This is really a wonderful poem. This poem shows the feelings of a person who is unable to ask what she always wants to.
MAUREEN
THIS POEM REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART. I TOO HAD A WONDERFUL FRIEND WHO I FEEL BETRAYED ME BY TALKING BEHIND MY BACK TO MY COUSIN. SHE TRIED MANY TIMES TO CALL ME BUT I DID NOT TAKE THE CALLS. SHE NO LONGER CALLS BUT I THINK OF HER NOW AND THEN AND HEAR FROM RELATIVES HOW SHE IS DOING. I MISS HER ALOT. BUT LIKE THEY SAY YOU CAN NEVER GO BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS.

oh my gosh. this peom so reminds me of my best friend. she still is my best friend,but she always busy with dancing and doesnt understand that i need to spend some time with her. i hate how i wait for her everysay to come home so that we can hangout together. but she ends up coming home late so its way to late. i kinda wanna tell her i dont wanna be best friends anymore. its just to hard fer me to deal with. i cant do it anymore. i've told her once before but it just hasnt gotten to her yet. i love your poem Judy and keep on writing please!
Lena
This poem made me think about my relationship with my best friend. As of right now I feel like I dont know her anymore, but this poem also gave me understanding on how other people have the same feelings. Dont get me wrong I still love her and forever will. It makes me not feel alone anymore. AND IT FEELS GOOOD!

Ashley
I love this poem. I think my friend Roger and I are drifting apart. When I send him emails, his sister, also my friend, tells me that he calls me names. I hate it because I really care about him and I just wish he would too. This poem tells exactly how I feel.
grace
so good.
K
This poem is so touching and it's significant of the way I feel now. My friend and I had a strong friendship and when it ended, I felt as though I lost a brother that was very close to me. I hope he can forgive me and be friends again. Someday

Lindsay
I vote for this poem because it really touched me, my family is going through a situation like this and this poem explains it all.
Josie
Such a beautiful poem
joel
there is a way that words count when everything else seems lost or devoid of meaning. these past days my life has been devoid of laughter after i lost a very beautiful friendship, i know it will take time for the pain to end, maybe it wont. this poem will help me tell them, that i did treasure everything and always will.
Marisa
Sometimes a poem speaks your feelings for you, this one does that for me.
mayra
I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed it
ally
i thought this poem was amazing. i am feelin the same way right about now. and i now realize that im not the only one which is kinda comforting.
Hilda
Your poem is beautiful and it really hit the spot! Thank you
Ashley
Wow, this poem is touching and it feels like you reached inside me and pulled all my feelings out and put them into this poem. It relates just much to an experience I just went through. Sometimes when friendships end although you dont necessarily want them back you just want to let the other person know you still care, that is what this poem does. Amazing job!
dimple
im touched by the innocense and the truth. sometimes it feels as if it has happened with us also,lost in this whole world,gone are those days of loud talks & left with some unspoken thoughts. when our friend has just gone away from our life. at that time when we had never expected. i really like this poem
erin
It really touched me because this poem is so true to me and my junior high best friend!
Maegan
This poem really touched me because 3 years ago i lost my best friend of 12 years. she left me to go be "popular". i was never popular but i always thought she'd be by my side. i was wrong. i cry a lot just thinking about her. she is my neighbor, i see her everyday but we dont speak. she judges me like we've never met, now i realize the enemies we have become. we have put walls up between eachother and hopefully ill talk to her soon and the walls will come down.
Angel
This touched me as it is so very true in life. Some friendships fade away and we sit there wondering why and do hope that we will not be a forgotten blip in the memories of someone we once held so close and dear to our hearts.
Marie Eugenie
i can relate to the poem. i was touched. i think i'll cry. it's a very good poem.
Beth
I just wanted to say that I really really like this poem. Reading it brought me to tears, since I can connect so well with it. It is the closest thing to fitting the situation with one of my friends at the moment that I have found yet. It really describes how I feel. Thanks to Judy for a great poem!
micky
i liked it
Khristiana
Wow, I feel for you. I just lost my bestfriend, Andrew. I cry every night wondering how he could have ever left me. He promised that he wouldn't because I meant so much to him, And that I was the last person he would hurt. But now he has a girlfriend, and everything changed, he just can't see that I'm the only girl that could love him so.
amber
this was a great poem, and it made me get very sad because my best friend jordan and me have grown apart because she replaced me for another girl. i loved this poem.
Heather
Judy,i love yr poetry. thankyou. Last yr i had a wonderful unforgettable relationship with a married man. i too am a maried woman. we had the most wonderful happy summer of 2003. we are both 50. !. sadly our spouses found out. we are now trying to make the 30 yr marriages work. yet we met one day in town and we both know that what we shared was so wonderful and there is still that love between us. so you see yr poem 'Quiet Emotions'. was just for me. as is 'The Question of Belonging'. plus others,and i thank you. !. Keep up the good work Judy. !
Sarah
This poem understands me.
Peter
A truly wonderful poem from the heart. Your words mirrors my own feelings of a love lost. There is comfort in knowing that there are others out there that know what it feels like when a love bond is lost. Your words also give strength for myself and those who are struggling through the emotions. thank you.

All I can say is 'WOW'. This poem has touched me in ways that it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

This poem made me realize how valuable friendships truly are. I have experienced a similar situation in my life. Although my friend and I will never be as close as we used to be, he will always hold a special place in my heart. I will continue to treasure th good times we had and hope he will do the same.

Obed
Dear Judy, I've read this beautiful poem many times over and over and I must say that it has touched me deeply everytime. Your wrighting it's pure beauty. Thank you"
jen
i think that this poem has a great sentimental value for me so i suppose i am biased. It reminds me of what i am going through in my life at the moment and makes me happy about it anyway. I think that this poem is the sweetest. Its depressing, in a nice, cute sort of way. God this poem!
Carly
Thank you so much for this poem. I recently recieved a poem from my ex-best friend and I found out that we really need out friendship back. I am giving this poem to her tomorrow to show my agreement in return. Thank you so much.

rani

Megan
this poem means alot to me i just lost my best frend he was someone i could talk to about anything but i lied and so did he so how we can ever trust eachother again i do not know but i hope one day we can find our way back to eachother becaus it is hard to imagine my life with out him i love him i hope he NEVER forgets me
Eliza
This poem is very nice. it makes me cry. There is a reason why. I had a friend called Annanefeli. She used to be my bestfriend and now I have lost her. We are just normal friend. I cried a lot that believing she is gone forever. she is not my best friend anymore. I don't have anybody to tell how I feel about loosing all my best friends. Eveytime I read a poem about loosing their best friend I cried. Anyway I love this poem and I hope the author is in good condition.
Amber
this poem is incredible. i haven't been able to find the words to express my feelings for my best friend and our situation right now. we've been best friends since the 7th grade, and now he's becoming distant, and wants different things from friendships than I do. this has been killing me inside, and now with college coming up, this is so perfect. right on the money. i'm crying right now. keep writing, this is beautiful.
Nicle
This poem is so awesome. lately Ive been have alot of trouble with friends n such n this poem did it. it made me realize that no matter whether I let go of the friendship or not. I will never stop karin. THANKS!

jules
Hey good poem! It reminded me of my old best friend, we were very colse until lies and secrets ripped us apart. keep writing these they're good
Mel
I can put put myself in this situation. It's hard to tell your own dear friend you Love him,this makes it hard and painful at the same time to you. But at the time you might think what if the only thing I can get from him "Friendship" breaks if I tell him I love him.
Andie
I love the poem! Keep up!
Jim
This is one of my favorite poems. I recently had to say good bye to someone I loved very much for reasons I won't go into. This poem brought closure in a very gentle way. I admire your point of view very much.
Nicole
I loved this poem..but it made my cry. I read it over and over listening to Graduation by Vitamin C. My best friend and I are about to go to high school and she is moving. She never can visit though because her mom hates me.
ben
this poem is very good and sad alltogether. This poet is smart
Aravind
This is one poem I really like .It is so true and so close to my heart that it says everything I want to say and in a much better way.It made me cry thinking of all the friends I have who donot keep in touch. I am planning to send this to all those friends.
Katie
This is exactally how i feel about my friends and i, they were both mad at me and i sent it to them, hopefully.. they accept my apology
Katie
I totally understand what this poem means. Even though I talked to this friend all the time she just died not to long ago and now I feel like there is a place in my heart that no one could fill.The last time I talked to her was two months before she died and I didn't even get to say good bye and I love her.
Becca
This is a great poem.I got in a huge fight with my old best friend a few months ago, and we have barely spoken since.every now and then in the halls we smile but never speak to each other..lately I've realized I do miss being around her.I miss alot of things about her..this is a great poem and it really touched me.
kristin
i sent that to someone that it really fit with me and him so i want to thank you i was trying to find a way to tell him and finally did!

Raymond
I liked this very much, it hit the right spot for my ex. we have a child together and be together for 5 year and alot of stuff happened with us and know its over but still want to be a freind to her. I'm glad that I say this and I did send this to her to tell her how I felt. thank you for this poem.
Crystal
This poem is the most perfect poem. I have just drifted from a friend and it describes the hurt to a T. I think you have a gift for poetry and hope to see more poems from you. This is the best poem about friendship I have ever read.
Lisa
This poem totally touches on how I am feeling about someone in my life right now. Times have been tough, and I think I will give her this poem...it puts my feelings into words, and makes sense of my feelings. Thank you.
Liz
very touching, yet simple, i love it
Alecia
WOW..This captures exactly what I am going through with my best friend. He will be leaving soon, and well he is basically distancing himself.anyway..I sent it to him basically as a final Good-Bye and to let him know I will always be someone who cares
Joseph
I have read poems in the past, but this one grabs the heart and speaks the truth.
Nikki
This poem was very beautiful, it made me cry. I know what it is like to lose a best friend. I knew my best friend since I was 5, i'm 16 now and it's been 3 years since i've spoken to her, and we go to the same school, but it a pain that i still suffer, but i suffer in silence, and even though i have a great new best friend, that quiet pain is still there and this poem really brought it out.
rachel
your poem made me realize that perhaps i had hurted the girl who's friendship w/me is broken. i think it's time for me to make the 1st move and admit my mistake. i really miss her.
Andrea
This poem is exactly like the type of friendship my best friend and I have. I'm sending it to him and hopefully he will like it as much as I do.
RAINEE
I WANT TO THANK THIS AUTHOR ON CATCHING MY EXACT FEELINGS. I MISS MY BEST FRIEND, AND KEEP ON TRYING TO MAKE AMENDS BUT IT SEEMS THAT WE HAVE DRIFTED TO FAR APART. HE WILL NOT MAKE TIME FOR US. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR HELPING ME EXPRESS MYSELF.
lot
i love your poem. it completely describes my friendship with my best friend that has fading already just because of our misunderstanding. i've realized that it really hurts to loose a freind who's been so dear to you. and as of now what only remains is but of memories to cherish.
Kim
I truly can relate to this poem. It really touched me. There was this good friend I had and when he went off to college I was left feeling lonely. I haven't talked to him for a while and this poem really reminded me of him. Thank you-I really needed that!
TINA

Eremon
there are pomems that we all can relate to and make us smile . . . .this is on of those
Debbie
I really related to this one! (In more ways than one!) It is a beautiful poem.keep writting!
Ashley
When I read this poem I couldn't believe how true it was about me and this guy. Him and I used to be friends but now I guess we are not. Anyways, without me going into anyhting, the poem says it all.
shandra
I was very glad to finally find a poem to express exactly how I was feeling. My best friend and I constantly end up fighting so we stopped the drama and stopped our friendship all together but I realized that we still have a friendship. A silent one.
Debbie
Very inspirational and true to the touch
elissa
This was a poem that touched me. This was also a poem that saved a dead friendship. I had this friend that made me a new person when I was with her. One day it all stopped. The poem described every emotion I ever felt about her. When I sent it to her she cried ...for me ...just once. It made a difference in the way she looked at me. Thank you.
Shelly
This is a wonderful poem that not only reminds me of special friends that I no longer see but also of my ex-husband and the feelings I have for him. Even though we didn't make it as a couple he is still a very good friend.
Keila
I thought this poem was very intreding.I liked this poem so much that I wrote it to a friend/person that I was not sure if we were still friends because of the problems we are haveing.I just hope she writes back and we can be best friends again.Don't worry Judy I didn't say i wrote it.
Debbie
hey.. this poem really touched me, and i'm not sure if i should send this to someone i know. She said our problem was over, however there is still a gap and i really hope we could be friends again.
Ashley
I love this poem! It describes my relationship with one of my friends perfectly. If I could write poems, I would definitely write something like this!
M.
Your poem touched my heart. It reminded me of a faded friendship that was special to me. The feelings expressed were very beautiful and sincere.
