Poems about Best Friends

Scientists have discovered that there is one thing above all else that determines the lasting power of a friendship. Many people guess that it is the ability to communicate that determines the quality of a friendship. In actuality, studies have shown that friends who have the most fun together are most likely to stay together. Fun is a difficult word to define and yet we know when we are having it. It is a difficult thing to predict and yet there are some friends that we have fun with almost every time we get together. Fun is the key factor in a lasting friendship.

  1. 1. No Other Friend

    • By Shyanne Weyandt
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    I wrote this for one of my best friends so she knows how much she means to me.

    No other friend is quite like you.
    No other friend could do exactly what you do.
    No other friend could listen to my dreams,
    No matter how weird it all seems.

  3. 2. Friendship Is The Best Ship Of All

    When someone stumbles through life not knowing where to go, their friends are always there for each other. We should never trade friends (and family) for anything.

    Valerie M. is eleven years old. She wrote this poem for a Poems and Quotes project for her class. This poem is dedicated to her best friends: Aliya, Viviene, Chris, and Brandon.

    Friendship is priceless
    And can never be forgotten.
    Friendship is timeless
    And never rotten.

  5. 3. Real Friends

    • By Olivia
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2010

    I'm 13 years old and SO thankful that I have my friends! They've helped me through so much, and these words don't even begin to describe how appreciative I am towards them. Thank you.

    There's this little thing called friendship.
    I experience it every day,
    And I will always be thankful that I have friends,
    Because they have helped me along the way.

  6. 4. To My Best Friend

    • By Ben U Ushie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2018

    I wrote this poem when my best friend and I were growing distant. There is nothing more painful than losing someone you truly care about, so I wrote it to her hoping it would help, and it did.

    The distance between us makes me feel sad
    Because I still remember all the good times we had.
    We used to talk for hours and hours on end,
    But now we're growing distant and I need you, my friend.

  7. 5. What Friendship Is

    • By Kaylee E Jones
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    I am only 12, but I enjoy writing poems. This poem is about my best friends in the whole world, and I moved across the country from them, so I can't see them anymore. I miss them to death.

    You were there for me when I needed you.
    You cared for me when I cried to you.
    You fought for me when I couldn't stand.
    You held me up with a giving hand.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2007

    I wrote this poem thinking about all my friends and how without them, growing up would be so hard. So keep your friends close and be there for them like they are for you.

    when I needed someone
    you were the one
    when I felt fear
    you were always here

  9. 7. Friendship: One Of God's Greatest Gifts

    • By Lauren Manning
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    My best friend Lacey and I met in daycare when we were three years old. Another girl in daycare yanked a book out of Lacey's hand and made her cry, and that is how our friendship began!! Truly, my life would not be the same without her, and I am grateful to God for her.

    I was the young age of three,
    and oh, so very small.
    I knew almost nothing,
    nothing at all.

  11. 9. Every Time I See You

    • By Samantha
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2012

    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!

    Every time I see you,
    my heart melts with happiness.
    You make me laugh.
    You make my heart sing.

  12. 10. If You Had Never Come

    This is a poem about friendship and the joys of having them. Also, many of the lines are influenced by actual experiences with friends.

    If you had never come, I'd have never learned to laugh.
    My sandwiches would still be whole, and never cut in half.
    My voice would have never changed to high, or low.
    You would love my favorite band, and I would never know.

  13. 11. Forgotten

    • By Meghan Harrington
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2013

    I met my best friend in 7th grade. We got really close in the past 3 years. We told each other everything and were sisters. When I went through depression, she was there. Then she started dating a guy. We had a rule that we are more important than a guy. Lately I've been cut out and forgotten. We stopped hanging out and talking. She had him instead. That's when the depression came back. I cried myself to sleep at night. I had no one. I started cutting but recently found poetry as a better outlet.

    In the beginning we had a rule.
    Only one rule.
    Easy, right?
    We are more important than a guy.

    • By Casey
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    I wrote this about my best friend since kindergarten. but I am not so sure we are best friends anymore. We are two completely different people. I am more a fan of the "be yourself" type group, and she is more a fan of the "I'll do anything to get attention and be popular" type group. I'm just hoping that everything will be okay between us.

    We had our good days and we had our bad,
    I thought I would never forget the times we had.

    In search of a friend that will take the time to look beneath the surface and get to know the real me.

  16. 14. Best Friends Forever

    To my best and dearest friend, Jennifer. Love for a friend, so truer words I do not know. Like they say, "Best friends are sisters that destiny forgot to give you." Stay with me always, and walk along beside me truly.. forever and always, just like you have been for the last 5 years.

    Every time I trusted someone, it blew up in my face,
    for I have no grace.
    But I've found my one true sound.
    The one girl who I care for will be just fine

  17. 15. I Still Remember

    • By Braden Turner
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2015

    I wrote this poem about my best friend and I having to part ways when my father lost his job. I grew up in a small town, and if I wasn't at his house, he was at mine; we were essentially brothers. I was 12 at the time of this, and now I'm 16. Looking back, the move was one of the hardest things I've ever done. Going to a new place was hard for me, because I was born with a defect in my left hand, which really makes it hard for me to meet new people. He was my best friend, and still is today.

    I still remember
    Those mid-summer evenings
    When we'd swim with the stars,
    Or those muggy-hot ball games

  18. 16. What Is A Best Friend?

    • By John Devaney
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2010

    Well if you ask me that is how I honestly feel what a best friend is. I'm 16 so you can imagine how many friends I have, but I love writing so I just chose to write a poem about best friends because I always seem to be stabbed in the back or am treated with disrespect after helping what are supposed to be my "Best Friends".

    A Best Friend is a great thing to have.
    They're someone you can always lean or depend on when you're sad.
    They're always there when time in need.
    They're always there pushing you to succeed.

    I had a very good friend in middle school, but during our teenage years we lost contact. This poem is about what I felt at that time.

    You were my best friend.
    We did everything with each other.
    We shared every tear
    And felt each other's fear.
