Special Friend Poems

Poems about Love and Friendship

You may meet a person and instantly know that you will be best friends forever. Other friendships develop over an extended period of time. In some friendships you may feel a sense of equality, while in others there may be a clear sense that one is giving more to the friendship then the other. There are no rules about how a friendship has to be. If you are able to share your life with another human being, by all means go right ahead. All friendships are unique and special in their own way. Each one is valuable.

  3. 2. Bonds Of Friendship

    • By Craig Burkholder
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2014

    This poem was written for a very special childhood friend that I reconnected with after many years. I was experiencing turmoil from a tragic personal situation, and she was suddenly reintroduced into my life. She is an amazing listener and friend, and I'll love her always. Thank you, Dawn.

    From the day that I first knew you,
    Your heart was pure and kind;
    Your smile was sweet and innocent,
    Your wit was well refined.

  5. 3. Our Friendship

    • By Marcia M. Griffith
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007

    Sometimes we forget to tell the people that we love most how precious they are, but it's never too late.

    As I think of our friendship, I begin to see
    Mere words can't describe what you mean to me.
    When this cold, hard world has me lonesome and blue,
    I look up to see my angel, my sweet angel, you.

    • By Kaitlyn M. Yawn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    This poem is about the great impact that friends can have on each other's lives.

    And made me who I am.

  7. 5. You Were There

    I was going through a really hard time in my life, and I honestly don't think I would be here if it weren't for my best friend. She was there for me when no one else was.

    When tears fell from my eyes,
    you were there to brush them away.
    When I was lost in confusion,
    you were there to say that everything would be okay.

  8. 6. You Are My World

    • By Chelsea
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2010

    This is to a beloved friend who I haven't seen in about a year. She means a lot to me, and I found this poem I gave to her about 2 years ago. I hope you like it.

    You're the thought that starts each morning,
    the conclusion to each day.
    I envision you in all that I do
    and everything I say.

  9. 7. The Arrow And The Song

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow lived from 1807-1882. During this time, he traveled a lot and learned various languages. In this poem, Longfellow compares the arrow to life, and the songs are compared to feelings. Even though songs (feelings) are unseen, they are still real. The arrow could also be compared to negative words shot from our mouths, and the song could be joyful words shared with others.

    I shot an arrow into the air,
    It fell to earth, I knew not where;
    For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
    Could not follow it in its flight.

    I wrote this about my best friend because she is amazing and the best friend I've ever had, and I wanted to share it. This is my first posted poem. I hope you enjoy.

  11. 9. Long-Lost Friends

    I wrote this poem about seeing an old friend again after a long time and how good it feels.

    To see that face you've missed so much,
    To feel that warmth inside.
    To see how much you mean to them,
    Reflected in their eyes.

  12. 10. A Friend Is...

    I'm a regular girl with a regular life and regular friends. Without my friends, I wouldn't be the person I am. I'm not going to say their names, but if you're reading this, you know who you are. I've read this list over and over, and not one of the conditions doesn't apply to my BFFs. They're supportive, encouraging, funny, and kind. Nothing beats having friends - true friends - and hopefully this poem will help you realize what a friend is.

    A friend is a person
    who has always has your back,
    a person
    who has faith in you and says that you can.

  14. 12. A Kind-Hearted Angel

    • By Arianna
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2020

    I recently met a very kind, sweet soul that I am honored to now call my friend. They have made me so happy in such a short amount of time, and try as I might to thank this person, they always manage to be kinder and sweeter than I could ever find the words to thank them. I made this poem to try to express how thankful I am to have them appear in my life so suddenly. This poem is short but sweet, and I hope they know how thankful I am that we met.

    Your kindness has been blessed to me
    From the stars above.
    Your words all fill my heart with joy
    And the utmost love.

  15. 13. For Julie

    • By Doogie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2019

    I'm no poet, but I enjoy poetry. I never thought I would ever be posting a poem online, but then I also never thought I would meet Julie, the most amazing woman who has ever come into my 62-year-old life. There's not enough space here to tell the story, but in any case the story has only just begun. Why am I posting this poem? Because I want the world to know that it's never too late in life to find your destiny. When I found Julie, I found mine.

    Many things can make me happy, many things can make me smile,
    many things can make life wonderful, make it all seem so worthwhile.
    But nothing makes me happier than the special friend I've found.
    Life couldn't feel more wonderful whenever you're around.

  18. 16. Other People

    • By Alan Steinle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    This poem provides a contrast between heaven and hell, as revealed by our relationships. Since we are all related and connected, our thoughts, words, and actions have a very real effect on others. The extent to which we value and affirm ourselves and others is the extent to which we create heaven on earth. And the extent to which we emphasize the mistakes of ourselves and others is the extent to which we create hell on earth.

    Hell is other people.
    -Jean-Paul Sartre

    • By Heidi Davin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007

    In this poem a friend bares her heart and shares how special their friendship is.

    Whenever I think of the times we've shared together,
    I'm reminded of the pains and heartaches we've had to weather.
    It seems no matter what's going on,
    To find comfort, we don't have to wait too long.

    What is a friend? What can a friend do for you, and what you can do for your friend?
    I wrote this for a friend who helped me over some really bad times.

    A person who will listen and not condemn,
    Someone on whom you can depend.
    They will not flee when bad times are here.
    Instead, they will be there to lend an ear.
