Beautiful Poetry in English about Being Friendly
Best of Friend
The best of friends,
Can change a frown,
Into a smile,
When you feel down.
The best of friends,
Your little trials,
And lend a hand.
The best of friends,
Will always share,
Your secret dreams,
Because they care.
The best of friends,
Worth more than gold,
Give all the love,
A heart can hold.
by Marian Jones
If you have a special friend,
You have the greatest treasure,
For the devotion that she shows
Will give you so much pleasure.
When troubles come your way
She’s there to help you through;
She never fails or falters
In all she’s asked to do.
When you need encouragement
She’s there to cheer you on;
Her faith in you is constant
When other friends have gone.
Of all the precious jewels
The world could ever hold,
To have a friend like you
Is a beauty to behold.
Your Kind of Friendship
It takes more than caring
To be a real friend;
The nature of friendship;
Requires a blend
Of warmest compassion
And love deep and true
To reach and to comfort
The way that you do.
Because I can see
That your kind of friendship
Is priceless to me.
My Dear Friend
by Brandon Chase Sims
Dear friend I can’t explain to you
How much you mean to me
If it weren’t for you I can’t imagine
Where I’d even be
You’ve made me laugh and smile
More than I can bear
You’ve helped me through the hardest times
When I was in despair
You kept me up when I was down
And I was feeling blue
You helped me turn my life around
And become somebody new
Thank you friend for everything
I’m glad you really cared
Thanks for never leaving me
Thanks for being there
Great Examples of Short Friendship Poems
A Friend That’s Always There
My Friend you’re like a flower
as beautiful as a rose ..
Your petals are always open
you’re a friend that always knows.
You’re a friend, my companion
When you come for tea
You listen to my problems
And sort them out for me
With pain and tears
I know you’ll be there throughout the years
I love the way that we can talk
there’s nothing we can’t share ..
I love how I can be myself
anytime you’ re there.
I love the way you always listen
you take the time to care ..
The comfort of a friend like you
and to know you’re always there.
From first ABC…
By Unknown Author
From first ABC
To one two three
from crazy bicycle rides
to flying kites
First crush woes
Scrapped knees to broken hearts
We’re together right from the start
My friend you’re a gift
Both of us, a perfect fit.
Awesome Poems about True Friendship
A Priceless Gift
by Helen Steiner Rice
Friendship is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold.
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It cannot see nor hear,
And in your times of touble,
It is powerless to cheer.
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand.
So when you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful that he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,
But the love of a real, true friend.
By Sr. William S. Tsoukalas,
The feeling of friendship from the start
Is that special feeling in your heart
A feeling from deep down inside
A feeling that no one should hide
A friend is there through good and bad
They make you happy when you’re sad
they brighten up your darkest day
Just by the simple thing’s they say
Now friendship can’t be bought or sold
It may get tarnished, and may get old
You can over come your greatest fear
Just look around and it is there
Now friendship’s one and only cost
Is to make sure that it’s never lost
My Best Friend
You’ve been there for me
through the good times and bad
I know I can count on you
to be there when I’m sad
Life without you
just wouldn’t be right
I wouldn’t be able to get through
each day and night
When I’ve had a bad day
I know that you’re only a call away
When life takes that crazy turn
You are always there to help me learn
We’ve had so many good times together
I know we’ll be best friends forever
No matter where we are
I know we’ll never be too far
You’re my idol, my sister, my friend
We’ll be together till the end
Even when we’re old and gray
You’ll be here still,
to help me get on my way
A True Friend
When the roses lose their fragrance,
and the world seems at an end,
When the day has lost its gladness,
what a blessing is a Friend.
One who takes you as she finds you,
caring not who is to blame,
One who knows all your shorcomings,
but who loves you just the same.
Heaven sends a gift each morn,
of a bright new day to spend,
What a joy it is to share it with,
God’s greatest gift…A Friend
The Best Lyric Poems on Friendship and Love
I Will Be Here
I cannot ease your aching heart,
Nor take your pain away;
But let me stay and take your hand
And walk with you today
I’ll listen when you need to talk,
I’ll wipe away your tears;
I’ll share your worries when they come,
I’ll help you face your fears
I’m here and I will stand by you,
On each hill you have to climb;
So take my hand, let’s face the world
And live just one day at a time
You’re not alone, for I’m still here,
I’ll go that extra mile;
And when your grief is easier,
I’ll help you learn to smile!
By Marcia M. Griffith
As I think of our friendship, I begin to see
Mere words can’t describe what you mean to me.
When this cold, hard world has me lonesome and blue
I look up to see my angel, my sweet angel, you.
You dry the tears that fall from my eyes.
You bring me sunshine to brighten my sky.
You rescue me when I’m scared and alone
And take my hand to lead me home.
No matter the miles that keep us apart
We’re always together in each other’s hearts
Sometimes we take for granted, I fear,
The ones who are so close and dear.
We get so caught up in life and things we must do
Sometimes we forget to stop and say I love you.
If ever you felt I forgot or didn’t care
Let me stop right now, my true feelings I’ll share.
You’re the sun in my sky, the bed where I lie.
You’re the home where I’m safe, the field where I play.
You’re everything I am, everything I do.
So what I am saying is I LOVE YOU!
Best Friends Poem
By Roy Croft
I love you not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself,
but for what you are making of me.
I love you because you have done more than any creed
could have done to make me good, and more than any
fate could have done to make me happy.
You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign.
You have done it by being yourself.
Perhaps that is what being a friend means, after all.
Friendship After Love
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
After the fierce midsummer all ablaze
Has burned itself to ashes, and expires
In the intensity of its own fires,
There come the mellow, mild, St.
Crowned with the calm of peace, but sad with haze.
So after Love has led us, till he tires
Of his own throes, and torments, and desires,
Comes large-eyed Friendship: with a restful gaze.
He beckons us to follow, and across
Cool verdant vales we wander free from care.
Is it a touch of frost lies in the air?
Why are we haunted with a sense of loss?
We do not wish the pain back, or the heat;
And yet, and yet, these days are incomplete.
Classic Poems about Friendship by Famous Poets
To me, fair friend, you never can be old (Sonnet 104)
By William Shakespeare
To me, fair friend, you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I ey’d,
Such seems your beauty still. Three winters cold,
Have from the forests shook three summers’ pride,
Three beauteous springs to yellow autumn turn’d,
In process of the seasons have I seen,
Three April perfumes in three hot Junes burn’d,
Since first I saw you fresh, which yet are green.
Ah! yet doth beauty like a dial-hand,
Steal from his figure, and no pace perceiv’d;
So your sweet hue, which methinks still doth stand,
Hath motion, and mine eye may be deceiv’d:
For fear of which, hear this thou age unbred:
Ere you were born was beauty’s summer dead.
A Time to Talk
By Robert Frost
When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, ‘What is it?’
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.
Love and Friendship
By Emily Bronte
Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree—
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?
The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?
Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He still may leave thy garland green.
The Heart of a Friend
by Henry W. Longfellow
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
Cute Poems about Friendship for Kids
A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way,
A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day,
A friend is like a flower
That’s worn close to the heart,
A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.
Let’s be friends
By Christine Corona
Would you like to be my friend?
That would be so fine!
We’ll run around in your backyard
And then we’ll play in mine.
We’ll walk to school together.
And share our lunches too.
Oh, what a lucky kid I am
To have a friend like you!
Nice Poems about Friendship with Stanza Rhyme
by Erik Gault
If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you.
And share with you it’s beauty
On the days you’re feeling blue.
If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own.
A place to find serenity
A place to be alone.
If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea.
But all these things I’m finding
are impossible for me
I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair
But let me be…what I know best,
a friend that’s always there.
Friends till The End
To the ends of time
I will love you my friend ..
A friendship like ours
has no definite end.
You raise my spirits with
ways I can’t find ..
Always lifting me up
and ever so kind.
I’m blessed and thank you
so lucky am I ..
My friend you are treasured
till the day that I die.
Faithfulness is the key to being a good friend,
Respect them from beginning to end.
Neglect is something never to do,
Depend on them they’ll see you through.
Secrets are things you should be able to share,
Helping them out and showing you care.
Inseparable is how we will be,
Preparing for life: just you and me.
Light of Friendship
by Jack D. Marturano
I’ve seen the light
And it’s in you,
In everything you are
And in everything you do
It’s a perfect light
That shines for all to see
It radiates from you
And has pierced the heart of me
The light is from a friend.
It’s a light that keeps me warm.
It lets me know how loved I am,
And keeps me safe from harm
To you my friend I am thankful,
In each and every way.
For you lift my spirits up,
With every passing day
To know that you are there for me
It makes me feel alive
Because it is your friendship’s light
Upon which my love thrives
“Thank you” isn’t good enough
But they’re the only words I know
It is your light of friendship
That gives my world it’s glow
Inspirational Long Poems about Friendship
To My Best Friend
by Kiah K. Chonko
I was sitting here thinking
of the words I want to say,
but they just wouldn’t come out right
so I found a different way
I got a piece of paper
and I wrote this poem for you,
but there’s no way to thank you
for everything you do
For always being nice to me
and staying by my side,
for helping fix my problems
and never leaving me behind
For accepting my thoughts and feelings,
though you do not understand,
for never giving up on me
and being my best friend
For making me laugh
and letting me cry
and saying you’d miss me
if I were to die
Everything you mean to me
you could never know
In all the ways you’ve changed my life
I could never show
The way you take care of me,
you’re my shining star
and though it’s so incredible
that’s just the way you are
Before I get too mushy
it’s time for me to go,
but before I leave this ink-filled page
there’s one thing you should know
As long as we are living,
no matter when or where,
if you ever need me
just call and I’ll be there
I’ll climb a thousand mountains
and swim a thousand seas
anything to be there
’cause you’ve been there for me
A Lasting Friendship
by David Harris
It is funny just how time slips away.
It only seems like yesterday
when the two of us met,
long, long ago in 1976.
It was in September of that year
a friend persuaded me
to go along to a writing class
to help boost up the numbers
and my moral.
With just four pupils
and five when I came along,
so a small intimate group
all with the desire to write,
but Betty became
the most famous of us all
with over thirteen
historical romantic bestsellers.
She really has made her name.
I am proud to say
I was there when she began.
I remember when
she had her first short story published
it was a treat to us all.
If Betty could do it
then there was some hope for us all.
She even started teaching
and I was a guest speaker
at one of her classes,
and as the years passed on by,
we met up with one another
but what remained
even to this day
was a lasting friendship.
there is nothing more to say.
A Friend’s Greeting
by Edgar A Guest
I’d like to be the sort of friend that
you have been to me;
I’d like to be the help that
you’ve been always glad to be;
I’d like to mean as much to you
each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine,
to me along the way.
I’d like to do the big things and
the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies
and leave them only blue;
I’d like to say the kindly things that
I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul
the way that mine you’ve stirred.
I’d like to give you back the joy
that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need
I hope will never be;
I’d like to make you feel as rich as I,
who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to
I’m wishing at this time that I
could but repay
A portion of the gladness that
you’ve strewn along my way;
And could I have one wish this year,
this only would it be:
I’d like to be the sort of friend
that you have been to me.
A Golden Chain
by Helen Steiner Rice
Friendship is a Golden Chain,
The links are friends so dear,
And like a rare and precious jewel
It’s treasured more each year…
It’s clasped together firmly
With a love that’s deep and true,
And it’s rich with happy memories
and fond recollections, too…
Time can’t destroy its beauty
For, as long as memory lives,
Years can’t erase the pleasure
That the joy of friendship gives…
For friendship is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold,
But to have an understanding friend
Is worth far more than gold…
And the Golden Chain of Friendship
Is a strong and blessed tie
Binding kindred hearts together
As the years go passing by.
Amazing Poems to Best Friend
Let’s Not Wait
by Ron Atchison
We will meet again my friend,
A hundred years from today
Far away from where we lived
And where we used to play.
We will know each other’s eyes
And wonder where we met
Your laugh will sound familiar
Your heart, I won’t forget.
We will meet, I’m sure of this,
But let’s not wait till then…
Let’s take a walk beneath the stars
And share this world again.
Through Thick and Thin
By Annie Hall
I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive,
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 a life, and how things come to be.
Just thought you should know,
HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME.
My Dearest Friend
by Marc-Alexandre Gagnon
For those whom pray for us when times are harsh.
To these we doth confide our dearest love;
To stand alone to know that we’ve a friend,
A soul whom lives for us, and better still,
A being whom we trust with all our heart
Whom leaves our space and plays a life alone:
This is the greatest gift for one to have.
And I am fond to breathe my air within
The solemn grasp of those whom wish my glare
To see the eyes of one tremendous child
With which their songs are heard and ever sung;
I love to hear the voice of these whom speak
And leave me with a sense of harmony
Far better than the ode I call my own.
My dearest friend, you’ve been here all along.
Do stay awhile and sift thru life with us.
Best friends help each other shine…
Best friends help each other shine
And listen to each other whine
Best friends help each other heal
And share all that they feel
Best friends have each other’s back
To keep each other’s lives on track
Best friends, are a pair in a million
In my life, you are the chosen on
