For A Best Friend


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

Through tears and fights,
Through smiles, I knew everything
Would be all right.
Through love and hate,
Through betrayal and debate,
For you I would always have faith.
Being your sister as well as your
Best friend, I knew
This friendship wouldn't end.
By your side I would always stand,
And you'll stand by mine too
Because that's what best friends do.
So no matter what happens with us
In life,
Through all of the wrongs
And all of the rights,
I'm here for you to be a best friend; that's true,
'Cause I love you and that's what
Best friends do.

My best friend and I have known each other for over a year or two. At first, we hated each other, but we have had some pretty amazing memories. Now we are in a big one where all of my best friends have turned on her, but she is suicidal and self-harms. We all think she does it for attention, and sometimes I think that too, but I know she is struggling deep down. I've said some mean things about her because I was angry, but I want to be her friend again if she'll accept me. She is my best friend, and I've tried talking to her, but she avoids me. She has blocked me on everything and my heart is torn in two. She was once my world, and I was hers until now.

I met him when we were 2. I've loved him since day one. We are now in middle school together, and he suddenly hates me. I don't know why. He won't even talk to me. I love him more than life, more than he could ever imagine. Every time we make eye contact, I start to cry. He doesn't understand. He does not know I would give my world to him if it meant he would be my friend again. For the past 10 (almost 11) years of our life, it was always him and me. We've been through things that nobody else knows. I love him. I know things about him that nobody else does! He will never know that I have loved him my whole life.
I'd catch a grenade for you
Throw my hand on a blade for you
Jump in front of a train for you
Oh yes, I'd do anything for you
I would go through all of this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same
- Bruno Mars
Every time I listen to that song, I think of him, and the tears just flow.

That's alright, I have a best friend and he lives across the other side of the world. He's always supported me no matter how far he lives from me, he's still got our friendship. So you should just message your best friend.

Me and my bestie have been friends for almost 8 years. We were always there for each other.. Never thought I would live without her, alas! She broke my heart. Greedy.. We are no longer friends but I still miss her..

It reminds me of my bestie. We were friends for almost 9 years. I never thought it would happen with us. Two people with never-ending conversations someday would stand quiet in front of each other having nothing to say. Times have changed us. Yeah, I still miss her. Maybe she does the same. We no longer talk...ours is a story of besties turned into strangers.

  • Mariah by Mariah

I have a very similar story. We were best friends for years and towards the "end", her and I would get into nasty fights, make up, fight again, not talk for months, make up again sorta. It was a never ending cycle. We both changed. We don't really talk anymore, we know it's best for ourselves at least for now. But we miss each other terribly. :(

I had a best friend in primary school! She was everything I needed in a friend..... Now that I've moved to a different place I find it difficult to trust anyone the way I trusted her and loved her!! That is why I've decided to become a poet to express my feelings of feeling lost and betrayed by life means and by back stabbers!! I still wish I had her by my side to help me concur my enemies and defeat any haters!!! I love you Pranelle Hirallel

I've been having a soul sister for 4 years now, and it doesn't matter how long we know each other for, this poem truly says it all for me. I'm also going through high school now and things are getting really hot now, and I also don't know how long it's still going to last. but one thing I know for sure; I don't know how I could survive without her, because she is my sunshine, and without the sun there is nothing in this world. No butterflies that fly and no polluting humans. But what I want to say is that we are going through rough times this year and especially now, and I am afraid that after this fight things will change forever because there was a boy involved. We both have done wrongs this week, but I sent her this poem and hope she sees it in a similar way I do.

My Bestie and I have been BEST FRIENDS since we were 2. We met at church. I remember all the times we had together good and bad. Like the time in Kindergarten at nap time she found a crayon and colored all over the floor then blamed me but the teacher knew it was her. Now we are almost in high school, nothing will ever separate us. Dad always said, Friends will come and go but one always stays the same. I <3 you!!!

My best friend is like my sister even though we have only known each other for a year it feels like a lifetime. We cry together and everything we even have a house together. I don't know where I would be without her. We have matching tattoos meaning we link for life...

Me & my friend were besties since kindergarten & we stopped speaking in 12th grade. We haven't spoke in 2 years till the other day; the other day she hit me up on fb & it shocked me! I'm glad we're speaking but I want to jump & go back how we used to be. I love her insanely and I wish it was possible to besties again. But when we speak its different..

I love this poem!!!!

Me and my bestfriend have been friends since 6th grade. We're both in 12th now. We've had our ups and downs but we're still best friends. We stopped talking after we reached high school, but we're now back in each others lives. We had an argument two days ago, I really thought we were done. But, I apologized and told her how I felt. She told me that she really loves me and doesn't want us to stop being best friends. And that I will never lose her as a bestfriend, she'll always be there. That really made me cry because this just shows me that she's a true friend. I really thought I lost her as a bestfriend but she realized that people make mistakes. She's a keeper and I love her so much. Our argument actually made our relationship stronger. I hope in the future, we will still be best friends. :)

Me and My best friend are currently in a huge fight. But this poems reminds me of our friendship. When we fight we always make up and when we do we always come out of the fight stronger. Always have. I mean I hope we come out of this fight all right. I love my best friend with all my heart, but right now it doesn't seem like we'll become friends again. But that's how I always feel when we're fighting.

I really like this poem it kind of took me back through all the bad times I have had with my friends and then again they were always there by my side no matter what. They taught me wrong from right. That's what best friends are for. I really don't know what I would do with out my friends in my life I love them all.

Hi. I love my best friend even when we have an arguament. We even write poems to eachother just like this one. I would never change one day of our life because even when someone tries to get in the way, we ignore them and carry on the same. I love you Danniella. Xxx
