About the Poem

This poem is dedicated to the one person I can always count on. She was one of the few things keeping me alive at one point. We've been through a whole lot in only two years, and our difference in age didn't make things any easier. She stuck by me, though, through the good and bad times, and when our families and our friends were so unaccepting. Nine years is nothing between friends. She's always been willing to be the target of painful frustration, and she knows just how to cheer me up. Nothing in the world could ever repay her for everything she brings to my life.

Only You

With you, it's all about
voiceless communication-
always knowing exactly what to say,
but never actually having to say it.

When no one seems to be listening,
you hear.
When I hurt but don't show it,
you know.
When I turn away to hide my tears,
you see.
When I feel like I can't get through to anyone,
you understand.

Your eyes glow just for me,
and I know you're proud.
You flash your magical, healing smile my way,
and I know everything will be all right.

You know everything there is to know about me.
You know what worries me,
what keeps me up at night,
and what shames me so badly
that I can't share it with anyone.
Most importantly, though,
none of those things bother you.

You've restored my faith in people
and proved that there is a thing
called true friendship.

A poem which really portrayed my friendship with my best friends. :)
Just two verses in and I was starting to cry. It describes the relationship I have with my best buddy 'spot-on'.
This poem really touches me by the words. I can not see how I can sit here and read it without crying. I just sent it to this boy I am chatting with. He seems like a real nice guy to go out with. He asked me do I like him I said yes so that is why I sent the poem to him. Please make up some more poems like these one and send it to my e-mail address.
Outstanding and full of lovely feelings .
to be very sincere,this poem really touched me. When I read it ,I saw the true likeness of my best friend Mercy. I had no second thoughts and I just sent it to her immediately! congrats for your good work and please give us more.
I love this poem because it relates to me and my best friend in so many ways. A coupld of years ago I was really down and my best friend just pulled me back up and she still does. She knows when there is something wrong even though I try my best to put on a happy face. She knows when I'm upset about something and I just won't admit it and best of all she's always there to put a smile on my face. She's like my sister. So I thought that this poem was a great tribute to best friends like her.
I like the poem cause it touches the heart with its simple words about what friendship really means. Thank you for writing such a nice poem.
