This poem I wrote for my best friend when she was sick. It really explains how I feel about her and what she means to me.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems - Teen Poems about Friendship

A Friend's Love
No one really knows
What kind of bond we share
And even if I told them
They probably wouldn't care

You are very dear to me
I hope you know it's true
And now that you are sick
Tell me what that I should do?

While you've been gone
A part of me has been lost
It's like I've taken our friendship for granted
And now I'm paying the cost

I never knew how much you meant to me
Until you went away
The thought of you being really sick
Haunted me every day

I spent a few days at school alone
And my weekend was such a bore
A lot of my time was spent in my room
I think my mom's ready to break down the door

And now I make this vow to you
To keep until the end
I'll help you through the pain and tears
Until our rivers bend

So if you ever need someone
You know just who to call
I'll be here by the phone
To catch you if you fall

  • Ashley
    I think this poem is so good! It touched me because my friends know they come to me for everything. If I don't have what they need i'll try to help them. I am forever in their dept. When they cry I try to ease their pain. I would rather see them happy before me cause if their not happy i'm not either. I feel everything they feel we have a very strong bond and I love that. If I didn't have them by my side I would go down hill. They are my everything! My best friends!

    OMG! That is soo sweet! i know how you felt when you wrote this me and my friend we are really close and she has a lot going on in her life at the moment but i few moths ago she was in hospital for about two months she had a blood clot or something in her brain. When she told me she was going into hospital all she said to me was dont worrie i'll be fine and please dont come and see me i dont want you to see me hurt in the hospital, i was soo upset about it all but i reaspcted her wish for me not to see her and now that shes better we are even closer because we both realised how close we had come to losing each other. Its a really good poem and i think that your friend is lucky to have some one like you that is so careing to be able to write it!
  • Rancher
    When I read this poem, it reminded me of the friendship between my friend, (who I knew since I was 4) and I. When one of us were sick or absent from school, we would always be lonely, just like what the poem says. I think this is the best poem to represent the friendship between my best friend and I. People would get jealous because of how close we are. Our friendship was unexplainable. But now, after I've read this poem, I can show people what our friendship is really like. This poem has touched me a lot.
  • kelsie
    i liked this poem. it reminded me of me and my best friend and it really touched m,e. my best friend has been sick and she had to go away. i was very lonely . now she's back and she knows she can always call me.

    I had a friend that was just in the hospital. Made me cry when I went to go see her. She is out now. And I am soo happy. I love it!
  • Elizabeth
    A Friends Love is a very good poem. It teaches you about how you need to respect your friends before you lose them. If you read this carefully you will imagine losing one or YOUR friends. I give this poem a 9. 9. The reason is because it is really passionate.
  • keri

    Wow, that was fabulous. That's exactly how i felt this past winter. My best friend and I went to Florida together over Christmas, and when we got home, a few days later I hadn't heard from her and then her mom called me and said they had airlifted her to the hospital. she had pneumonia in her lungs and blood, and I almost lost her. I wish I would have found this poem earlier so I could have shared it with her!

    This is a very touching poem it remindes me of my best friend, who recently died of cancer. it brings back many of our memories together and some great times! I remember when school started back, and she wasn't there the 1st day. when i got home from school that day, i told my mom about it and she told me that my best friends tumer had grown back. i cried for days and a few months later she died i still pray to her because i know she has gone to a better place and cann't suffer any more. A LOT OF PEOPLE WILL LIKE AND APRESHIATE THIS PEOM! I KNOW I DID! THANX!
