I really enjoyed your poems God Bless America
I had a very close friend make some very rash decisions and was almost taken away from me forever. This poem reminds me of the feeling I had when she told me face to face what she had done. It hurts but at the sametime helps my grieving. She ended up moving away and now I have no control or way to help her it seems. But when I read this poem it reminded me to just be a friend to her again and that is help enough.
I just recently lost a wonderful Friend He was one of the rare ones someone who you could truly call friend but he was more like a brother to me more. So many people simply do not undestand how turly rare True FriendShip is in this world if you have one consider your self Truly Blessed!
This is such a true poem. My best friends trusted me and i scred up 2 many times and she lost all trust in me. I feel bad and i hate myself for what i did but no matter what i will always love her.
this poem reminds me of my best friend who is in the army i miss him like crazy and thats why i can relate to this poem
i really love this poem because my best friend left me and i can really relate to it.
i just love this poem. its exactly how i feel inside. she always said"for you and I i rest of time very best of friends". i guess she was lying

I. P Carlos always be remembered it was a nice poem who ever wrote it it really touched me thanx!
friendships are never meant to last. they break up to make up. that how life goes. if it is a true friendship then it will be mended an they will be friends again if not then it was never a true friendship
i just lost a friend she chose som1 else over me. i cant help but say that it was the poem that told the most truth. this person truly understood wat it was like to lose a true friend. and how depressing it is to say good-bye. and how u cant tell anyone wat happen they may think your jealous when it really is that you just dont want to compete w/ som1 hoo wont care wat the score is that she will always say she won.
Today was the hardest day of my life. I ruined a great friendship between me and my best friend. After reading this poem I cried for hours, and then I went back to it, and it was like a reality check. It really hit me that I lost my greatest friend. I'll never get it back, but this poem made me appreciate her like I should've when I had the chance. I think it's the best poem I've ever read. Thanks for the help.
i really love your poem because that described what im going through
this poem is awesome. i loved it and it touched me so much. i know what the writer is talking about because i lost my best friend a year ago
the poem was touching and it sounds lke it should of been about my old friend jordan

I Love This Poem. I Feel I Can Relate To It Twice Now As This Is The Second Time Ive Been Stabbed In The Back By A So-Called Best Friend. I Was In Tears Reading This Poem Cause I Was Looking Back Over My Life.
I really do relate to this poem. It feels so real. I have had it on my ceiling so i can read it every night when i go to bed. It reminds me on how special my friend is to me and how much i want to keep her in my friendship circle.

i tjought that your poem was realy touching due to the fact of losins my friend acouple of year ago her name was leane and she was killed on her birthday
it made me think about how my best friend is always there for me
i love this poem
Your poem touched my heart. As I read it, it made me cry. I lost my best friend. It hurts when you ask for forgivness but they don't really forgive you. They don't accept you for who you are. So are they really your best friend? Your poem touched my heart because I can mend the friendship, but I have not been given the chance.
i think its very true what the poet is expressing. i feel the same way about my friend.
i love this poem! i tell my friends that this is how i feel and this poem has changed my life! thank you!

I really liked this poem. It reminded me of my friend that died 2 years ago on July 4th. It really lifted my heart when I read it cause it made me think of the times him and I had together and all of the stupid things that amused us. Thankyou for the making me have those memories.
Omg! This poem descibes me and me ex-best friend so well. I really do miss being friends and we're tryin to work it out. So hatever happened between you and ur friend you should try to work it out b/c you can't go w/ out her. Believe me i tried it. lol. Great job with the poem. you should be so proud of yourself . Its terrific
this is a very good poem, i keep reading it over and over because it reminds me of my best friend who moved to England last year and i saw this poem and it was totaly true. If i were to rate this i would give it 10/10 good job.
Wow! Thats really all you need to say to explain that poem. This poem was very good. :)
I love this poem because I am moving and I sometimes tell my friend's lies, even though I should not. I also like this poem in a way because it expresses feelings.
I love this poem, becouse my best friend Christien she died of Cancer (seven tumors) and now i know this is a true she was my best freind.
Today a good friend of mine sent me a letter saying that we shouldn't be best friends any more, and I can't explain how much that poem touched me. Thank you.

i like it it made me feel the same when i lost my best friend today at school she thinks im lying bout somethi but she just doesnt understand wut it is like to be me!
Thankyou you have made me realise the trueness and briliance of mates!
That is so true. Life's so unfair. The person you trusted most could be gone of some good reasons such as going out of town but. The worst reason is when YOU are the one who blew up your friendship. And later you knew that you were only tricked by others to insult your friend? And now it's all over?. That's the most cruel thing taht is now happening to me.

VERY GOOD POEM! it fits my situation perfectly. me and my best friend are going through some drama right now. but i still love her with all my heart and i hope it gets fixed. good job
that sounds like what happened to me and my best friend. it almost made me break out in tears.

OMG! this is sooo true. my best friend whom i've known since the second grade (for 5 years)moved away and this describes my feelings.

Marie Eugenie
its great. !It reminded me of my long "lost"bestfriend.
I absolutely loved your poem it made me cry. Me & my best guy friend/boyfiend broke up and stoped being friends a year ago & it still really hurts.
I really enjoyed reading your poem! It reminded me of my mother, i lost her last march and what you wrote in your poem made me think of how she was my best friend in every way and how i would take back anything to get my mom back. I am 14 years old so it is really hard on me but hearing your poem really made me think about everything! Really good job!
This is just what happend to me 2 years ago ,I still miss my friend alot,though I dont know why she did what she did! Your poem is very me !
10 months ago, my best friends of 13 years stopped talking because of what I now realize was all a misunderstanding, I walk by them everyday at school and it kills me to know that I can't talk to them anymore like old times. When I read your poem I could totally relate and I loved it.
I love this poem! I can totally relate! I've had the saem best friend for 4 years and all of a sudden she gets new friends and she told me she doesn't have time for me anymore! I told her everything! Things I didn't even tell my parents, and now she doesn't have time for me anymore! It hurts so bad! I see her everyday at school and it makes it worse because I have a class with her and she won't talk 2 me! So I can totally relate! At least i now kno im not alone!
Truly its touch my heart. ! Simple way to express anything is a poem. I lost my best friend because of my own faults. Shame! But I come a cross people like to be friends, but could not find the noble heart of my lost friend. Shame!
I just want you to know that you are not alone. My best friend Kristina was shot a month and three days ago by her step father. You would think that I knew something was wrong, being her friend and all but I did not know and that makes me really sad.
That poem made me cry! Me and my best friend aren't getting along anymore and it really kills me!
I really liked ur poem it reminded me of my lil cuz that moved to newyork
This poem is really good. I lost my best friend from cancer and she ment so much to me. I honeslty dont know what to really do cause of how many people I have lost in my life, but my friends are tryen to help me out so I can get through all of it. I'm glad that they really care about me.
**sweet, it is really good and brings back memories**
Very nice poem. My bestfriend committed suicide a couple years back and now, reading this poem, makes me think happy thoughts of her and how much I miss her. Good luck to you. Never lose faith in God. Xoxo
I like this poem 'cause it says just what I feel. I realy enjoyed reading it. Nice peom! Im 12 years old.
this poem reminds me about what happend to my friend they are still fighting but im sure they'll make up!Oh and keep up the good work

Ilove your poem, I have lost a best friend after 4 years, ( SHE MET BETTER AND PRETTIER FRIENDS) when i new we werent friends i cryed i sat in my room all day long.
your poem was great it reminds me of what happend to me and my best friend
:( That is so true! Straight from the bottom of the heart! It is exactly what I feel that was put into words! Keep up!
i luv your poem, it really described my situation too
Hey i liked yuor poem alot. It shows how much you cared but you couldnt stay around. I have been there before and it dose hurt,but what doesnt kill you only makes you stronger! remember that no matter what happens.
i thought i would live just to keep my best friend happy. now i have made her hate me. i only know what i feel. i dont know what to say/do.
This poem was sweet and simple, but truly touched me in my time of need :)
i loved ur poem. its like u were me. and went threw everything i went threw.
I love this poem it's like the situation im in it hurts so much to lose someone close to you. Keep it up Athena!
this poem was really good i had a friend for like 7 or 8 years and now we don't talk. she was the most important thing in life and now shes out of it!
I know what you mean because i lost my best friend and my cousin in the same week. And i did every thing with her so i am sorry it happened to you
My two very best friends in the world are not speaking to my and that hurts me very much bbut this poem says exac. what I feel.
I am currently in a situation where I think I don't really have her as my best friend.she has her other friends and she neglects me.sigh but anyway I have to say that this poem is touching with simple language but means a lot.
This poem really hits home for me. It says how I feel, and puts it into words that I could not have.
I loved this poem. It explained just how a person feels when they lose a really close friend. I cried when I read this cuz it's so sad.
I loved your poem I can so toatly relate I lost my best friend while he was woring at pikes electricity he had been shocked throughout his body shok and he fell out of the bucket but you probly dont want to listen to that so I'll just say think you for wrighting this now I know I have someone I can relate to about the way I feel!
i see another oudie voted on this poem. so im wondering who that is. but i just wanted to say that this poem didnt make me sad. mainly cause it was simple, sweet, and sincere. so it made me smile.
this poem meant a lot, the same thing happened to me and it nice to know that your aren't alone.
This is an awsome poem! I just transfered schools so this is kinda of good poem 4 me thanx~!*
I love this poem so much, because it reminds me of my cousin who just left us behind, we know she didn't want to, but she couldn't hold on. we miss her so much and we will always be together along the way to come.
I very much miss a best friend of mine and couldn't help but cry when I read this wonderful poem. I so strongly vote for this talented person to win for this amazing, touching & heartfelt poem.
I loved this poem. I lost a friendand that was how it went almost. I still care for her but you know. Nothing can last forever.
i like it. it reminds me of my best friend whom i love most that has gone.
I totally understand how you feel. i lost a friend who was more like a brother to me during New Year's this year. I called my friend up today back where i used to live and i found out another friend of mine passed away yesterday. I know exactly how you feel.
That was a very good poem!
this poem really touches me because i feel the same way about the best friend i have, or more appropriately had.i don't know what happened to our friendship,it's complicated,but i will always love her in a way that no one can replace.
this poem was the best because i have lost my best friend and everything you said was right. It also made me think that i really do miss her
this remindes me of my friendship with my best bud
it was really touching and i know how u feel
My best friend of 15 years is not speaking to me over something really silly. I miss her a lot and this said everyting I couldn't put into words. Thank you
i think that this poem is really good. you should write more poems similar to this particular one.
I like it because that is they way I felt the day I left and saw my best friend there waving good-bye to me. I really love her as a sister and how I hope I will see her again and we can have as much fun as we did in school.
This is the best poem I have ever read. Me and my best friend are having problems. And that poem made it so much clearer how much she means to me and what I have lost. Thank you!
Sweet, simple, to the point, and WONDERFUL! I loved it!
I really love this poem because it comes out right away with what needs to be said. I love your poems and I wish I could have the talent to right some but for now I will just discover others
I thought your poem was exellent it was very well done and very well written. I know what it feels like to lose a best friend its very hard to live with such a big change without that one friend you have had for so long never coming over again and things like that. Even if you do start your friendship over with that person it will never be the same. Your envy for that person or what you consider that person too be it won't be the same envy you had for them before.
I liked the poem 'coz it was so beautiful and sad, feelings from the broken heart. Losing a friend hurts and that's what's all about in the poem.
it reminds me of a friend that is now far way. i miss her. she was like my sister. i want her to come back i told her everything now i can't unless we keep in touch by writing letters back and forth.
That is such a good poem. It describes friendships that I've had in the past that I've let slip away so well.
A good poem is sweet and simple and too the point.
this has been the best poem ever
We've all had friends come & go in our lives, when I read this I cried.
i reeeealy like this poem because it has a good rhythm.
This poem reminds me about my best friend who I lost a year ago.
i think i really love this poem.. i sent it to all my old friends and now she knows what i feel. we aer noe friends.
This poem was really good. people like poems like this because it releaves all of there stress..
