About the Poem

About how you can fall in love so unexpectedly with your best friend. How hard it is to deal with seeing the guy you love with all your heart and would trust with your life with the girl he loves so much. Seeing him be hurt at the same time you discover you are truly in love with him.

My Best Friend

The summer we met how could I have known
I saw you that first time standing alone
I was new to the crowd and a little bit scared
I needed a friend who really cared
I never thought it would be you who'd come when I was down
I always felt if my life flooded you'd just let me drown

I don't know how it happened,
you were suddenly my best friend
I sat and listened to you cry
Your broken heart I tried to mend

You told me about the girl you loved
I told you be patient to look up above
I said to trust God to really pray
You said that you had, so I prayed everyday

I asked God to guide you and help you to see
I told you you could always depend on me
You got what you wanted but she doesn't treat you right
You both argue and she always starts a fight

One night we were talking about something she'd done
I had known I liked you but then it hit me all in one
Suddenly I knew I loved you more than life itself
and I broke down and cried all by myself

When I finally told you you didn't seem surprised
I stood in front of you drying my eyes
I love you more than words can say
I think about you everyday

You are my best friend and I hate to see you cry
I try to hide my feelings believe me(name) I try
I know I'll never measure up to what you see in her,
she's the luckiest girl I've ever known
But just know you're never on your own
I love you, my best friend

Whitney
I voted for this because it has a certain flow with it. I love poems that rhyme because it gets me to understand the poet and their feelings. This poem I can relate to on one account and I've been the narrator and the person that its being written to.
ash

Stephanie
This is the best poem that I have ever read. I can't believe how much that describes the same exact situation that I am experiencing right now. Everything that you wrote down has happened to me, the same way. Meeting him in the summer, having him like another girl but helping him through it and giving him advice anyways even though you had feelings for him. I swear this poem was written about me! It made me cry just to read that poem and think of everything. You have super amazing talents and should keep writing. Awesome job and keep up the outstanding job. AMAZING!

Out of all the poems that i have read, i loved this poem the best. I know how it feels to be this person because i was in a same situation. It brought back many memories. Hope there are more poems like these. I also have some of my poems that i will submit to this page in the future.
Erin
I know exactly how you feel. I just told my friend not too long ago how I felt about him and now his exgirlfriend wants him back. she treated him like dirt! It hurts to see that he wants her back too, but whatever makes him happy will make me happy, even though, I am really crying inside. Keep your hopes up, maybe some day reality will hit him like it hit you and pray that SOMEDAY you can be together. For now be you, and all you can be, and remember there are others out there. Maybe you'll meet someone who could possess your heart, not even as well as he could. Good luck. I'll keep you in my thoughts and in my prayers. Keep your dreams, hopes, and wishes alive.
Brandon

This is a great poem. A while ago my best friend was haveing troubbles with her boyfriend and I was helping her mend her heart. Then I realized that I was falling in love with her. when I told her she just said "I dont know what to say," Now she is getting back togeather with her boyfriend even though he treats her bad sometimes. And now I am broken Hearted once again.
