Touching Friendship Poems

People come into our life disguised as angels, and sometimes angels come into our life disguised as people. It is possible to see God anywhere. All it takes are open eyes and ears and the willingness to see miracles. They are everywhere. God is as available as we are. Having friends that inspire us to rise to higher and greater levels is an awesome gift. Surround yourself with people that inspire you to do better and inspire your friends as well. It is a profound truth that the people we spend time with shape the path that we travel.

  3. 2. Here's To That Friend

    This poem is about all of the different friendships that we have in life that are so instrumental in creating who were are as people.

    The Friendships Of Life

    Here's to that very first friend that I made.
    The one who said "yes" when I asked her to play.
    Whose name I'd repeat over and over again
    So astounded and grateful that she was my friend.

    And here's to that friend who grew up by my side,
    Who so graciously came along for the ride.
    Who was privy to all of my grand hopes and dreams
    And complicit in all of my hair-brained schemes.

    All hail to that friend ever loyal and true,
    Who was just as naïve about what we should do.
    We were sisters who faced new adventures each day
    Testing the waters on our long wending way.

    Praise to that friend who knew all of my pain,
    Who kept every secret silent and safe.
    The one who would hold me whenever I cried
    And then still made me laugh till it ached inside.

    Thank God for that friend so much smarter than me,
    Who I willingly followed as she took the lead.
    Much more adept at learning the ropes,
    She was the one who taught me the most.

    And God bless that friend who would never condemn
    No matter the messes I'd put myself in.
    Who accepted my frailties and frustrating flaws
    And would still lift me up when I'd flounder and fall.

    And thank you forever that dearest of friends
    Who showed me what being a friend truly meant.
    Who gave me the chance to be one myself
    And be someone of value to somebody else.

    How I miss that dear friend who drifted away
    Whose life took her sadly to some other place.
    But I know in my heart even though we lost track
    If I called her today, she would still have my back.

    Friendship's a gift that we're granted in life
    A force to take with us against the tough fight.
    But the greatest blessing when it's all said and done
    Is to have all those friendships in that One special One!

  5. 3. It's Really Up To You

    Lighthearted, positive, uplifting message of inspiration to create for yourself a new friendship or the life of your dreams for it's all just ONE step away.

    One word can start a friendship,
    One kiss a love affair,
    One smile can bring you laughter,
    One hug can show you care,
    One wave of your hand can say hello,
    One tear can make you cry,
    One gentle touch can warm a heart,
    One dream can make you fly,
    One song can bring back memories,
    One thought sees brighter days,
    One wish can bring colourful rainbows,
    One good deed can bring you praise,
    One moon can light your darkness,
    One star can guide your soul,
    One step will start each journey,
    One hope to make your goal,
    One hand to hold in friendship,
    One heart that's kind and true,
    One Love...One friend, is all you need,
    It's really up to you.

    The poem is my way of saying, "I wish you well and that your life will be rich and full."

    May your blessings be many
    and your troubles be few.
    And may you feel God's presence

    go with you an extra mile.

    May you know joy and gladness
    and have a life of peace.
    And may your load grow lighter
    and all your cares decrease.

    May your sleep be ever so sweet
    as you retire each night.
    And when you wake each morning,
    may your burdens feel light.

    May mercy and grace follow you
    every minute of every day.
    And may you feel the love of God
    As you go on your way!

  7. 5. If I Could

    • By Lydia C. Dunne
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2017

    I wrote this poem to a guy I met online. We get on so well that if I could give him the world, I would. But alas, that's impossible, so I can only give him what I can and that's my friendship and love.

    Poem About The Gift Of Friendship And Love

    If I could catch a rainbow,
    I'd do so just for you
    So you could share its beauty
    On the days you're feeling blue.

    If I could, I'd buy an island
    You could call it your very own,
    A place to find serenity,
    Where you could be alone.

    If I could take your troubles
    I'd throw them in the sea,
    But all these things I'm finding
    Are impossible for me.

    'Cause I can't buy an island
    Nor catch a rainbow fair,
    So I'll just do what I do best:
    Be someone who's always there.

  8. 6. My Special Friend

    This is the angel I'm sure we all have had at one time or another. Dave was mine to the very end.

    Uplifting Poem About Friendship

    God blessed me one sunny day.
    He sent me an angel from so far away
    To love and help me though all my woes,
    To guide and stand by me when I face my foes.

    Then one day God called her back
    I missed my angel, so I followed her tracks.
    Now in heaven all safe and sound,
    I see my angel flying around.

    Now it's my turn to do a good deed.
    I'm sent back to earth to help people in need,
    So when life's lessons are getting you down,
    Don't sit there sulking and wearing a frown.

    Sit back and reflect all the good times you've seen,
    Like weddings, birthdays and places you've been.
    Think yourselves lucky because we are still here
    To hold the memories of loved ones so dear.

    • By Brooke M. Van Pelt
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2018

    I have always struggled to be myself because I was so focused on being the person others wanted to see. This is about me and my friends and how they were always there for me when I needed to be picked up from the ground.

    Inspirational Message For Friend About Being Yourself

    I know you wish you were perfect,
    That you could just say what was on your mind,
    But you have to learn to love yourself,
    And that could take some time.

    You need to stop dreaming,
    And just let your thoughts go.
    Stop trying to be perfect,
    And let your dreams flow.

    Sometimes life has its twists and turns.
    You just have to find your way,
    Because you can get through it,
    No matter what people say.

    Though some people will try to tear you down,
    We will help you get up,
    And we will always be your steady
    That's there for the cleanup.

    Because I know you wish you were perfect,
    But you're everything and more,
    And sometimes when you feel tied down,
    You just need to spread your wings and soar.

  10. 8. By Your Side

    • By Simmonds
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2014

    I wrote this poem after seeing this one picture. It had a guy sitting down and looking down, and a girl sitting next to him. The guy was saying, "I'm all alone," and the girl was saying, "I'm here." The guy was completely unaware of the girl's presence, as he wasn't looking up. This poem is from the girl's perspective and how she feels. She must have felt so sad from being neglected day after day by the boy. But even though it was sad, she still would have stayed with him, until the very end.

    Poem About What Friends Will Do For Each Other

    If you feel there's nothing else to do,
    If you think no one's here for you,
    Turn your head and look at me,
    Because by your side I'll always be.

    Through today, unto tomorrow,
    I'll help you get through this sorrow.
    Holding your hand, right by your side,
    Together we can spread our wings and fly.

    Away from this terrible place,
    To a land where happiness is all that we'll face.
    Together, forever, just you and I,
    Lost in happiness, side by side.

    But, alas, it's all just a dream,
    As you hang here, in front of me,
    So I step up and brace for the fall,
    By your side, flying once more.

  12. 10. An Angel Named Amanda

    • By Summer Matlick
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007

    Some friends are so perfect for us that they are put into the category of angels. We know that they could only have been sent by God.

    An Angel For A Friend

    I have the greatest friend on earth,
    Sisters by God but not by birth.
    I owe her a lot for all she has done for me.
    Without her in my life, I am not sure where I'd be.
    We will be best friends forever until we die.
    We have certain jokes that no one would understand but her and I.
    Together we share our life story.
    We look for good in other's glory.
    She is amazing every single day.
    I admire and look up to her in every way,
    She understands me and I don't have to explain.
    She brings her sunshine to the rain.
    Someone sent by God to do great things,
    One of heaven's angels with no visible wings.
    If you ever meet her, then you will see
    Why she is the definition of the greatest friend to me.
    Thanks for always being there for me;
    You have shown me just how best friends should be!

  13. 11. Come Fly With Me

    • By Jenny Whitworth
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    This poem was written to encourage my cousin to come out of her darkness and allow me to guide her to the shining light. Both of us suffered as children to childhood sexual abuse. She is set to see that we can't change what happened in our past, but we can change the future. I pray for her every day.

    Friends Walking Together

    Walk with me along the path,
    And reach up toward the sky.
    I'll be right beside you,
    Through each new thing you try.
    And anytime you're ready,
    I'll give you wings to fly.

    If you've come upon some roadblocks
    That you struggle to get through,
    Just know that I have gone ahead
    To clear the path for you.
    And soon you'll find the place
    That you have been walking to.

    Walk with me, talk with me.
    I'll hear each laugh and cry.
    I'll be your help in trouble,
    Your protector and ally,
    And anytime you're ready,
    I'll give you wings to fly.

    No matter how special you are, you need someone to listen to you and be your friend.

    Poem About Giving Time For A Friend

    Everyone, young or old,
    Needs someone to listen
    As their stories are told.

    The difference is yours to make.
    A minute from your busy day
    Is all it would take.

    Take a minute and lend an ear.
    Listen intently
    To what you hear.

    Take a minute and you will see
    Just how powerful
    Listening can be.

    Take a minute to offer a smile and a touch.
    Your sincerity
    Means so much.

    Take a minute and simply be kind.
    A friend for life
    May be what you find.

    Poem For A Loved One With Depression

    My darling, my girl,
    Why are you so sad?
    Why can't you see that life is not all bad?
    You're my angel.
    Please don't cry,
    I don't understand, so please tell me why?
    Your beautiful face,
    Your fading smile,
    I vow to make you happy for more than just a while.
    You're so precious,
    Why can't you see?
    I beg you to break that chain,
    Then you'll be free.
    The past is gone,
    It's not going to change,
    But the future is yours...
    For you to arrange,
    Live your life,
    Be happy, don't cry.

    I'm young, barely a teenager, and am inspired by a lot of things. Family, friends, love. I'm often involved in love stories with my friends, and this just popped in my head one day. I like to write to help let go of my emotions. Hope you like my future poems.

    If I could erase your troubles
    And throw them in the sea,
    Where the world would just be
    You and me.
    If I could build a mountain,
    You could call it your own
    To make life there
    And build a home.
    If I could make your love come true,
    Every second of life I'd be with you.
    If I could make a moon
    For the darkness it would erase,
    I would carve on it alone
    Your angelic face.
    If I could make an ocean full of blue,
    I'd make sure that the only swimmer was you.
    If I could blend hearts to make the world fine,
    I'd blend your heart with mine,
    Catch you and hold you for all the days to come.
    Together, our life is already won.

    • By Skylar
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2008

    I was just having a bad day and needed to talk to someone. I wished that I had an angel, someone that was really special, that I could tell anything to, that was all I really needed.

    Ever mess up and can't fix your mistake?
    Only have one friend, cause they're too hard to make?
    Ever feel alone, by yourself in the world,
    sit in bed at night as your brain starts to twirl?
    Ever been hurt so badly that you can't recover?
    No one to talk to,
    not a friend sister or brother.
    All you got left to do is pray,
    pray for a better way,
    'cause when life gives you trouble, what can you do?
    Pray that God sends an angel to you,
    'cause if you had an angel to brighten your smile
    sit and talk to you once in a while,
    imagine your problems disappear.
    If only a friend would appear.
    So pray; pray for a better way.
    It's all you got left to do.
    Pray God sends an angel to you.

  19. 17. Full Of Love

    • By Ashley M. Lawson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007

    A heart once thought to be closed forever has been touched by an angel in the form of a mother and may never be the same.

    They never knew the hurt inside,
    I always tried to smile with pride,
    They don't know how I really feel,
    I never try to talk and heal,
    I always come across so tough,
    But in the end it's not enough,
    I never have been truly loved,
    That's when she came,
    Full of love, her arms open,
    Now without her it's not the same,
    She loves me so,
    Now I know,
    She's on my side,
    Our hearts to never divide.
    I love you mom.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    I have really close friends that are afraid of opening up because of the life that they lived. This is for them in the hope that they can one day open up.

    Poem Asking Friend To Trust You

    After I knew the person you showed the world,
    I searched for the person you are.
    He was nowhere around
    Where was he to be found?
    Behind the person you wear?
    Can I see you without him there?

    There are walls set up
    Life has never let up
    They have saved you in the past
    The area they cover is vast.

    If only I could spend sometime in your mind
    Then I could truly see what makes you one of a kind
    But, I'd rather you be able to open up and tell me
    The door has been locked from the world, you see?

    I want to be the key to your sanctuary
    Let go of the hardships that you no longer need to carry
    I will share in the weight
    I will take it off your plate

    Do you know how it feels to be able to share in pain?
    For someone to be there throughout the strain.
    I know you don't want to bother loved ones
    When I want to help, that is no reason to run

    I want you to feel the serenity that comes from trust
    Life does not always have to be unjust
    So let go and fall into me
    I'll be here forever, you'll see.

    I Will Be There For You During Difficult Times

    If I was an angel,
    I would always be there to take care of you.
    If I was an angel,
    Nothing would ever harm you.
    If I was an angel,
    I would prevent anything bad from happening to you.
    If I was an angel,
    I'd give you a star that would light your way on days of sadness and on dark nights without a moon.
    If I was an angel...
    But I'm not, I'm only mortal.
    I can't see the future,
    And I can't always be by your side,
    I can't prevent tragedies from happening,
    I don't have special powers and I'm not sure of any advice that I may give you.
    I sometimes think about the things I would do if I was an angel,
    And I get sad because I can't liberate you.
    Sad I am when you fall and I can't help you up.
    But what can someone like me do?
    I can only offer my love and unconditional friendship,
    Ask God to always take care of you and protect you,
    And thank life for giving me a chance to know you and being a part of your life.
    Count on me today, tomorrow, and always.

    It is scary to share your dreams with another. Will she respect and love them like you do, or will she laugh that you even dreamed daring dreams. Do you have the strength for friendship?

    Come with me and share your dreams
    we'll sit on clouds and float down streams
    we'll laugh together as we play
    and you'll tell me your dreams throughout the day
    come on now don't be shy
    you don't have to worry for we won't say goodbye
    take my hand we shall fly like a dove
    we don't have to come down, we'll forever float above
    I care about your thoughts and dreams
    I'd shine on you all the sun beams
    you don't have to lie to me, you don't have to be fake
    say whatever you want, I know its something I can take
    there are no rules with me, do what ever you want all day long
    the only thing I ask is that you tell me your dreams and be strong
    so come with me and share your dreams
    we'll sit on clouds and float down streams.
