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.

53 Poems for When a Good Friend Dies

  1. 1. 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.

  3. 2. 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...

  5. 3. 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

  7. 5. 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.

  8. 6. 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.

    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.

  10. 8. 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."

    In A Better Place

    I know you are in a better place,
    But I miss looking at your face.
    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.

  12. 10. Friend Died At Young Age

    One of my closest friend passed away and she was only 16.

    You left at such a young age.
    We had so much to do in such little time,
    But now that you died, my world has collapsed.
    The day you slipped from me was the day
    I slipped from myself.
    Since you've been gone,
    Nothing has been the same.
    I've been locked down in these chains
    Like a hallow tree stuck in the ground
    And can never be free.
    You left without a sound
    And left me there to drown.
    My pillow was all warm and wet.
    I couldn't believe you left.
    Now you're gone forever
    While I'm stuck in this world of hate
    With a heart full of pain.
    I wish everything could change
    So I could have you here with me,
    Instead of you being so far away
    Because this isn't fair
    That you left at such a young age.

  13. 11. A Poem For You

    • By Sondra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2010

    This is a poem dedicated to a very intimate friend of mine who was murdered Sunday April, 13, 2008. Black on black crime is a real issue and affects my community every day! This is the first time I lost someone so close to my heart and some days I don't know how to deal.
    What is funny is that I went 3 months without seeing him after we broke up, only phone calls here and there. And the day before he died I run into him at the grocery store and later he called and we talked like old times.
    The night I got the call I was lying in my dorm thinking about him and I said to myself I'm gonna call Tony tomorrow... But tomorrow never came for him and sometimes I feel like it never came for me either.

    REST IN PEACE
    SANTONIO RODRIGO CHRISTIAN
    Nov 14, 1988 - Apr 13, 2008

    For A Murdered Friend

    Everyday I wake up
    Realizing that you are gone
    Reality keeps forcing me
    To accept that you are done

    Finished with all the chaos
    This earthly world can bring
    Through with all the pain and problems
    And all those simple things

    Am I so selfish to wish that you
    Were here alive on earth?
    Am I wrong to wish you back
    Just so I won't hurt?

    All the things I never said
    Strong feelings I never shared
    I took your love for granted and put you off
    Because I just knew you would always be there

    I pushed you away because I needed space
    To be young, live the college life, and grow
    But I was gonna get back right with you
    I swear
    But now you'll never know

    You left behind family and friends
    Lovers and colleagues the same
    I still can't believe those boys that day
    That bullet
    It must've had your name

    But now you're gone
    They took your life
    I'm sure for no worthy cause
    Am I wrong for hoping
    They can't sleep at night
    For motivating this unjust loss?

    But it is me who lies awake
    At night thinking about you
    What ifs and why nots run through my mind
    Sometimes I hate that I fell in love with you

    No matter how hard I cry or pray
    I know you're not coming back to me
    I'll never forget the around-the-face kisses
    Your love for me ran deep

    I thank God everyday for granting me
    Your presence on Saturday before you died
    I hadn't seen you in months
    And there you were, that day, to my surprise

    I can only wait until the day
    That we'll meet again
    I know that you will still be you
    Funny, crazy, a friend

    You were never perfect
    You weren't an angel by far
    But damn boy you were you
    And even before you died
    I knew I would never be able
    To replace you

    Your smile, your eyes
    Your laughter, your words
    Are embedded in my mind
    And forever you'll live in my heart and dreams
    Until the end of my life

  14. 12. Forever In My Heart

    • By Gabi Abbott
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2012

    A poem about my friend. Through everything you are missed.

    I miss your smile,
    I miss your laugh.
    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.

    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.

  16. 14. I Watched Him Die

    • By Laura
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2008

    I wrote this poem from deep within my heart. It is a true poem and I would like to share my version of events the day my friend lost his life. It is about my friend. He was stabbed at my school. I watched him die. I was only 12 when he died and I miss him very much.

    It was a cold and windy November day,
    When my friend sadly passed away.
    This was the day when a boy with a knife,
    took away my friends life.

    I shut my eyes,
    praying it was just a dream,
    But unfortunately it was reality,
    the most awful thing I had ever seen.

    The knife in his killer's hand went in to him like a dart and ripped his heart apart.

    I can still remember his last screams,
    and the fear in his eyes,
    And his last words were
    "I don't want to die"

    I can still see him lying there on the ground,
    with his own blood all around.

    As great big tears rolled down his face,
    His killer left without a trace.

    He was only 14,
    such young age to die,
    and it was all because of a boy and a knife.

    I remember my deputy head,
    looking down on him,
    And I kept thinking to myself,
    Why isn't she helping him?

    He killed my friend and I will never forgive him,
    For all the pain his killer's put me through and my friend's family too.

    I watched him die,
    there was nothing I could do,
    And as he died,
    a part of me died too.

    Now his killer has a life sentence in jail,
    Which is good enough for me,
    As in my eyes,
    Behind bars is were he should be.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    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

  18. 16. You

    This poem is dedicated to my friend Alex who died just two months before he finished his senior year. His smile, laugh, and just himself has been sorely missed.

    Friend Died Before Graduation Poem

    Flashing lights red white and blue
    All those people you once knew
    People crowd around the car
    The twisted metal is badly charred
    The beeping stops and all go quiet
    Not a breath comes from among the riot
    An anguished medic shouts clear
    Think of the people who hold you dear
    No pulse, no beat, a silent scream
    No one to wake from this horrid dream
    A life so great is now lost
    The price came at a deadly cost
    The change you made in my life
    Tearing at me like a knife
    I hear your laughter and your voice
    I remember your smile like I have no choice
    You are my hero day and night
    No everything is not going to be all right
    I will never forget what you did
    You were even the greatest kid
    I miss you more and more every day
    I always will come not matter what may come
    I never really got the chance to say it.....
    I love you Alex with all my soul
    You left me with a great and gaping hole

    I'm sorry for your loss. I've lost someone the same way. His name was Dominic. I miss him. All of us do. I wish he never left, and the bad thing is we weren't on good standing before he left.

  19. 17. 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!

  20. 18. 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.

  21. 19. Cancer Stole My Friend

    • By Serena Oritz
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    Ever feel like cancer stole your friend? Ever think if cancer only knew what a great person your friend was, maybe it wouldn't have taken them?

    Poem About Wanting More Time With A Friend

    Cancer took my best friend, don't you see?
    Time was a ticking bomb thrust in me.
    Did black cats traverse my way?
    Did bad luck linger over me day to day?
    If cancer would have examined my heart,
    Would angels be grabbing you to depart?
    If I knew our bond was made of an hour glass,
    I'd pile stacks of love around your heart, make cancer pass
    To give me those last ticking moments and make them exquisite,
    Make our friendship stand on cement for us no longer having to split.
    If cancer had any idea what beauty laid within your soul,
    I can promise it would have seen the glow.
    I saw it the moment we became friends.
    Tick...tick...tock...my heart will burst when time ends.
    Silence began moments ago,
    When a voice said its time to let go.
    No!...please!...no!
    Tick...
    Tick...
    Tock...
    I could not stop the
    Clock...
    Cancer stole my
    Friend.

  22. 20. Goodbye Allen

    • By Sandy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

    This poem is about my best friend and brother Allen Glodo that died on August 1st. Ever since then, everything with me has gone to hell and I made this for him a while ago, I just didn't have the time to put it up. May Allen rest in peace! :'(

    Rest In Peace

    Everyday I stare at your picture,
    the vivid look on your smiling face,
    tears fall on that picture,
    as I sit there, tears falling on my tear stained cheeks.

    you died at such a young age,
    why did it have to happen to you,
    you were my best friend, my brother,
    and I never get to see you again.

    it was a horrible accident,
    that car taking you away from me,
    that feeling in my heart knowing,
    just knowing that you were drifting away from me.

    When I heard you died,
    my heart broke in two,
    I couldn't breathe,
    my body was shutting down.

    That day I saw you,
    your body was cold, your face white,
    as white as a ghost.
    I held back on the tears, till the ceremony began.

    When I went to that podium with your fiancée,
    the tears were in her eyes as I held her hand,
    tears falling fast on my cheeks,
    faster than a waterfall in the forests.

    I sat down when she was done,
    I couldn't say anything,
    I buried my face in my hands and sobbed,
    the last words in my heart said, "goodbye Allen"
