About the Poem

He who can teach someone to see a million miles with their feet planted firmly on the ground, surely deserves the honor of being called a friend. And that is exactly what he did..

This is a beautiful poem! No one could have written a more perfect friendship poem and put all the right words in it to say. The author should be making millions by writing poems! Absolutely beautifully written!

My Jonathan Seagull

My dear friend....
You came into my life so unexpectedly..
Little did I know what was to lie ahead
For the longest time you were a click of a mouse, words on my screen
Hugs that warmed my days.. and secured my nights

Within the many hours of our private room,
You showed me strength, when I showed you my weaknesses.
You taught me the importance of believing in myself,
When I thought there was nothing to believe in
You taught me so much, in ways I never knew
You stood behind me when I began to fall.

Along side of me when I needed a friend
In front of me when I needed a guide
You showed me my ability to fly...
How to reach places I had only dreamed of
You saw me with your heart and not your eyes
But more importantly you gave me a piece of you
A gift worth far more than money could buy.

You gave me a floor to dance on..
A song in my heart that I finally understand the words to
And a peacefulness in my heart...where you will live forever..
I hope everyone finds a "YOU"

Your poem really touched me because i met someone online after me and my old bf borke up. We were just friends for a month and than he asked me out on July 1st and we have been going out since. Even though we still have a year before we can meet i am willing to stay in this relationship. Because he is the one that i want to spend my life with he is my everything. He is always there for me when i need him to just listen. He always encourages me to follow my dreams and always tells me never to give when thats all i want to do. He is also really understanding and knows that if i can't be online than it is for a good reason or if i need to leave early from of our chats. I love him with all my heart and he is my night in shining armor. I know that he is always honest and loyal to me and trust him with all my heart not to hurt me.

The title was the thing that caught my eye when i was browsing through this website. My friend's name is Jonathan. He lives all the way in Illinois, and I'm in Washington. This poem reflects my feelings about him perfectly :) He's my best friend, even though he lives all the way across the states. I would send this poem to him, if I had the courage to. But I'm just in my low teens. Hopefully, he'll see this comment one day. I hope he does. Your poem inspired me to write some of my own poems. :) Maybe, you'll see me here one day. Maybe
