This poem is a question that is often asked when you fall in love with a friend. Will they still be there for you?

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

Can We Still Be Friends?
I was cold and hurting
lost out in the night
wandering and searching
for heaven's light

I saw the night sky clearing
when you spread your rainbow wings
But little did I know
what joy you would bring

From that moment on
a friendship did start
you kissed away my tears
and sheltered my heart

I bless the day God
sent him from above
But then I grew fearful
for I had fallen in love

I told you this feeling
and what did you say?
You said you liked our friendship
and that's how it would stay

I cried for a friendship I thought I lost
But then felt your warm, gentle hand
You then whispered in my ear
that by my side you'll forever stand

  • Leila
    I loved this poem it reminded me of my life and also from when I fell in love. But not only that, the way your poem ended was true for me and some guy but later after 2 months he realized that he had made a mistake and went back with me! so everything turn out well and now I think that he's going to propose to me even though we're only 16! So anyway i would vote your poem: 15/10 so thats like 150% out of 100%!

    i lile this poem, it reminds me of those persons whom i know. those people whom denied their feelings for each other coz they want to preserve their friendships and yet ruin others life becoz they interfere others life and become hindrance to others happiness. they must admit that friendships always ends in 4 letter words and that is "love" but if your bestfriend doesn't return the same love you feel for him you must let him to find his happiness.

  • Evelyn
    Wow ! Totally a poem written straight from the heart. This poem has a resolution in it to a question the author was seeking and also the person that she described in it was honest with her and didn't end their relationship because of the way she revealed her feelings to him. I have to admit he was very nice to do that beacause some other people in similar situations wouldn't have the guts to do it like he did! Keep up the good writing and good luck.

He is definately one in a million. I think this was an amazing poem, and your a great writer. keep it up. If you read this Jeremiah.

I wanted to cry so much because I know our friendship has came to an end. I only love him as a friend but no more than that. Keep writing your poems they are very, very good.
  • LadyLove
    This poem was very true to the heart. It describes what every persom goes through at least once in their life. I'm going through it myself. Well, actually I am in love with one of my friends, but I don't think he knows it and probably thinks of me as just a friend, but who know. But anyways, once again, wonderful and true to the heart. Keep writing!

    the poem is good cause it really struck me. but can i ask the author. ? is it really possible for you to be friends with the friend you loved but rejected you only for the sake of your friendship??? cause thats the question that is still conquering my mind. i really feel bad. cause im willing to sacrifice all just for her to love me. and that stupid friendship is the cause for her not to love me

  • Chris
    This poem is just wonderful. I have a friend, whom I carelessly have developed feelings for. I let her know about it, but she just said that she didn't want to risk our friendship, she couldn't jepardize any of her friendships. That weekend she went out with one of our good friends. I wish to send her this poem, I hope it may work, if not, I thank you for sharing this with me anyway.

  • shyam
    i love it, i love it, i love it. its so amazingly perfect.
  • Mahes
    It's simply beautiful. I was really surprised, I was just browsing to find a poem to send to my best friend, who I have fallen in love with, even though I knew what he has to offer me was only friendship. The poem consists of every characteristic I find in him, and sort of the words he speak. I think our relationship is a live example for this beautiful poem.
  • Sarah
    I really liked your Poem it was great. keep up the good work.
  • Umer
    Hmm. well its very emotional and painfull poem i ever have read. i miss u my best friend and my 1st love. its true friendship often ends at love but love at friendship never. just hope might be she again come to my life as a friend like she was. thinking on the past finding mistakes all are the way of life. anyways its 100% true all that has written in this poem. all credit goes to author,
  • Me
    that is just what i just went though. i liked this guy but he did not like me the way i liked him.
  • Tay
    I really love this poem it really touched my heart when I read it and it reminds me of something that has happened to me before I used to really like this kid and everyone told me that he liked me and then when my friend asked him if he liked me and he came up to me and said i only like you as a friend and it really hurt me when he said that to me but i realized that sometimes friendship is better then love and sometimes you can ruin a friendship if you try to turn it into love
  • Janie
    I went through this once before and then i just did it again. when i saw this poem it said everything that i felt and i'm glad that i found it cause it helped me exspress my feelings to him!

  • brand
    now thats a true friend. who will stay there and won't let anything get in the way.
  • Celi
    I read the poem and I thought its pretty tight because I guess a lot of people including me can relate to this poem. yes, at first both of you meet, then you become friends and unexpectingly you fall in love with your friend, and it does hurt but you should also think that if both of you love eachother so much as friends then both of you must have some time for eachother to talk it over and come to an agreement that best fits both of your happines, TRUST ME even though you don't know me because I whent through this with a really special guy, Omar, and to this day we're still cool with eachother I mean he has his girlfriend and I have my boyfriend. This is why I like your poem and took some time to wright this to evcourage people to not only read this but to think it through a little too.

    Hey darling! The poem- fascinating! I absolutely loved it. I have fallen for my best friend. He knows it becuz I cant keep anything from him. He's my world! He said just friends for now, but we fight a lot more then we used to. This poem was inspiring and my thoughts went straight to my love! Thanx bunches 4 writing this, I write poems but i cant share them becuz im too afraid people will laugh. I give you 110%! u deserve a standing ovation or something :)
  • jennifer
    i read your poem and i realized the same thing happened to me. I met this really nice guy and we went out for 4 months but the time came when he had to break up with me. I was heart broken thought i never could live again. He told me we would only just be friends. But deep down in my lonely heart i still truely loved him.

    I thought that the poem she wrote was very touching.I have gone through so much pain in love,and reading her poem really helps.She did a very good job,it must of been hard to explaine the way she felt. It had so much expression in it about love.

  • marie
    i like this poem because i kind of went threw this but instead he also filt the same way and things hapened that i can not take back and wich i could.
  • Vishal
    This poem is really very touchy and close to reality. Whenever we try to cross the line between friendship and love, either we succeed or come across the same type of feelings.
  • charlie
    this poem really gets the point accross through a woman's eyes,when they are fed that really cheesy line from a really gutless man "oh,i just wanna be friends" it's better by far if u just tell the truth!
  • Joker75
    Really nice poem, I was really touched by it since it is exactly the thing I'm going trough right now. I can totally relate to the comment of Slinky who states almost the same situation which I am in. In love with best (female) friend, told her about it, she doesn't feel the same about me, This poem at least gave me some strength to continue to TRY to stay with her solely as a friend, although this is very hard. But as some else's (very good) comment was: "sometimes true friendship is letting go of someone" or something like that.cheers!
  • summy

    I think that the poem was really good. It actually helps you realize that just because you are friends with someone doesnt mean that you cant date them.

  • Lone
    This poem touched me very deeply. I have experinced the feeling first hand as many do.I have fallen in love with my best friend.Even though we both know that we love each other more than friend it was never enough. Now she is gone, and I'm torn apart inside.This poem made most of the pain subside. I have given it to my friend(love) and to my suprise she wrote back to me and told me how she has felt for the time that we have know each other. Thank you very muck your poem has touched me more deeply than you'll ever know. Thank you. "Sometimes to trully show some one you love them, you have to let them go."

  • Slinky
    :-) I love your poem, 'Can We Still Be Friends?' Just the other week i went through the same experiance, I was(still am hopefully) friends with this girl 'Sarah' she then started going out with one of my best friends, and everything was going well, between me and her and my friend and her, 9 months past and they were still going out, yet for some reason Mark(my friend) broke up his relationship, Sarah was hurt, after a couple of months past me and sarah started getting closer in the fact that we trusted each other with secrets more.. after a couple of weeks, you could say that i had fallen in love. I tried to hide it, yet when ever i wasn't with her i wanted to be with her, and when ever i was with her i didn't wantt o be with her because I couldn't stop thinking about what i felt. I told Mark, he was fine with it, and said that he understood what i felt as he had a nine month relationship with her. Yet he said i should try and forget about her. (he never told me exactly why he broke up with her) to this day he still can't stand her alot. At this point the only thing on my mind was my current situation. One day she invited me to have a friendly sleep over at her house with a couple of people. So i went along, and met her and Adam, and we talked, yet as it got further into the night, Sarah starts to get personal with Adam(intimate cuddling etc.) At this point i'm starting to feel uncomfortable, because she invited me yet they blatently want to be alone, and also for my personal reason. two or three days later i started talking to her about her relationships, she said that she couldnt get into another relationship for a while, at this point i brought adam up into the subject, yet she said that there isn't anything going on it's just the kind of relationship they have. (i still dont understand it but its their choice, maybe it's a security thing ???) at this point i'm totally confused about everything, Adam, my feelings for her, what to do. I think to myself that maybe its best that i keep my distance for a while, yet that just makes me think about it even more(this is all happening on a holiday, but not abroad, no college and no job, so theres nothing to keep my mind off of it) I decide to tell her,,,,, She took it well, and said that it was just a phase (????) Iasked her if it would affect our friendship, and she said she would think no different of me, yet i still feel slightly distant, but that might just be me ... ---------- anyway thats why i thought your poem was good, í could really relate to it.. Keep writing poems.... Slinky :-)
