Short Poems about Friends

Being friends is about sharing our lives with others. There are some aspects of our lives that require that we spend a lot of time together or a lot of writing to help convey our feelings. Other times sharing only a few words are more than adequate. It is not always the long conversation that conveys the deepest feelings. Sometimes, longer modes of expression may seem redundant and lacking in profundity. Putting just the right combination of words on paper in a succinct style may just hit the spot.

  1. 1. Ode To Friendships


    • By Kayla Rae Pich
    • Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015 with permission of the Author.

    Friends...
    They're the few people who accept silence over conversation.
    A relationship like this denies silly promises and persuasion.
    You don't feel the need to second guess thoughts or measure words.

    A friend is like a star that twinkles and glows
