About the Poem

This poem tells about a very hard time in my life. I had gotten into a fight with a good guy friend, and his best friend helped me get through some of it. Then we, too, got into an argument. I didn't realize how much they both had meant to me until it was too late. One of them did realize what he had done to me and we are now good friends once again. The other and I barely talk. I'm letting the good one, who realized what he had done, know how much I really do care for him.

How Much I Care

You may not know how much I care for you,
Yet we are the best of friends.
We haven't known each other very long,
Mainly only in band.

When I got into a fight
With your best friend,
You listened to my problems
And to all that I said.

You did not understand why I fell in love with him,
Or why we were no longer friends;
Yet you went through it all,
Good and bad.

Then we got into a fight
And it nearly broke my heart.
I cried all night,
And could not believe that we did part.

You fell in love with one of my friends,
Just like I fell in love with him;
And when she did not love you back,
you finally realized what I had meant.

You said you realized what you had done;
With him not speaking to me,
Just like her not speaking to you,
We are on the same level, me and you.

He is still stubborn
And she bull-headed.
They don't know that forgiveness and understanding
Is the best anyone can give.

Now that we talk again
We've learned so much about each other,
That we would rather die
Than be without each other.

Now you know how much I care
And how much you mean to me.
I hope we never fight again,
Or for at least a long time, anyway.

This poem gives tought, care, and truth. I think it's one of the best poems I've ever read. I myself write poems about these types of things, but this is a very very wonderful poem. Most people, when they are going through a hard time, they don't do anything to get the things that are bothering them out. So if this poem was to be graded from 1-100%, I would definetly give it a 100%.
the poem touches the spot on me and a girl that i liked for quit a while

This poem describes my best friend Billy and I. We have been best friends through thick and thin and even dated each other's friends, only ending in heart break. Good luck in the future girl!
i think that this poems very good it reminds me of me and someone that i know and he was going through the same thing as me only we both knew what the other was going through its a great poem
i related to me and a few of my friends, i think it has been layed out well! x
this is exactly how i feel right now if you change it so the friend is a girl, and so everything else goes with it right.
This poem means alot to me as this exact thing happened to me and my best friend.. and now we R great best friends again.
It was a great poem
I sent this poem to my friends, to tell them how much they mean to me! I 'll be graduating soon, and i just wanted to let them know that I will alway's be there!
I think this is what happens all the time between best friends that are of the opposite sex. I think this is a very good poem.
