I once had a friend, that no matter how hard we tried we always ended up in disagreements. This poem was written to let him know that no matter our arguments, our friendship would always be there.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems - Poems about Lost Friends

Quiet Emotions
I always wanted more from you
than you were willing to give;
So now we've gone our separate ways
each with different lives to live.

The bond will always be there
the friendship always intact;
But the time for us has come and gone
and the pages of time, you can't turn back.

I will always be a friend to you
and wonder how you are;
The smiles and laughter I will remember
and our fights have become painless scars.

Sometimes on those busy days
when you've a thousand things to do;
Please let me glide slowly through your mind
and spend some time with you.

In that quiet moment
when you're surprised to find me there;
Just remember even with the distance between us
I am still someone who cares.

    This reminds me of my ex bestfriend he was like a brother to me, we did everything together. then one day he just thought that i did something wrong but he just doesnt understand that i didnt do anything to him but i guess that alright. but this is really good. I give u props on this its very good!

    I have had a friend for 34 years. I always try to be there for her. She lost her husband a few months ago,my husband and I helped her do everthing and then we started to hear the hurtful things she is saying behind our backs. I just wish she would own up to what she has said ,and admit that she was wrong. so I am going to e mail her this poem because I think it says how I feel down deep. Mary
