Maybe Not Forever

There are so many stories I still want to tell
There are so many I love you's left unsaid
There are many tears left uncried
There are many dreams left to fall apart

I miss our long talks
I miss the nights when all was alright
I love you like a sister, you were my angel,
Yet I wonder why you left me here to die

We were forever best friends-
When one fell to the ground
The other one was there to help her back up.
We healed our broken hearts
With a hug and a gentle smile.
We stayed up every night looking at the stars,
Giggling like little girls and having midnight talks.

You said you had to go-
I wished it wasn't so.
You said we'd always write.
You said it would be like old times.
I looked in your eyes as you looked into mine,
With smiles like everything was fine.

Yet we both knew well that this was our last good-bye.
We knew that we would never again
Have those long talks and play like little girls again.
We knew all the pain we'd cause ourselves.
I also knew that my angel was being taken away,
Yet we promised no matter what we'd remain forever best friends

I lost a male best-friend, but everything mentioned in the poem pertaining to two females had me visualizing my best-friend and I doing the same thing. This poem really touched me because today is my best-friend's birthday (12/30/06). He passed in on May 19, 2000. Yes, its been 6 years and I have a child by him, so I continue to see him daily!

Jessica
I really, really loved this poem. It made me tear up. I once had a friend who was my best, and she moved away because she had to. It took almost 6 months to hear from her again, but still, it's not the same. I hope one day that I will once again meet up with her.
kayla

raja
this poems make me cryyyyyyyyyyyyyy. and me remember wat i lost
Audrey
I loved the poem because I know what it means to lose a friend. However, mine didn't go away but died three months ago at just nineteen years old. She died suddenly in accident leaving me alone and hopeless. I surely can never see her again. However, much of the things written in this poem are applicable to my situation
Angie
This poem made me cry. I couldn't help but think of all the times that we had my best friend and I. Thank you for letting me rethink all the good times my best friend and I had. That is a great poem.

I feel like that towards my big sister. she is my best friend. we lost our mother in May of 2005 and have been without our other brothers and sister. she is all i have left and now she in leaving me as well. and i feel like i am lossing her forever. i know she is not the type to call or write this is how i know she will be gone for good. i am left all alone.
monique
i really relate to your poem. i truelly made me cry. my best friend left me too. but it was because someone said that i was trying to do thing with her man. it was so not true. i loved her. and still do. but she didn't believe me. some friendship that turned out to be.

Lauren
This poem made me cry and it made me scared my bestfirend is soon moving (summer of 2006)and i don't want things to end like that but it is an awesome poem. hands down!
jessica
This poem touched my heart in the deepest way. It made me cry because I had a friend that was that close to me who i drifted away from. We always said that we would always be best friends n never feel uncomfortable talking to eachother. But after a year it seemed like just that happened. My friend had some very personal n heartbreaking problems that i helped get her through and she helped me get through all of mine. I miss her because i felt more comfortable talking with her than my own mom. I am now trying to gain that level of friendship back with her but i doubt that will ever happen.
cindy

Jessica
This poem hit me really hard. It reminded me of a dramatic instance with my friend. We used to be inseperable, but then things fell apart so quickly. and i feel like this poem talks to me. explains things i feel that I couldn't express otherwise
Kevin
This poem touched me for the simple fact that its so simalier to my own experience with a friend. This was a great poem in my opinion.
samantha
This poem was very touching obviously the two were very close i can relate to this poem because my best friend is living very far away i know its not the same circumstances but we told each other we would always write but we are slowly losing touch thanks
Liz
I love this poem because after 7th grade, my friends and I went to different schools and lost touch. They were my very best friends. My best year was 7th grade. When I read this poem it made me want to email my 7th grade friends and ask if they wanted to get together sometime.
