I wrote this for my friend I met in 6th grade. As soon as I met her, I realized that she was the person I wanted to grow up with. The person I wanted to share my dorm with, the person I wanted to share all my secrets with, the person I wanted to remember forever. She was everything.

She was honest, nice, funny, cheerful, and best of all, sweet. In 7th grade we started talking a little more, and then it turned into going and doing things together. But, then at the end of 7th grade, as our friendship was getting better and better, my aunt decided to put me in a different school the following year.

Well, I think Rachel and I would have become best friends if I'd stayed at the school I was at. But I guess I'll never know!

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems - Teen Poems

I'll always remember her,
in good times and in bad.
I'll always remember,
the good friend that I had.

Next year we'll be at different schools.
We'll have new teachers, new friends,
and al new rules.

I'll always remember,
the good times that we had.
And with her in my heart,
I'll never feel bad!

Every time I saw her,
She made me feel better.
I liked her more then anything,
the day that I met her.

I wish we could've been best friends.
That way I'd know she'd remember me,
till the very end!

As our school year comes to an end,
I'll always remember her,
as my "wanna be" best friend.

    Hi! This is really nice, but me and my best friend (also called Rachel!) have not been at the same school since we were ten, we are nearly 17 now. Being at different schools we are better friends than we have ever been. We have other friends but she is my absolute best. Try to keep in touch with Rachel, it sounds like you have a lot in common so don't throw that away. Well done.
