40 Lovely Poems About Friendship
God Make Me Worthy by Anonymous
At every turn of the road,
The strong arm of a comrade kind,
To help me with my load.And since I have no gold to give
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is while I live
“God make me worthy of my friends!”
God Sends by Rosalie Carter
A gift so precious as a friend,
A friend who always understands,
And fills each need as it demands,
Whose loyalty will stand the test,
When skies are bright or overcast,
Who sees the faults that merit blame,
But keeps on loving just the same,
Who does far more than creeds could do,
To make us good, to make us true,
Earth’s gifts a sweet contentment lend,
But only God can give a friend.
My Everything Friend By Joanna Fuchs
When I am feeling glad;
You help to heal my injured heart
Whenever I am sad.You’re such a pleasure in my life;
I hope that you can see
How meaningful your friendship is;
You’re a total joy to me.
You’d Always Be There By Catherine Pulsifer
Without looking hard, you’d always be there.Through struggles and fights, some from you and of mine.
No matter the issue, you’d always be there.I don’t think I thanked you, or appreciated your pursue.
Even if I didn’t want you, you’d always be there.So now that I look back, and am thankful for you,
I hope you know I’m glad, you’d always be there.
One of a Kind By Joanna Fuchs
Right now, think of your positive qualities,
and things you can do better
than the average person can.Always remember:
Your are smarter,
and more significant
than you think you are.
Success By Edgar A. Guest
Nor seek undying fame.
I do not ask when life is past
That many know my name.I may not own the skill to rise
To glory’s topmost height,
Nor win a place among the wise,
But I can keep the right.And I can live my life on earth
Contented to the end,
If but a few shall know my worth
And proudly call me friend.
Truly A Friend By Karl and Joanna Fuchs
Someone on whom you’d depend,
Someone who’ll lift you when you’re down in the dumps,
That someone is truly a friend.That’s how I feel about you my dear friend;
You’re so special just as you are.
Just to know that you’re there provides comfort to spare;
A friendship like yours sets the bar.
Seldom Put In Words By Unknown Poet
Our thoughts from day to day
About how much we value friends
Who brighten up life’s way.So this is just to let you know
What’s now and always true:
All the best that friendship means
Is centered right in you.
Because You Are My Friend By Joanna Fuchs
my life is enriched in a myriad of ways.
Like a cool breeze on a sweltering day,
like a ray of sunshine parting glowering clouds,
you lift me up.
In good times, we soar,
like weightless balloons
over neon rainbows.
In bad times, you are soothing balm
for my pummeled soul.
I learn so much from you;
you help me see old things in new ways.
I wonder if you are aware
of the bright seeds you are sowing in me.
I’m a better person for knowing you,
so that everyone I interact with
is touched by your good effect on me.
You relax me, refresh me, renew me.
Your bounteous heart envelops me
in joy and love and peace.
May your life be filled
with dazzling blessings,
just as I am blessed
by being your friend.
The Love of a Friend By Anonymous
Like pines when the wind passeth by,
Like pearls in the deep of the ocean,
Like stars which enamel the sky,
Like June and the odor or roses,
Like dew and the freshness of morn,
Like sunshine which kisses the clover,
Like tassels of silk on the corn,
Like notes of thrush in the woodland,
Like brooks where violets grown,
Like rainbows that arch the blue heaven,
Like clouds when the sun dippeth low,
Like dreams of Arcadian pleasure
Like colors which gracefully blend,
Like everything breathing of pureness,
Like these is the love of a friend.
A Friend I Can Count On By Joanna Fuchs
As those gremlins often do,
And my spirit keeps on fallin’
Till I feel low down and blue…When I look around for comfort,
Someone quickly jumps to mind,
One who always will support me,
And whose words are always kind.Who will make my mood feel lighter,
Who’ll help beat my troubles back,
He/She makes the sun shine brighter
And gets my spirit back on track.Who helps the road seem straighter,
And helps me get around each bend,
Who makes each day seem greater,
And that someone is you, my friend.
My True Friend By Abimbola T. Alabi
And help me up if I should fall,
But you never complain at all,
My true friend.You confront me when I am wrong
But will never scold me for long,
Instead, you try to keep me strong,
My true friend.You know the funny things to say
To make me laugh my fears away.
Like the sun, you brighten my day,
My true friend.You see in me gifts I deny
And urge me to give things a try.
You spread for me my wings to fly,
My true friend.You always perceive what I need
And offer it before I plead.
Just like a book, my mind you read,
My true friend.
You value little things I do
But won’t brag of what you do too.
How can I ever repay you,
My true friend?
And greatest of all I have found
When times are tough and I’m down,
You are the one who sticks around,
My true friend.
Friendship By Unknown Poet
polished face, or winning wiles;
Friendship deals no lavish praises,
Friendship dons no surface smiles.Friendship follows Nature’s diction,
Shuns the blandishments of Art,
Boldly severs truth from fiction,
Speaks the language of the heart.Friendship favors no condition,
Scorns a narrow-minded creed,
Lovingly fulfills its mission,
Be it word or be it deed.
Friendship cheers the faint and weary,
Makes the timid spirit brave,
Warns the erring, lights the dreary,
Smooths the passage to the grave.Friendship – pure, unselfish friendship,
All through life’s allotted span,
Nurtures, strengthens, widens, lengthens,
Man’s relationship with man.
You Were There By Emily Robinson
you were there to brush them away.
When I was lost in confusion,
you were there to say that everything would be okay.
When I stood before you falling apart,
you were there to lend your heart.
When I felt like no one could understand,
you were there to take my hand.
When no one else was left to care,
you were there.
My Treasured Friend By Joanna Fuchs
Our friendship is a gift we share.
I can be myself around you,
Safe in your love and care.I miss you when you’re out of sight;
Our friendship bond was meant to be.
I think of you with great delight;
You’re almost part of me.Through fun and fears, play and tears,
We help each other heal and grow.
I prize our time–the days, the years,
More than you can know.Just harmony for me and you,
The two of us–a perfect blend.
I’ll cherish you my whole life through,
My dear and treasured friend.
I Will Be Here For You By Angie M Flores
I will be here to put a smile on your face.When you’re angry and frustrated,
I will be here to calm you down.When you’re hurt and in tears,
I will be here to wipe them away and mend the pain.When you’re lonely and have no one,
I will be here to comfort you.When you’re feeling unloved and unwanted,
I will be here to tell you how very important you are.
When you’re having a bad day and need to lash out,
I will be here to let off steam.
When there is something on your mind that you need to say,
I will be here to listen and understand.
When you’re lost in confusion,
I will be here to help you figure things out.
When you feel like you’re going crazy,
I will be here to bring you back to sanity.
When you are so overwhelmed and need to get away,
I will be here with open arms so we can run away together.
When you’re scared and frightened,
I will be here to protect you and make you feel safe.
When you are full of worries,
I will be here to worry with you.
I promise that I will always be here for my loved ones,
today, tomorrow and forever!
O, My Friend By Edgar Lee Masters
What fitting word can I say?
You, my chum,
My companion of infinite talks,
Through whom I saw myself at best;
You, the light of this western country.
You, a great richness.
Product and treasure of these States.
Bonds Of Friendship By Craig Burkholder
Your heart was pure and kind;
Your smile was sweet and innocent,
Your wit was well refined.The sparkle in your eyes was keen,
Your friendship fast and real;
Soft words were your virtue,
And humor your appeal.We grew as friends together,
We laughed and shared our dreams;
Along the way crush or two,
Went unrevealed, it seems.As years rolled on, our paths were split,
Our roads went separate ways;
We each pursued our interests,
That occupied our days.
We soon forgot our youthful bliss,
Of tender carefree years;
We didn’t talk or keep in touch,
Throughout life’s pain and tears.
Then my darkest hour came,
And tried me to my core;
To save my heart from ruin,
I closed and locked the door.
Then out of every nowhere,
With precise directed cue;
An old familiar smile,
Came slowly into view.
Although much time was gone,
And the die of fate long cast;
It was as if we hadn’t missed,
A second of the past.
You listened with attentive care,
And reassured my mind;
That loving hearts are still alive,
With purpose and design.
Deep inside I’ve locked way,
Emotions yet untold;
As time goes on, and bonds grow strong,
They will all unfold.
So thank you, friend, for taking time,
To demonstrate your love;
It’s yet another blessing that,
I’m undeserving of.
You Will Be Missed By Stephannie Beaudette
Was the hardest thing to do.
I never thought I would,
Especially not to you.You always listened
And knew what to say,
Knew when to give a hug
When I was having a bad day.No one will ever take your place.
I can always promise you this.
It’s hard to find someone like you,
So know you’ll always be missed.
What Is A Friend? By Joanna Fuchs
in the back of your mind,
providing feelings of comfort and security.
A friend is someone
who adds happy sparkle to your life,
joy, fun, a predictable creator of happiness.
A friend is a stormproof shelter
from life’s challenges, troubles, uncertainties,
an unassailable bond overcoming any challenge,
strengthening the connection in the process.
You are all this and more, my friend.
If I Could Tell You By Krystal
it brightens up my day.
There are so many thoughts on my mind,
so many words I want to say.I want to tell you how I feel,
but the words I cannot find.
They’re all mixed up with my thoughts
that are running through my mind.I’ve been keeping it locked up
because I know there’s not a chance.
You never look my way.
You don’t even take a glance.You don’t even know you’re doing this,
toying with my heart.
I wish I could just tell you,
but I don’t know where to start.
Should I tell you how much you mean to me
or how badly I want to be with you?
If I were to say these things
how would you react, what would you do?
Would you never talk to me again?
Would you never look my way?
That would just bring me back
to where I am today.
Then I’d start all over
and choose a different route
to make you understand
my feelings that want out.
I don’t know what to do
or even how to say.
Maybe I should lock it up
and keep myself away.
My heart would ache even more,
but maybe for the good.
I just really want to tell you
only if I could.
A Friend Is Like.. By Joanna Fuchs
Or a lovely, calm blue sea,
A refuge from life’s problems,
As only a friend can be.A friend is like a song,
Soothing to the brain,
Distracting us from trouble,
Neutralizing pain.A friend is like some ice cream
On a sweltering summer day,
Making life delicious,
In a friend’s own special way.A friend is like a blanket,
Bringing peace and rest,
A cocoon of warmth and pleasure;
When we are tired or stressed.
A friend is a bit of everything
That makes life good and sweet,
And you, my friend, are all that;
You make my life complete!
A Smile By Malak Meleka
A smile could go a long way,
So make sure to put one on
And keep it until the day is gone.
You don’t know what this deed
Could do for a friend in need.
It might save them from the pain
Of a sadness they cannot contain.
Don’t ask what a smile can do
Because I’m sure it once helped you.
Ode To Friendships By Kayla Rae Pich
They’re the few people who accept silence over conversation.
A relationship like this denies silly promises and persuasion.
You don’t feel the need to second guess thoughts or measure words.
Their love comes in wholes, not halves, not thirds.
They’re the ones that guide you through when fate takes a turn.
Fights, small and large, end in forgiveness, never a burn.
You forget about first impressions and the feelings they brought.
You’re grateful for who they are and you forgive ’em for what they’re not.
My Best Friend By Joanna Fuchs
someone with whom I can share
ideas, laughs, troubles, fun,
my innermost thoughts,
things I tell no one else,
someone who listens
and really cares.
That is why
my best friend is you.
Care And Happiness By Shishir
Made my life cheerful and bright,
Showering your affection over me
So that my face was full of glee.
Taking away my complete loneliness
And giving me back all the happiness
With a Midas touch of your care
To keep me away from despair.
I’ll never leave you midway,
And tales of our bond people will say.
Friendship Joy By Joanna Fuchs
From life’s frequent storm;
Like a comfortable blanket;
You keep me snug, safe and warm.You’re a light in the window
When everything’s dark;
You’re a trip to the circus,
A romp in the park.Like a bright, sunny summer,
You are joy without end;
And I’m so very privileged
To call you my friend.
The Ones Who Feel Like Home By Vic Lejon
during uncertain times
who stand with you
when no one else will
who hold you when you break
and pick up your pieces againthey are your people
You By Jess
you were therewhen I would cry till death
you were therewhen I would sit alone in the dark
you would be thereand now I promise that I will always be there for you
Your Special Friendship By Joanna Fuchs
Those times when I feel a lack,
I thank God for your special friendship,
Because I know you’ve got my back.When I wonder about life’s true meaning,
And whether it all makes sense,
With a word or a smile from you, friend,
I forget my silly laments.I guess what I’m trying to say, friend,
Is with all your support and your giving,
You brighten each minute I’m with you,
And make every day well worth living.
Till I Breathe My Last By Shishir
Happiness spreads throughout the atmosphere.
You look to me with grace and confidence,
And we talk about all positive things without any rants.
In your company, the good times move very fast.
I promise I’ll look after you till I breathe my last.
We Are Friends By Karl Fuchs
Whether I’m feeling happy or sad,
If I have a need, you’ll comprehend;
You’ll be there to share and be a friend.Other people may fill my day,
But never in such an important way;
We support each other ‘round all life’s bends,
It feels so good that we are friends.
Through Thick And Thin By Annie Hall
I could be in a car crash and still be alive.
The clouds could fall out of the sky.
The oceans could disappear and all turn dry.These things in life are all bad, I know,
but there’s far worse things, just thought you should know.Life would not be the same without someone like you.
You’re there when I need you to help me through.
Through the good times and through the bad,
Be them happy or be them sad.
I don’t have to be with you to know you’re there.
We don’t have to see each other to know that we care.
We could be apart for years upon end
and still remain the best of friends.
Life goes on, and people change,
And through it all, our friendship shall remain the same.
That’s such as life and how things come to be.
Just thought you should know how much you mean to me!
You Are My World By Chelsea
the conclusion to each day.
I envision you in all that I do
and everything I say.You’re the smile on my face,
the sparkle in my eye,
the warmth inside my heart,
the fullness in my life.The only hand that’s laced to mine,
the coat upon my back.
My friend and love, you have my heart;
I will never turn back.
You’re the dimple in my cheek,
the constant tingle in my soul,
the voice that makes me weak.
You’re the one who shields the cold.
You’re all I’ve wanted,
all that I need.
You’re all I dream of,
You mean so much to me.
Pure Delight By Joanna Fuchs
To have a friend like you.
You always care, you’re always there,
You say the right things, too!You make me smile when I am low
You’re just a pure delight.
We talk a lot about everything;
You make my life so bright!I hope that I am giving you
Some joy and happiness,
Because you mean so much to me,
More than I can express!
Friends For Life By Angelica N. Brissett
I’ve got your back,
And you have mine.
I’ll help you out
To see you hurt,
To see you cry,
Makes me weep
And wanna die.
If you agree
To never fight,
It wouldn’t matter
Who’s wrong or right.
If a broken heart
Needs a mend,
I’ll be right there
Till the end.
If your cheeks are wet
From drops of tears,
Let go of your fears.
Hand in hand
Love is sent.
We’ll be friends
Till the end!
Walk Away By Mili Jain
And the tears start to fall.
I ask myself a million times,
How did we lose it all?
For the first time I had no words
That to you I could say.
I cling to old memories
And I watch you walk away.
I just don’t want to let you go,
But inside I know I must.
My heart’s whimpering with pain,
But it’s my mind I trust.
There’s confusion around me,
There’s numbness in my heart,
But looking at you walk away
My world just fell apart.
If only I could handle it
And bear to just say,
I’d use my breath and say the words:
Don’t Walk Away!
My Giving Friend By Joanna Fuchs
Our joy and also our pain.
Without you as my friend,
I just might go insane!You know what I’m talking about;
You’ve been through big things, too.
Yet you cheer me when I’m happy,
You comfort me when I’m blue.Your giving does not go unnoticed;
I’d be lost without you, friend.
What we have together
No one else can comprehend.
It’s Really Up To You By Shelagh Bullman
One kiss a love affair,
One smile can bring you laughter,
One hug can show you care,
One wave of your hand can say hello,
One tear can make you cry,
One gentle touch can warm a heart,
One dream can make you fly,
One song can bring back memories,
One thought sees brighter days,
One wish can bring colourful rainbows,
One good deed can bring you praise,
One moon can light your darkness,
One star can guide your soul,
One step will start each journey,
One hope to make your goal,
One hand to hold in friendship,
One heart that’s kind and true,
One Love…One friend, is all you need,
It’s really up to you.
