Tribute Poems on the Loss of a Friend

What are some of the feelings that one might feel when a friend passes away? When someone that is special to us is gone it can be difficult to continue living life. Things that were special to you may begin to seem pointless when you don't have that special person to share it with. All of the things that you did together are reminders of the loss that you have suffered. Do yourself a favor and take the time to mourn your loss. As you go through the five stages of grief; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance, memories of the good times you spent together may bring a smile to your face instead of a painful grimace.

    To a lovely friend who will be missed forever.

    Beautiful Short Poem For The Death Of A Friend

    The angels looked down from heaven one night.
    They searched for miles afar,
    And deep within the distance
    They could see a shining star.

    They knew that very instant
    That the star was theirs to gain,
    So they took you up to heaven,
    Forever to remain.

    Look down on us from heaven.
    Keep us free from hurt and pain.
    You'll always be within my heart
    Until we meet again.

    My best friend was murdered this June. She, her mom, and her dog were cruelly taken away. This is for you, Jade. I'll miss you forever.

    Holding Onto Memories After A Friend's Passing

    It's okay to miss you,
    It's okay to cry.
    Just know I'll never forget you.
    This isn't a permanent goodbye.

    Sometimes I sit and wonder
    If you are standing by my side,
    Giving me the courage
    To carry on with pride.

    I'll hold onto our memories,
    Until this life is done.
    In my heart is where I'll store them,
    Where we can be as one.

  5. 3. Don't Cry For Me Today

    • By Mercades
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2011

    This is a poem I wrote in memory of Lauren Rhodes. She was one of my good friends. She passed a way in a car wreck not too long ago. I felt like she was whispering these words in my ear.

    In Memory Of A Friend Poem

    Don't cry for me today,
    I wouldn't want it this way.

    Be strong and smile,
    for you will see me in a while.

    I know you miss me,
    but now in Heaven I will be.

    Do not keep your sad face.
    I am in a much better place.

    Do not let your tears fall,
    for I cannot wipe them all.

    Yes, my life wasn't long,
    But I'm begging you to be strong.

    Live every moment as if it were your last.
    I won't forget any memories that have passed.

    Cherish life and love
    as I watch you from above.

    As I remember all of the good things,
    I come to see I have gotten my wings.

    It is time to go and fly.
    As your guardian angel I will try.

    Don't cry for me today.
    I'm on my way.

    Soaring through the sky,
    I watch all of you telling me goodbye.

  6. 4. Since The Loss Of You

    • By Tiffany
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    This poem is a dedication to RTB and NAB...two of the greatest people ever brought to this Earth. They both died too young and never had a chance to see what life could bring. Ryan, just 16, died in the car accident we were in on August 12, 2007. Weeks later, Nicole, my cousin, only 17, battled cancer. She passed away 13 days after her 18th birthday. Her last wish was to be home for Christmas, and I guess she really was home...RIP. In loving memory...

    Since the loss of you,
    I've learned to live for each day
    And take it as a blessing,
    Knowing it may not always be this way.

    Since the loss of you,
    I've learned that when everything goes wrong
    To never give up on what is right
    Because it can only make you strong.

    Since the loss of you,
    I've learned that even when you're in a lot of pain
    You've got to hold yourself together
    So you won't feel like you're going insane.

    Since the loss of you,
    I've learned how to hold the tears when I want to cry
    Because all I have is memories
    And just want to ask God why.

    But mostly, since the loss of you,
    I've learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye
    And only Heaven really knows when
    That person will have to say "Goodbye."

  7. 5. Everywhere

    • By Tara L. Collacchi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016

    This poem is about the feeling of losing someone so close to you. Even though you may not see them physically, they will always be with us!

    Remember Me In Everything Around You

    There was no time to say goodbye.
    But this I ask - please do not cry.
    Remember me as you think best.
    Remember the happy times, but forget the rest.

    Look for me and I'll be there,
    And you will find me everywhere:
    In the gentle touch of the breeze
    That cools the skin or swirls the leaves.

    In the scent and color of flowers
    That gave me such happy hours.
    On sunny days, under sunny skies of blue,
    Just think of me, I'll be with you.

    In winter when there's cloud or mist,
    The rain will give to you my kiss.
    As wood smoke lingers in the air,
    Look for me and I'll be there.

    Where seagulls cry above the sea
    And surf rolls in so endlessly.
    Among towering trees that soar above,
    In all these things that I once loved.

    Look for me and I'll be there.
    You'll feel my presence EVERYWHERE!

  8. 6. Time Is Meant To Heal

    • By Kim Thompson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    It has been four years since the death of my best friend, and it doesn't get easier. This deals with the pain after several years.

    Although unheard, I thank you
    For always being there.
    Even when you were bedridden,
    You always seemed to care.

    You meant so much to all of us;
    You were special and that's no lie.
    You brightened up the darkest day
    And even the greyest sky.

    Many tears I have seen and cried.
    They have all poured out like rain.
    I know that you are happy now
    'Cause you're no longer in pain.

    Four years on, I remember you
    And what you used to say.
    You made each of us smile
    And live to the fullest each day.

    They say in time it gets easier.
    I believe this isn't true
    Because even after all this time,
    I still don't have a clue.

    I was not ready to say goodbye.
    Your disease just over took,
    So on this day we remember you.
    I take a second look.

    Our friendship is forever.
    Until death, did we part.
    Although you're away physically,
    You're always in my heart.

  9. 7. My Best Friend Natalie

    • By Staci J. Selke
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007

    The time that you spend with a friend is never lost for it forever lives on in you.

    I sit around and wonder
    and watch the days go by.
    I look at all the pictures
    and ask, why did you have to die?

    You've always been there for me,
    because you were my best friend,
    and I was always there for you
    until the very end.

    But now it's time to let you go.
    Your spirit now is free,
    even though you won't really be gone,
    because you'll live inside of me.

    So when we have to leave you
    at your resting place,
    I will always remember
    your smiling, beautiful face.

    This is hardly a goodbye,
    so I won't weep anymore,
    because now you're in better place
    than you ever were before.

    Even though I will miss you,
    and I'll think about you every day,
    you'll always be my best friend,
    and that's all I have to say.

  10. 8. When A Friend Bids Goodbye

    • By Kathrine Yee Baraquia
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    This is a poem for a friend, for a lost friend... this poem is about a very good friend, jolly, fun, hilarious friend who never tell her friends about her sickness..even her bestfriend. Then one day, she can no longer keep it... she was about to die. She asked her best friend to come over and sit beside her, and hear her whisper... she asked her to close her eyes so her bestfriend won't see her die...she asked her not to open her eyes until she's gone...

    My dear friend,
    close your eyes...
    hold my hand,
    and hear me whisper...

    For the times I was lost,
    you were there to look for me.
    Will you believe me when I say I love you more than you'll ever know.
    Will you trust me when I say ...this time you have to let me go.

    My dear friend, I must leave.
    The world no longer needs me.
    It's my time to be gone, until we meet again someday.
    Don't you cry now, I know I'll be okay.
    Trust that I'll never forget you.
    Don't be sad now, just close your eyes until it's through.
    Hold my hand, don't open your eyes yet...
    wait when I no longer whisper..

    My dear friend, you'll be fine.
    I'll be up there watching over you.
    For the times I'll be gone, don't ever forget
    the words I whispered to you.

    God calls on my name... and I have to let go of your hand now...
    Please don't cry... and smile for me..
    because I'm with the one who made us friends.

    Remember, I'll always love you.
    so come, wave me goodbye...
    It'll be painful but we have to...
    Hug me, hug me tight, feel the words I can no longer say.

    My dear friend, I'm going to miss you.
    just pray because I'll always listen.
    and one day, when it's your time,
    I'll be there for you...
    Just like the way I used to.
    ...I love you...

  11. 9. Who Would You Be Today?

    This poem was written a few days after my best friend died. It has now been 7 months and the guy stays on my mind all day. I love you Bobby!!!

    Pain Of Losing A Best Friend

    Could you imagine a pain so deep down inside
    That it can not be summarized in words you simply can write
    A pain that touches your toes and up to the top of the ceiling
    You can't eat, you can't sleep, that is the pain that I am feeling
    But my father raised a boy that can stand on his own
    But these different circumstances has got me feeling alone
    All the doctors and the nurses say you're dead and you're gone
    But it still feels like I could talk to you if I picked up the phone
    You can't fix a broken window you just replace the pane.
    But there is no pain great enough to replace your face
    With my eyes matted shut from the tears that I slept on
    I thank God for the pictures and your voice on my cell phone.
    But please, while you are awed in the mist of the Lord
    Don't forget all your friends and time spent on this world.
    I will never have a friend like you ever again.
    My heart is a vault now, I'm scared to let people in.
    No matter how many oceans or rivers I cry
    My heart will never let you go, I'll never say good bye.
    A lot of my hours are now spent in the place where you lay
    As I sit crying, wondering, who would you be today.

    My best friend Josh got into a car accident on June 29, 2006. He was my best friend, and I miss him so much. Here's a poem just for you, Josh. I love you buddy.

    Death Of Best Friend Poem

    You always put a smile on my face,
    no matter how mad I was.
    All I had to do was call you and you would make everything better.
    The day that I heard that you were taken from us, my heart broke.
    I dropped down to my knees and cried and cried.
    All I wanted was for one more day with you.
    As I sit here at your grave looking at your picture.,
    All I want to do is hug you and laugh with you and play basketball with you.
    I miss you so much; we all do,
    and when you died,
    the whole town felt the pain.
    You were only 16 years old.
    You didn't deserve to die.
    You wanted to get married and go to college,
    Have babies and have a family.
    You've been gone for a year now, and I miss you like hell.
    I think about you every day.
    It's getting easier,
    but every time I look at your picture or pull out the scrapbook, my eyes start to water.
    I will never forget you,
    Joshua Craig Harris.
    I love you and miss you,
    but I know that you're in heaven
    looking over all of us.
    I can't wait until I get to see you again.


    In Loving Memory of Joshua Craig Harris

  13. 11. Birthdays In Heaven

    • By Meena
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2019

    My friend had a fatal accident and died on the spot five years ago. I know it's a long time, but it still feels like yesterday. This poem serves as a remembrance and celebration of her birthday and a way of praying she never forgets me too.

    Remembering The Birthday Of A Friend Who Passed Away

    I remember the first day we met.
    You were all smiles, always happy.
    This I must say is the saddest birthday yet
    Because I still haven't learned to forget.

    Here I am, sitting all alone,
    Not knowing what to do or what to say,
    Calling every day, hoping you'll pick your phone
    Because I can't believe you left this way.

    You were a damsel, an angel, a shining light,
    A sun at noon and a star at night,
    A mirror of beauty, a golden ray,
    And again, here comes your birthday.

    Here is to wishing you a happy birthday, dear.
    I wish and hope that you will hear
    My heart is aching from trying to comprehend
    How a being so sweet can have a tragic end.

    I hope at least you'll get a birthday card.
    Knowing you're gone still makes me sad.
    Again, happy birthday to a darling friend.
    I'll love you forever till the world's end.

    I'll really like a sign from God
    So that I'll know you can see this word for word,
    So please consider this my special way
    Of wishing you a happy, happy birthday.

  14. 12. Watch Over Us

    • By Natasha Doucet
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    Okay. Dustin was pretty much my brother. I have known him my entire life. I woke up one morning to his grandmother, which was also my neighbor, asking me if I wanted to go to church but I wasn't feeling good. So I turned down the offer. I went to church with Dustin and his grandmother every Sunday morning, except for this one. I woke up to someone knocking on the door next door and walked outside to let them know that she went to church. She told me she knew this and that the cops pulled her out of church to give her some bad news about Dustin. Turns out Dustin was killed in a car wreck on September 30 of 2007. So the day before his funeral, because I absolutely love to right, I decided I would write him a poem. I had to get up and read it in front of everyone there and they all loved it. I have people tell me every day that I need to post my poems. I thought about it for a long time then decided I have at least one I want everyone to read.

    Even though he's gone
    his memory still remains in our hearts.
    His smile and face will never fade.
    We think of him as we go on each day.
    The good times we remember
    and the days spent together
    will be in our memories forever.
    So when you start to get down
    and you really want to cry
    just think of the fun times
    and don't wonder why.
    Just leave it at that
    and know he's better now.
    He's in a better place.
    His heart was right with God.
    So Dustin we love you
    and we miss you so much
    but we know you're much happier.
    So watch over us and make sure we're okay
    and we will see you again someday.

    This poem was written for my best friend when he died on June 12,2009. He was shot and fatally wounded. I wrote this poem in honor of him.

    If I had knew then, what I know now
    I would've spent more time with you
    Things go by so fast
    and I wish I could back and change the past.

    Even with the days that have gone by
    I think of you still, and often cry.
    People say time makes the hurt go away
    But I think of you, each and every day.

    Sure I miss all the things we used to do
    My best friend for life you will always be.
    Every night and day about you I pray.
    To see you smile at me again someday

    Now the place you're going, I may not get to go
    But I'll keep on trying, and I wanted you to know
    Now there's one more thing, I wish I could do
    I wish I could tell you how much I miss you.

    I know you are in a better place,

    You were so young to die.
    Every night I sit and cry,
    Wondering why does it have to be this way.
    It hurts so much because there's nothing I can do or say
    That can make you come back to me.
    There is one thing that's plain to see
    That one day we will be together again,
    But you will always remain my best friend.

  17. 15. Goodnight, My Soul

    • By Taryn M. Clark
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2016

    I met my best friend, Duane Nadeau, when I was 16 years old. They say when you meet your soul mate, there is this connection that can't be explained. Duane was born with Cystic Fibrosis of the lungs and pancreas. He was the strongest man I knew, fighting every day to stay with us as long as possible. When he died, the person I was before died with him. He was my heart, my soul, and a part of me that only existed because of him. The love we had will always stay with me. There's a hole that will never be filled.

    Saying Goodbye To Your Best Friend

    Goodnight, my soul; your journey has ended.
    Your struggles have now begun to cease.
    Time to close your eyes to happy dreams
    And wake to eternal peace.

    The road is not so long now.
    No more winding paths,
    Just a silver beam of radiant light
    That will take you home at last.

    Goodnight, my soul; I wish I could have more time.
    I wish I could make you stay.
    It's easier to be that selfish
    Than to deal with this pain every day.

    I don't want you to be afraid.
    Everything will be okay.
    I will stay with you till the end
    And hold your hand as you drift away.

    Goodnight, my soul; I don't want to let go.
    We've been together many years.
    It's hard to see what lies ahead.
    It's blurry through the tears.

    Free from pain, you fight no more.
    That's all we wish for ones we love.
    Take us with you wherever you go
    And protect us from above.

    My love is endless.
    Our two souls are forever entwined.
    There will always be a hollow spot.
    I will miss you until it becomes my time.

    So, goodnight, my soul; tears fall
    As I bid a regrettable farewell.
    One thing will remain honest and true,
    For me, living without you is going to be hell.

    The grief I feel will be as endless as my love for you.
    Until we meet again at those pearly gates...wait for me there.

    A very dear friend of mine died at the age of 21 in a horrible car accident and was not sure that he went to heaven so my friend one night had a dream in which he appeared in it and said that he was OK and that inspired me to right this. R.I.P Elden Keith Cox J.R

    I pray every night I could see you one last time
    I look in the clouds as if for a sign
    I got to sleep crying, I wish you were here
    But there in my dreams you once will appear
    That beautiful smile I see on your face
    Assures my heart your in a better place
    I knew you were special but not just to me
    How so many people loved you was clearly to see
    The day you were taken my heart was so broken
    I knew there were words I should have not left unspoken
    I miss you so much but I know you understand
    I cant wait for the day I get to hold your hand
    As we walk down the road that is paved with gold
    We will hear all the stories we were once told
    And there we will see Him. so beautiful and strong
    And we will know this is where we finally belong
    So soon I will be there and I know you will wait
    As you take my arm through the pearly gates
    But till then I will keep my head high and know it will be OK
    Until we can be together again one day

    I miss you
    and that happiness you always had.
    One day your smile had faded away,
    I still remember how I felt that day.
    Your warmth and comfort that was always near,
    Your life and joy seamed to disappear.
    You took your last breath
    To end your suffering,
    If I said it hadn't affected me,
    I'd just be bluffing.
    If I could change everything,
    You know I would.
    I would change it for you.
    I know I should,
    But what if the sadness I had infected everyone else?
    What if like a disease it spread all about?
    Maybe I wouldn't do it.
    It would just be greedy.
    I'm sorry if I sound so desperate and needy,.
    You have to see this is hard for me to get through.
    When every friend I had had was you.
    You left me!
    You forgot me!
    Take me with you!
    They say you're in a better place
    And someday I'll be there too.
    I guess I'll wait for that someday.
    I can't do this to someone else,
    Put them through the pain
    That truly doesn't have any gain,
    No matter what they say.
    I want to scream,
    I want to cry,
    I have gotten to low points,
    Where I just want to die.
    But the sad tears are gone,
    Now that the damage is done,
    And all I can do is smile,
    I can remember all of the fun,
    The fun we had when it was just you and me.
    I cry, but they're happy tears
    When I'm looking back on all of our memories.

  20. 18. Just One Thing I Should Have Said

    • By Ciara
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2012

    This is something I should of said to my good friend, but I didn't get the chance as he sadly took his own life. I think about him every day, even dream of him at night!
    There were no signs of what he was going to do.
    I always loved him but never told him so. I just wish I had the chance to say goodbye before he had to go.

    He is a friend to remember,
    A friend I miss so much.
    I think about all the laughter
    And even the times we'd touch.

    I know you know the score now
    As you look down from above.
    You see me full of sorrow
    'Cause so much of you I love.

    I wish I had the chance,
    But you decided you had to go.
    That night you asked me for that dance
    I should have told you so.

    But as every day has passed,
    I can almost feel you near.
    I just always thought you'd forever last
    But now it's you I cannot hear.

    Just one thing I should have said
    While you were still down here,
    But you stepped inside that bloody shed,
    Though I will always hold you near.

    I know to heaven you have been led.
    You're my angel up above,
    But just one thing I should have said.
    It was you I always LOVED.

  21. 19. 1 Year Anniversary

    • By Laura
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    Dedicated to my best friend who was in a terrible accident almost a year ago at the age of 23 which unknown to us at the time would eventually kill him 4 weeks later. I miss him, almost more now then I did at the beginning. He was the best friend I could have ever wished for and hope he's happy now and at rest. Laura xx

    The way I miss you is different now, I don't think about forever I just don't know how.
    I miss your face, your laugh and your smile, It seems like a lifetime, though its just been a while

    Its been a year since I heard the news that Oh so terrible day.
    I never thought id lose you 'I'm not going anywhere' I'd heard you say.

    But you did, your gone... there's no getting you back.
    At Least I have my memories..of which I know for sure there is no lack!

    I miss you so much, there's still a void in my heart.
    I just wish we could have lived our lives not ever having to be apart.
    I've given up wishing you'd come back to fill this hole.
    You put it there a year ago when your body left your soul.

    I know your gone I just wish I'd known.
    So that the last time I spoke with you I could have kept you on the phone.
    I'd have told you how much I loved you and how forever I'd know your smile.
    And how I didn't think I could live without you.. not even for a while.

    Although your gone and out of sight your definitely not out of mind.
    You've flown away and not through choice you left us all behind.

    I hope you know we still think of you and how much you meant to us.
    And how you made me feel the way that now your gone...no-one else does.

    It's been a year and it's safe to say, I still think about you everyday, I might not hope or even pray I just love and miss you in my own special way ...
    (My best friend forever you will always stay.)

  22. 20. Only A Memory

    This poem is about a great person who got taken from us on Feb. 19 of 2006. Cameron Lund was the type of person that could make anyone laugh. He never had a frown on his face. You are missed big time Cam.
    We Love You

    Your smile, your laughter
    -Only a memory.
    Your voice, your personality
    -Only a memory.

    Sometimes people mention your name.
    Some just keep quiet.
    But no matter what is or isn't said.
    You're always on someone's mind.

    two years have gone by,
    But it seems like only yesterday,
    You were by your family's side.

    We can only think of who you'd be,
    To us, you only remain a memory.

    It's been a while since you've been gone.
    For your friends and family, things just aren't the same.
    It still doesn't seem real.
    Who holds the blame?

    If love could have saved you,
    You'd still be here today.
    The love we hold for you,
    Will never change.

    As you lay in a still rest,
    God broke our hearts to prove he took the best.
    Everything you did, everything you were.
    It's only a memory.
