Poems about Best Friends

Best Friends means 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.

  1. 1. Best Friend

    I wrote this poem about my best friends, Jazz and Alexis. I can truly say they are amazing.

    Strength Of A Friendship

    You are my best friend; you belong in my heart.
    We go through ups and downs, but still nothing can tear us apart.
    I know you as a sister, and I will always care.
    Love, respect, and trust are the things we share.

    I know you as a person; I especially know you as a friend.
    Our friendship is something that will never end.
    Right now, this second, this minute, this day,
    Our sisterhood is here, is here to stay.

    My friendship with you is special and true.
    When we are together, we stick like glue.
    When I'm in the darkness that needs some light,
    When you're by my side, I know things are all right.

    Our friendship is so strong; it breaks down bars.
    Our friendship is also bright, like the sun and the stars.
    If we were in a competition for friendships, we would get a gold,
    Because responsibility and cleverness are the keys we hold.

    I met you as a stranger, took you as a friend.
    I hope our long friendship will never end.
    Our friendship is like a magnet; it pulls us together,
    Because no matter where we are, our friendship will last forever!

    Strength Of A Friendship, Best Friend

  3. 2. My Best Friend

    • By Sally J. Thompson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2020

    I wrote this poem in 1975, at 13 years old after I finished a test early.

    You're Always By My Side

    Whenever I am lonely,
    You're always by my side,
    And when I call to you for help,
    You never run or hide.

    You're with me when I need you.
    I hardly have to say,
    "I need you now, I'm lonely."
    You brighten every day.

    When shadows fall so dimly
    And crickets no more hide,
    I'm not afraid to slumber,
    For you'll be there by my side.

    You'll be my friend forever,
    Making every day more fun,
    And I'm glad that you are with me
    As another day is done.

    A friend is a wondrous thing to have,
    An earthly prayer come true,
    And daily I give thanks that I
    Found such a friend in you.

  5. 3. My Best Friend!

    • By Jana C. Souder
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007

    What can a friend do for me, and what must I do myself?

    I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts,
    or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
    search for answers.

    I can't change your past with all its heartache and pain,
    nor the future with its untold stories.
    But I can be there now when you need me to care.

    I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
    I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

    Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
    Yet I can share in your laughter.

    Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
    I can only support you, encourage you,
    and help you when you ask.

    I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,
    from your values, from me.
    I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.

    I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
    But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
    room to be yourself.

    I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
    But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
    and put them back in place.

    I can't tell you who you are.
    I can only love you and be your friend.

  6. 4. Through Thick And Thin

    • By Annie Hall
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    We all have friends (even best friends), but do they always know how much you truly care about them? Just because they aren't always with you, it doesn't mean they stop thinking about you and vice versa. Don't ever forget to tell them how much they mean to you. Whether near or far, true friendship is a bond that shall always remain.

    I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive.
    I could be in a car crash and still be alive.
    The clouds could fall out of the sky.
    The oceans could disappear and all turn dry.

    These things in life are all bad, I know,
    but there's far worse things, just thought you should know.

    Life would not be the same without someone like you.
    You're there when I need you to help me through.
    Through the good times and through the bad,
    Be them happy or be them sad.

    I don't have to be with you to know you're there.
    We don't have to see each other to know that we care.
    We could be apart for years upon end
    and still remain the best of friends.

    Life goes on, and people change,
    And through it all, our friendship shall remain the same.
    That's such as life and how things come to be.
    Just thought you should know how much you mean to me!

    Through Thick And Thin

  7. 5. I Am Always There - You're Never Alone

    • By Ashley Becker
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    This poem is about never being alone and always having someone who cares.

    When you're feeling down and blue,
    And life is being cruel to you,
    Just remember you're not on your own.
    I'm always there; you're never alone.
    You might not be able to see my face,
    As hard as you look around the place,
    But close your eyes and think of me,
    And before you know it, there will be me.
    Keep me in the midst of your mind,
    And life will seem easier, I think you'll find,
    So when life gets too dark to bear,
    Just close your eyes and I will be there.

    ABC Poem About Meaning Of True Friend

    Accepts you as you are
    Believes in you
    Calls you just to say Hi
    Doesn't give up on you.
    Envisions the whole of you even the unfinished parts.
    Forgives your mistakes
    Gives unconditionally
    Helps you
    Invites you over
    Just be with you
    Keeps you close at Heart
    Loves you for who you are
    Makes a difference in your life
    Never Judges
    Offers Support

    Quiets your fears
    Raises your spirits.
    Says nice things about you
    Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
    Understands You
    Values You.
    Walks beside you
    Explains things you don't understand
    Yells when you won't listen and
    Zaps you back to reality.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007

    If you want to stay best friends, this is a recipe for success.

    We are friends.
    I've got your back,
    And you have mine.
    I'll help you out
    Anytime!
    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!

    What is a best friend? How do you know when you have one?

    What Is A Friend

    A best friend is the one
    who you can
    talk to when no one is around
    A best friend is the one
    who you can
    love when everyone else has let you down
    A best friend is the one
    who you can

    you are there for me until the end

    I wrote this poem because I love my friends.

    Friends Change Our Lives

    I met you as a stranger, then took you as my friend.
    Our friendship is something that will never end.
    When I was in darkness that needed some light,
    You came to me and hugged me tight.

    You took my hands and dried my tears.
    You woke me up to end my fears.
    You took my hand and made me see
    That God has a special plan for me.

    You helped me laugh
    When I was sad.
    You made me tough
    When I felt bad.

    Our friendship made me see the light.
    Our friendship showed to me what was right.
    I hope our friendship will never bend.
    I hope our friendship will never end.

  12. 10. I'll Be There

    • By Nubia Valle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007

    A promise to a friend to be there no matter what.

    I'll be there
    When you feel lonely and frightened,
    When you need help with something,
    When you feel hopeless.

    I'll be there
    When you feel betrayed by someone you trusted,
    When you feel broken-hearted,
    When you are in difficult times.

    I'll be there
    When you fall,
    When you need a hug,
    When you need some love.

    I'll be there.
    No matter what happens,
    I'll be there.

    A Poem For Best Friends

    I still remember the first day we met.
    We were too shy to say much at all.
    It's funny to think back to that time,
    Because now we're having a ball!

    They say that true friendship is rare,
    An adage that I believe to be true.
    Genuine friendship is something that I cherish.
    I am so lucky to have met you.

    Our bond is extremely special.
    It is unique in its own way.
    We have something irreplaceable.
    I love you more and more each day.

    We've been through so much together.
    In so little time we've shared ,
    I will never forget all the moments
    That you've shown me how much you cared.

    Friends are forever,
    Especially the bond that you and I possess.
    I love your fun-filled personality.
    Somehow you never fail to impress.

    The world could use more people like you.
    It would certainly be a better place.
    I love everything about you.
    You are someone I could never replace.

    You are always there for me
    When my spirits need a little lift.
    I cannot thank you enough for that.
    You are truly an extraordinary gift.

    You are everything to me and more.
    I could never express that enough.
    Life is such a treacherous journey, and
    Without you it would be even more tough.

    Our story will continue to grow
    With each passing day,
    Because I trust that with you by my side,
    Everything will always be okay.

    You are so dear to me.
    You know I will love you until the end.
    I will always be there for you, and
    You will always (and forever) be my best friend.

    Friends are there to support each other through the rough patches of life.

    Thanking A Friend For Being There During Tough Times

    A friend like you is hard to find,
    one that touches you deep inside.
    You've given me strength to carry on,
    you've offered your hand to hold on.
    When times are tough, I know you're there
    to offer support and show you care.
    If not for you, I would have drowned,
    but you help keep me on solid ground.
    I believe you were sent from the man above
    because he knows the strength of your love.
    You show that love in so many ways.
    It helps me get through my darkest of days.
    So for that, I write this poem for you
    and tell you from my heart, THANK YOU!

    Poem About What True Friendship Means

    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.

    The friendship we have is so rare to find.
    We hate to see each other in a bind.
    We have made each other laugh so hard we've cried.
    We feel each other's pain if we are hurt inside.
    We always can find the right words to say
    To help us get through any dreadful day.
    We have told our darkest secrets with feeling no shame,
    We will tell each other the truth, even if we are to blame.
    Thinking of you not being here makes me feel so sad.
    We will have to look back on our crazy memories to make us glad.
    The miles between us can't keep us apart,
    Because we will keep each other close at heart.

    My best friend wrote this, and I think I would die without her.

    You Are My Angel

    You are my fallen angel,
    Right down from the sky,
    Saving me from heartbreak and tears,
    As well as all my greatest fears.

    Forever important you are to me.
    The greatest of friends we will always be.

    We laugh at even the smallest things.
    Then you sweep me up in your angel wings,
    And we fly through all our memories.

    The good, the bad, and the oh so sad.
    We will stick through it all until the end.
    At every corner and every bend,
    You are still there.

    Without you here I would waste away,
    Growing smaller with every day.

    You are my fallen angel,
    Right down from the sky.

    My sister, idol, and best friend.
    Without you, I think I would die.

    It may sound extreme,
    But it's only the truth...

    You are my fallen angel,
    Right down from the sky.
    You give so much to me
    That sometimes I think I can fly!


    Now, always, and forever :) BFFs!

    The feeling of having that special someone in your life

    I wanna be there for you, just like you're there for me.
    But sometimes all I wanna do is make you see that I love you with all my heart, I can't imagine us apart.
    You give me so much energy it's crazy because when I'm not with you my body is weak and lazy.
    I love your smile it drives me wild when your by my side all I want you to do is stay awhile.
    You understand who I am and no one does that, so that makes you my #1 fan.
    The touch of your hand sends me to a beautiful wonderland.
    I can always trust you and that's what real friends do.
    If you had to change something I wouldn't change a thing, cuz all you do is make my heart sing.
    I want you to be my best friend, so what does you think... should we begin to make this trend?

    • By Melissa Magaliff
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2008

    My best friend and I have always considered each other "best friends," but one day, shortly after we were in a HUGE fight, I was thinking about what it means to be best friends. I started to jot down my thoughts, and this is what it turned into. Enjoy!

    Best Friends,
    The title we chose,
    But what does it mean to be "best friends"?
    You should see each other every day?
    Well that's not true for you and me.
    Should silly little fights get in our way?
    Only if that's how it's meant to be.
    Should we give?
    Should we borrow?
    Should we dance like there's not tomorrow?
    Secrets are traded,
    Privacy invaded,
    Hugs and smiles are shared,
    Tears are shed,
    Love is spread.
    We know that we both really cared.
    I smile, you smile.
    You cry, I cry.
    I wish, you wish.
    You die, I die.
    If you fall,
    I'll help you up,
    And if you call,
    I'll always pick up.
    Best Friends Forever...
    The promise we made,
    And I know in my heart
    That it will never fade.

    God Sent Me You At A Moment In My Life
    When He Knew I Needed A Companion
    Only He Knew Who Was Best For Me
    And Knew Everyplace I Had Been

    As The Gift Of A Companion Like You
    I Pray Everyday As Our Companionship Grows
    That You'll Let Me Be There For You
    I'll Ask The Lord To Soothe You
    On Days You're Feeling Blue
    And When Those Tears Are In Your Eyes

    Dedicated to a true friend

    To a friend who has always been there, to a friend who has listened to all my pain.
    Thanks to you, I have someone to turn to, someone to run to when things go wrong.
    All the frowns I've worn that you've turned into smiles.
    All the times I wanted to die, you have led me the way. Thanks goes to you.
    Without you, my life would be like the moon without the stars.
    I would have no one to brighten my horizons and widen my spirits.
    No one can come close to measure up to all the things that you've done for me.
    Letter by letter my spirits were lifted, and I knew that if I ever needed you, you were there.
    So thanks goes to you for everything. For giving me sight for tomorrow.
    Thanks to you, I have someone to live for, someone to look forward to.
    Thanks for always being there, for believing in me and our friendship!
