8 Heartwarming Best Friends Forever Poems

1. “My Best Friend” by Marc-Alexandre Gagnon

“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

2. “Friends for Life” by Angelica N. Brissett

“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

Don’t worry

Let go of your fears

Hand in hand

Love is sent,

We’ll be friends

Till the end!”

  • Angelica N. Brissett

3. “For a Best Friend” by Tinynisha A. Bush

“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

In life,

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

4. “Friendships” by Travis D. Phillips

“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

5. “You” by Margery Wang

“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

6. “Being a Friend” by Trenda N. Sparks

“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

7. “A Friend” by Lucy Larcom

“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

8. “Fountain of Friendship” by Hall L. Calhoun

“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
