About the Poem

I wrote this for my friend I met in 6th grade. As soon as I met her, I realized that she was the person I wanted to grow up with. The person I wanted to share my dorm with, the person I wanted to share all my secrets with, the person I wanted to remember forever. She was everything.

She was honest, nice, funny, cheerful, and best of all, sweet. In 7th grade we started talking a little more, and then it turned into going and doing things together. But, then at the end of 7th grade, as our friendship was getting better and better, my aunt decided to put me in a different school the following year.

Well, I think Rachel and I would have become best friends if I'd stayed at the school I was at. But I guess I'll never know!


I'll always remember her,
in good times and in bad.
I'll always remember,
the good friend that I had.

Next year we'll be at different schools.
We'll have new teachers, new friends,
and al new rules.

I'll always remember,
the good times that we had.
And with her in my heart,
I'll never feel bad!

Every time I saw her,
She made me feel better.
I liked her more then anything,
the day that I met her.

I wish we could've been best friends.
That way I'd know she'd remember me,
till the very end!

As our school year comes to an end,
I'll always remember her,
as my "wanna be" best friend.

I really liked this poem. i actually had a bestfriend named danielle, and she moved away and i really miss her. I like this one alot. its touching.
Hi! This is really nice, but me and my best friend (also called Rachel!) have not been at the same school since we were ten, we are nearly 17 now. Being at different schools we are better friends than we have ever been. We have other friends but she is my absolute best. Try to keep in touch with Rachel, it sounds like you have a lot in common so don't throw that away. Well done.

I think this poem relates to me alot 'cause i hang out with sarah,Megan, Danielle,etc. and i'm really not best friends with them but i would most definetly like to be but that will have to be up to them. i really like this poem! Sarah,Megan,Danielle if you ever read this i love all of you and i hopr one day we all can be best friends. love ya girls!
I like this poem mostly because my name is Rachel and because it was greatly written and reminds me of my best friend Carolina, only we've been best friends since we were in 2nd grade (4 yrs. ago).
WOW! this poem tuched my hart because my best friend is moving and i will not be able to evre see her agen. see she is moving to china with her new step-mother. i gest want everyone to know that you dont know what you have till you lose it. Kahla
I like the poem Rachel, because my name is Rachael, and all my friends love me. they say that they will never forget me, and everybody calls me there best friend. your poem is sooo true. thanks for writing these poems, they really inspire me!
i ABSOLUTLY LOVE this poem! i can relate to it SO much. i'm in 7th grade and i'm not popular. i made the school softball team and thats where it all started. Jamie, the best player on the team, is the most popular girl in school and i just met her this year in softball. anyway, i got her screen name from a friend and i was having a HORRIBLE winter break so i thought what the heck i'll IM her. and i did. we talked for hours and she helped me out SO much. she is the nicest person i ever met. but since she is so popular shes got a lot of other friends so i dont even see her at school and im moving at the end of the year and i love her SO much and she says she loves me too (i'm talking bout the friend type of love here for all of u ppl that r just weird like that) anyway i feel as though she is my best friend and im just a friend to her. so i can definatly see where the "ill always remember her as my 'wanna be' best friend" comes from, because she is my "wanna be best friend"
aww thats so touchin my best friend is leaving at the end of the year and we are soooo close and theres nothing then i want more to be friends but i dont knoe if she does
man i love this poem becaus i have a friend called rachel and were kinda like best friends but we wont be for longer because im leaving school and going to a diffrent school,and that poem sounds like my life now,it's kinda sad but i love it heaps. lol
I think a lot of people can relate to this poem, including myself. dats y i sent dis 2 my fren bridgete b4 i went away. since then, we bcame best frens. Thanks 4 such a wonderful poem. keep wrting!
This poem is truly brilliant. I'm twenty-one now and can't remember the last time I cried. This poem however brought a tear to my eye. I never really read poetry before today, but I have a feeling that i'll be reading a lot more from this very day. Thanks for sharing this delightful poetry with me. You truly are an inspiration to would be writers, like me.
this poem is very nice it is a bit like my life and so i can relate to it and understand how the person was feeling wen she wrote this poem.
I enjoyed the poem because it remined me of my friend and I. we just started jr,high we've been friends for five years now . I(ts hard going to different schools slowly we are sliping apart. I just hope she always remember me. thank you you are a very good poet!
I have a cousin named Rach and she was moving from my skool in Victoris (aust. ) to canberra (next state) so i lived far away from her and i sent this to her and her sister watched Rach while she read it and e-mailed me saying "she immediatly burst into tears" so thanks for the awesome poem!
i love this poem and i am in tears, because i had a friend named Rachel we were close but i wish we had a secound chance to be best friends because she died 2 years ago (im 14) and so i won't see her for a while but i wish i still had the chance thanx for writing this poem
This poem really made me think about my best friend Rachel who moved away, and how much she means to me
I love this poem, it kind of made me cry b/c I can relate to everything that this person is saying, and I really want to know who this person is, b/c I had a friend named Ashley whom I met in 7nth grade and we did do alot together, I mean alot, and she told me at the end of the year she had to move. and I haven't talked to her in sooo long. But I love the poem. I wish I knew who wrote this
I think this poem is wonderfull. My best friends name is Rachel and we have both recently left the same school. I hope i will keep in touch with her. Thank you for a great poem!
this poem really touched me because i had a best friend racheal who died from cancer not long ago and i really miss her! but why didnt u keep in contact with your friend racheal? if i was i would contact her and see what happens from their.
Even though I have never been through that, I really loved reading it. Nice work!
I went through this my friend Sam and I were great friends she moved apart and now we hardly ever see each other. I cn relate to this totally and this really does explain how I feel.
This is agreat poem. I went through the same thing.
I can really relate to this poem because it feels like my best friend sasha wrote this poem for me before she moved to Oahu.
I actually have a friend named rachel and shes my best friend and i printed the poem just to give it ti her.
This poem really hit me hard because a few years ago one of mi friends moved away then she was later killed in a car accident and I really miss her!
Good work! I had the same experience as the poem.
that was a great peoms but why couldnt she be your best friend???
I think the poem is very good i like it because the tittle is 'Rachel' and my name is Rachel , Also because i am in year 7th
I believe your poem was great. I also lost a friend and I know how it feels, This poem explains the hurt and memories we hope to keep. It was ace. Thanx for sharing it with me.
this is a wonderful poem, it touched me very deeply.
it is a very sweet poem because it just happened to me a few days ago except that she was leaving. the thing that's similar is that we met in grade 6 and she went just now except its not the end of the school year.
I love this poem...not only because the title of it is my name, but it describes a friendship that me and this other girl had. And just like in the poem the girl had to move away and I felt like I was by myself...I know that we would have became best friends.
this is a really good poem im so sorry that you are spliting up and not going to see her at school best of luck
i like this poem, it is wonderful. especially since i can relate to it. its sad how we lose friends and never find out what we could've had and where it could've went.. but thats life.. great poem ;o)
I really like this poem because it remnds me of my friend rachel!
that was sweet i also had a girl that i met in 7th grade but we did become bestfriends and well i'm glad that i did. i'm sorry you didn't get the same opportunity
I loved this poem so much. My friend Ashley is going to a new school and we where VERY close. Im thinking of saying this poem to the eighth grade graduating class of 2000 and dedicating to a great friend. Of course i would need Gap's permission. Please consider! Thank You!
i liked this poem very much
i think this poem is the best one i have ever heard before. it totally explains how freindships are broken apart, but yet they will always last in someones heart and i really enjoyed it, seeing that my name is rachel and just three years ago i went through the exact same thing with my best friend. she ended up moving back and we will never apart again!
