About the Poem

This poem I wrote to my best friend of four years that I will never forget. I think it is very important for every one to have a true best friend, and I hope that everyone is as lucky as me and finds one. And once you have one, never let go of that friendship.

True Best Friends

Like a needle in a haystack,
true friends are hard to find.
That's why I'm so thankful that I can call you mine.
Whenever I need a shoulder you're there to catch my tears.
You've kept my many secrets,
Throughout the past four years.
You've been there through my afflictions,
You've witnessed my defeats.
I'll remember all the good times,
And pray the bad ones don't repeat.
With you my heart is honest,
but there's one thing I never told you.
Thank you for everything you've done
There's no one else like you.
No one that could ever be a
true "best" friend like you!

This is a truly inspiring poem I LOVE it! It reminds me of my best friend and I when we were through good and bad times. you are a great poet Crystal! :)
I love this poem b-cuz I have a friend who is always around when I need her the most. Yeah we had our bad times but we came through and yes I do pray that the bad times don't repeat. When I need a shoulder, a hand, and someone to talk to she is always there. I thank her and appreciate her for always being there when I needed her the most. Good friends are so hard to find but a friend like her is really worth the search.

My name is actually Clara but I use Jody as my email. The poem touched my heart. I have a friend that is 19 years older than me but it does not change our friendship. Just like the poem said I can count on him when I need him. I have known him for around a year. His name is Michael and he is a true friend to me the poem reminded me of him and me that is why I like the poem.
The poem is really good because it remind of how much i Missed My Best Friend.
This is the best!
