Best Friend Poem

Poem About What True Friendship Means

When you live to be 93, as I have, you will have seen many things of value, but what I have always treasured most has been my many friends. When you live this long, you have the sadness of losing most of them, but the cherished times together will always remain.

To My Treasured Friend

Though there is gold up in the mountains,
Lovely pearls deep in the sea,
Those treasures do not mean as much
As your friendship means to me.
While diamonds may be beautiful,
And worth a lot of money,
They cannot give a warm embrace
Or share jokes we think are funny.
I know it's true some people
Will collect much priceless art,
Yet I have never seen a picture
That showed me a loving heart.
So I don't need to spend a fortune
To have what means the most to me.
Knowing that I have had your friendship
Will be a treasured memory.

Best friends mean different things to different people. Some insist that you can have only one best friend. Others assert that they have best friends for different aspects of their personalities. Whatever the precise definition, your best friend is the person who gets you. They understand who you are and what you are saying. The greatest distance cannot separate best friends. You will always feel a kinship with them and be able to instantly continue the friendship even after not talking for many years.

Friend to Friend

My Dearest Friend,
From laughing, smiles, and caring touch,
I would know you anywhere.
You are so much more
Than what meets the eye.
You are like the finishing piece to my puzzle.
Your friendship is like an open door,
Even through our last goodbyes.
I will always keep you in my mind,
Even through my darkest hours.
