About the Poem

Sometimes we come across people in our lives who we simply can't live without. I wrote this poem about my best friend in the whole wide world. She gave me hope when I was hopeless, and she was always there for me. It didn't matter to me what others thought of her, because she was my friend and that's all that mattered.

I daily thank God for giving me these people who are my angels on earth and who I can know I will always call my friends. Thank you Emily for being who you are, and loving me in the process!

My Angel And Friend

I never thought that I would find
a friend so great and a friend so kind
I look up to you in every way
'cause I learn something from you every day.

Without you I don't know where I'd be
but you're still here, friends with me
you deserve so much more than I can give
but without you I wouldn't live.

You've given me more than money can buy
and for you I'd give my all and I would die
This feeling I feel gets stronger every day
hoping not to screw it up, I constantly pray.

I know we have our problems every now and then
but once it's fixed our friendship is better times ten
and I want you to know that I truly do care
even in fights when I say things that aren't fair.

You're an angel from God up above
and I'm thankful for your understanding love
because when you're around everything seems right
and for you, until the end, I will fight.

It doesn't matter what you do or say
because you'll be my friend anyway
I know the real you that's down deep inside
and in you, I'll always confide.

Thanks for being the friend you are
you're my best friend, an angel by far
everything in you is an inspiration to do great
and you'll be loved by all cause that's your fate!

So never stop being the real and wonderful you
cause God shines through in all that you do
and whenever it seems like I'm never there
remember this: I love you and I'll always care!

Great poem. It is a nice way to share your feelings with your friend and also a good way to thank her
Annette
Awwww. dagonit I can't quit crying. that poem hit home big time! I have a friend I feel the same way about. and we've yet to have our differences but we're so much alike I don't think we ever will. but if for some reason we do. it will be rekindled quickly. She just went for a lung transplant and has been gone for 2 weeks. 1 email since shes gotten ahold of a laptop at the hospital. awww I miss my best friend. We've yet to meet in person but through phone calls and the net. we're like sisters that have never met. I love my friend dearly and I'd not know what to do if something happened to her. I'm the youngest of 22 children and I've not spoken to any of my sisters or brothers since 86 and shes like a sister I've never had. God Bless You for posting this poem you've wrote. somany have not seen this but I know through my emails. many more will!
