Friendship Poems About Saying Goodbye

The hardest part of any friendship is when it's time to say goodbye. As much as we might like things to stay the same, change is an inevitable part of life. The universe may seem huge and the rift between friends on opposite side of the world may seem a great distance. There are many tools available with which we can communicate, but even without these tools there is a secret that only real friends know, and it is this. All the mountains and valleys in the world cannot separate friends whose hearts are as one.

    I write this poem for my friends during our graduation day in high school.

  5. 3. Because She Was My Best Friend

    • By Insha Jesani
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2015

    I wrote this poem for a class assessment, and when I showed it to my parents, they were really impressed. It's a poem of my own experiences, and everyone motivated me to publish it. So I thought I could just give it a try...

    Together we would laugh, together we would cry,
    With each other, we'd never be shy.
    We'd often fight, then sort it out,
    And at each other, we would never shout.

  8. 6. The Heart Of Friendship

    • By Sandra L. Pierce
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2007

    When there is a bond between two people that is deep, there is never reason to say goodbye, for they will always be connected, no matter how far away they really are.

    The bond of friendship is everlasting
    True friends never say goodbye
    There is pure truth between us
    That will never die

  10. 8. Farewell Words

    • By Gregory K.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2017

    I worked with people who helped me grow immensely, not just as a professional, but also as a person. As our time drew to a close and we all prepared to say goodbye, our emotions were running rampant. I created this poem as a parting gift for everyone to remember the good times...to fill the void left by our departure.

    Farewell words too often part
    And cleave with sorrow to aching hearts.
    With a final wave, all disappears
    Beneath the hush of silent tears

    • By Brittany
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2014

    This is a poem about making great friends and sharing so much with them but being forced to leave them suddenly. I'm a personal support worker and I wrote this poem for the family of a woman I assisted who I became quite close with. I did respite in their home for two years and just last week she passed away, bless her soul. She was 95.

    I am such a lucky soul
    To have friends as good as you
    'Cause when worries find their way to me
    And I'm unsure what to do...

    Value all times you have together, for they may end sooner than you think.

  17. 15. Goodbye To You, My "Friend"

    • By Denise Sarion
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I have a best friend named Jian. We always hang out together. Wherever I go, she goes. Wherever she goes, I go. We were like sisters! But one day Jian started to backstab me. I really couldn't believe her. Now she has other friends. She left me behind with her new popular friends. She forgot that I was the reason she was in that crowd. Now she treats me like a ghost. Like she couldn't even see me. I still hear stories of her backstabbing me, but I still miss her.

    We said we would be friends together until the end.
    You said you would always be my best friend.
    Then you stabbed me in the back.
    Now we've lost everything we had.

    We cannot always physically be with our friends, but they can always be with us in our hearts.

    We all go through life with the love of friends and family
    Even though we know they will all leave us eventually
    Never knowing where the future might lead you
    No worries though, there is a future for them too

    My name is Samantha. This poem is about me and my best friend, Hannah, who moved away. Hannah and I used to do everything together. Not a moment was spent apart. We were just like sisters. We loved all the same things and had such great times together. But Hannah moved very far away, and we haven't been able to keep in touch, and now my heart is broken. I never had a friend as great as her. I love you, Hannah!
