My best friend and I stopped being best friends because we argued every day. She got so sick of it, she ended our friendship, and she won't let me apologize to her. When days go by I always think of my best friend and how I lost someone so amazing. Just thinking about her gets me in a sad mood. What can I do? I tried moving on, but I can't.

Contact her in any way to find out about your relationship.

  • Akash by Akash

Give her some time. Then talk to her. Not for the sake of apologizing. Just talk to her normally. Ask about her days and well being. Then casually meet her, and when leaving, just hug her for a little longer than usual and say how much you care for her. Say that things always happen in friendships, but being apart is not the solution. Start listening to her instead of giving advice.

This poem really inspired me. I sent it to my best friend and loved it. My friend betrayed me a couple of years ago and teamed up with a mean girl against my older sister. This made me so mad that I wanted to cut our friendship right then and there. However, I realized that she was my best friend no matter what happened.

This has sweet words. I have used two lines in a song about my mate whose father tragically died. Hope that is okay. I am not famous or anything but hope you are cool with this! Great poem very inspiring. Thanks thanks thanks

I can relate to this poem because me and my friend argue a lot and it's really sad and I always find a poem to send to her and it's hard because when we fight we don't talk for days. We only send angry texts and I hate it. I wish we would never argue and just be friends so we could never see each other upset.

It really touched me because I have friends that I could say this to and I really miss them. We are in different grades and schools so I don't talk to them much. Only one I talk to and I really miss and love them.

This poem touched me in a very special way me and my best friend went through a lot together. We always use to get into a arguments but at the end of the day we both realize that we still are best friends and we will always be best friends and no one can come in between us. When my other friend was up here she said that she was my best friend but as soon as she left and went to another school it's like she just forgot all about me and now I have a new best friend and we will always be loyal to each other and no one and I mean no one can ever ever ever come in between us and if they try me and my friend will do what we always wanted to do is to kick somebody a** so thank you and have a nice day love you guys and hope that you loved my opinion and how this poem touched me in my special way.

I have a friend named Victoria and she and I are really close if she cries it makes me cry. I care about her. I mean that she is a smart girl and that people are putting her out. I'm her only friend and I really care about her. If she moves. I won't be able to move on. And when it's time to go to go up above I know that she will always be with me.

I had a friend that is just like this and I wish that she hadn't left and move to Oregon near Washington and I really miss her so much it feels empty without her next to me through everything I had been through since she had left. I had broken up with my boyfriend and I wish I hadn't. She would had been there to tell me not to break up with him, but I wish she was still here with me and now she is not. I regret the decisions I had made without her here.

I emailed this to my best friend Savanah. She is so nice to me. She has always had my back and she kept my secrets. Everytime we sat together in school, teachers had to move us. She is my most favorite friend. I love her like a sister! :)

I had a best friend named Sarah who I've had for 8 or 9 years and we always thought we'd be friends forever. But recently, there was no fights or disagreements, she just stopped talking to me and says she doesn't want to talk to me anymore. I feel so upset cause I really just want to know why. So this poem made me cry. :(
