“Why do my words aggravate my best friend?
A friend in need never willing to say-
Nor to tell me the truth-
That her person deserves
Such a love that I give
To my friend left to dry
By the movements of time
Thru the windows of our lost memories:
When I sat with my friend
And she kissed my eyes.
Again I could see, and I did say that she was
Graceful and so kind to hold,
A woman for my life to yield
Such happiness that I now own.
But why have I been locked out?
Why were my good words ignored?
If I could read your thoughts, my friend,
I would search for the love
Which I know you hold for me.
And from within, I would leave you with
The love I’ve been left without.
It hurts to be forgotten.
Gothic mist . . .
Never in this life could I
Reach you with entirety
For I must first be halfway there.
And then again, another half
Betwixt’ the first shall come to rise;
I stand as life unfolds itself,
I seek as though I’ve found the way;
I have, and yet I sit to see
The beauty of my melody.
I could not live a life adrift
The devil winds your fathers left;
I am a man of mine own thought:
A realm of gold I gave myself.
Deliver for as we to do…”
- Marc-Alexandre Gagnon
“We are friends
I got your back
You got mine,
I’ll help you out
To see you hurt
To see you cry
Makes me weep
And wanna die
And 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!”
- Angelica N. Brissett
“Through tears and fights,
Through smiles, I knew everything
Would be all right.
Through love and hate,
Through betrayal and debate,
For you, I would always have faith.
Being your sister as well as your
Best friend, I knew
This friendship wouldn’t end.
By your side, I would always stand,
And you’ll stand by mine too
Because that’s what best friends do.
So no matter what happens with us
Through all of the wrongs
And all of the rights,
I’m here for you to be a best friend; that’s true,
‘Cause I love you, and that’s what
Best friends do.”
- Tinynisha A. Bush
“Friends will come,
and friends will go.
The seasons change,
and it will show.
I will age,
and so will you.
But our friendship stays
Strong and true.”
- Travis D. Phillips
“I still remember the first day we met
We were too shy to say much at all
It’s funny to think back to that time
Because now we’re having a ball!
They say that true friendship is rare
An adage that I believe to be true
Genuine friendship is something that I cherish
I am so lucky to have met you.
Our bond is extremely special
It is unique in its own way
We have something irreplaceable
I love you more and more each day.
We’ve been through so much together
In so little time we’ve shared
I will never forget all the moments
that you’ve shown me how much you cared.
Friends are forever
Especially the bond that you and I possess
I love your fun-filled personality
Somehow you never fail to impress.
The world could use more people like you
it would certainly be a better place
I love everything about you
You are someone I could never replace.
You are always there for me
When my spirits need a little lift
I cannot thank you enough for that
You are truly an extraordinary gift.
You are everything to me and more
I could never express that enough
Life is such a treacherous journey, and
Without you, it would be even more tough.
Our story will continue to grow
With each passing day
Because I trust that with you by my side
Everything will always be Okay.
You are so dear to me
You know I will love you until the end
I will always be there for you, and
You will always (and forever) be my best friend.”
- Margery Wang
“We have something that holds us together,
Something that made us both better,
Something called being a friend.
It makes the fun never end,
And it helps me to know that when
I am down and blue,
Because you’re my friend
I can count on you.
We run through life without a care.
Would anyone try to part us?
They wouldn’t dare
And when the time comes for me to go,
I really want for you to know
That even though my life has come to an end
I will never stop being your friend.”
- Trenda N. Sparks
“What is the best a friend can be
To any soul, to you or me?
Not only shelter, comfort, rest —
Inmost refreshment unexpressed;
Not only a beloved guide
To thread life’s labyrinth at our side,
Or with love’s torch lead on before;
Though these be much, there yet is more.
The best friend is an atmosphere
Warm with all inspirations dear,
Wherein we breathe the large, free breath
Of life that hath no taint of death.
Our friend is an unconscious part
Of every true beat of our heart;
A strength, a growth, whence we derive
God’s health that keeps the world alive.”
- Lucy Larcom
“Just a word of kindly greeting;
Just a thought of other’s care;
Just a word of love repeating;
How it lifts the load that’s there!
Just to know another’s thinking;
Just to feel another’s there;
Just to hope another’s drinking;
At the fountain of friendship fair.
This it is that sets us feeling;
This it is that cheers the soul;
This it is that comes revealing,
What is friendship’s real goal?
Let me then a kind word speak;
Let me cheer another’s heart;
Let me joy for others seek
As in life, I take my part.”
- Hall L. Calhoun
