About the Poem

This does not even come close to describing how I feel about my best friend, Courtney, but it's a start. We only met 9 months ago and already she has taught me so much about myself and how important it is to give love and respect to others as well as yourself. I hope I have been as good of a friend to her that she has been to me. We are apart for the summer and I miss her so much and I can't wait to be with her again

Until You, Without You

Always feeling alone, until you
I didn't love myself, until you
I didn't care about life, until you
I never held a friend's hand, until you
I never told a friend that I loved her, until you
No one had ever held me for no reason, until you
No one had ever truly known me, until you

Lying in the darkness, without you
I don't know who I am, without you
I don't know what to do with myself, without you
How did I ever get by, without you
How did I ever find comfort, without you
Would I have ever seen my true self, without you
Would I have ever known true friendship, without you

My best friend had to move thousands of miles from me and I havent seen her in a year. once I read this poem i could not stop crying because it made me think about her. I just have to say that I will always remember this and to keep holding on to your friends. you never know what could change in the course of a single minute.

OMG. I met this guy who is an awesome friend of mine. I was sick for a couple years and never really got to see alot of what the world is now. When i met him he showed me everything. He helped me catch up with my life. Now that he is busy with his life i feel i am with out him. Thank you so much for this poem
nikki
my parents sent me across the country because thye thought by friend was a bad influence on me. and this poem sums up every feeling that i have toward my friend. the best peom is the kind that does that. that makes you feel like there's someone out there you feels like you do, even if the senarios are different. this is one of the best poems i have ever read. and i thank the author for feeling th esame way as i do. if not, i would have felt completely alone.

Mallory
When I read this poem, I thought it was exactly how I think about my best friend. I just don't know if it's the same way she feels about me. We have been best friends for two years and I still don't know if she feels the same way. I don't know how to tell her. But this poem is one of the best poems I've ever read.

Andrea
This poem touched me very deeply. I just finished my first year of college and during that year, I met the greatest friends I could ever ask for. This poem fits perfectly with the relationship I have with my roommate. She became more than just a friend. She is the only one that truly knows me. I won't be returning to the same school next year and it hurts me greatly to not be able to be with her and all of my other friends. I really appreciate this poem because it says exactly what I want to say to them.
