I can relate to this poem at this point and time in my life because my best friend and me of six yeats are no more. It's hard living without a best friend to cheer you up when eveything is wrong or when you just need some one to laugh with. I miss her so much and I will always remember that about her that she was always there.

You Were Always There

Whenever I needed someone to talk to
You were always there.
My eyes filled with tears, my heart filled with pain, and
You were always there.
There was no time when I had doubt
to come to you because
You were always there.
I could see in your eyes you wanted to help, and that you really cared.

Whenever I was down and blue
You were always there.
No matter my problems, are what was wrong
You were always there.
Whenever I felt like nothing matters
You were always there.

Now your gone, and I don't know what to do
I close my eyes and think of you, and how
You were always there.
It's hard to look at the pictures, and get memories of you
Can you hear me now
At night I pray, and I speak to you
I guess you were right when you told me no matter how far you were
You would always be there.
I know one day I'll see you again, but till then I have to say goodbye

Even though it hurts to hear your name, and speak of you
One thing I will always say is
You were always there.

This poem touched me greatly because it sums up my feelings about the death of my best friend, a year ago, when we were 13. It gives me great reassurence that someone else feels the same way.

It was almost 10 years to the day that my best friend died in my arms, the 10 years prior to that he was the driver of a double fatlity car crash and one of which was my other best friend. I am only 28 years old and have been blessed enough to have 2 best friends. Two only friends. After Linds died I clung to Brennan like a life line and found it very difficult to make any form of friendships with other people. I lost him this past Novemeber 10 years after the car accident. He died in my arms . as did Lindsey by the side of the road. I too can relate to this man's loss. If at all possible please forward this comment to the author of his poem. Sincerely, Danielle

there was a time where my best friend was always there for me, but he drifted away and hangs with chavs smoking and will end up drinking and getting a low standard of life, i hope he realises how much i care, and will come running back. and this poem can make me cry every time. and Zac, i sympothise for you, i know how this feels, thankyou for this poem. i know that crying makes no difference, for some reason when he walks past me i cant cry, but i cry myself to sleep about my loss and his loss. hoping that he will come while im in bed, and hug me and be my friend again.
Jess
I love this peom. I read it and Tears begin to wel in my eyes. I lost my best friend just over 2 years ago, i loved her like my sister and everyone says that i shold be over it by now, but. . . i would give the world to just spend one more day with her, just to be able to have someone to be there for you, no matter wat. Someone to be your shoulder i guess. I miss her so much. this poem but just put all my feelings into words. Thankyou so much

I think this is rele good i lost a bestfriend in a car wreck last year and it's very hard bc once you lose that one bestfriend that you can talk to about anything you want have another one and not a day goes by that i don't think of her! And i have been wanting to call her bc i have been sooo depressed and it hits me she's not here to talk to and i get rele angry and she was a rele good christian she was 16 years old!

emily
This is the most touching poem i have ever read. August 7, 2006, i lost a best friend. and after reading this, it just enlightened everything. and it makes me realize so much. I have to give props to whoever wrote this poem, you are a great person and you know how to go deep into thoughts. it's easy to read between these lines. and i think to everyone who has lost someone like i have, this just makes things seem so much better. i read this poem outloud and it made me cry but. the crying was so much different this time. the tears weren't as sad. now i know that no matter where Nick is. he's always gonna be there for me. thank you.
