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.

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.
Tasha

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.

wow. this really got to me. i almost cried because it makes me think of someone who made me think and feel all those things at one time. i really miss her now, but i'm glad for what i got to see and experience with her. I can't believe that anyone could possibly put into words what u have. Excellent poem!
Becky
this poem is perfect. i sent it to a friend who i was really close to, who has ended our friendship for no reason and didn't really tell me. i hoped that by her reading this, it would help her realize how much i miss her.
Lisa
So many people can relate to this poem. including me. The only thing I'm scared of is what happens if that friendship ends because she doesnt think of you as her best friend?. Great poem.
Jess
Lindsey, I know how you feel. I am really close to my best friend we are like sister's. We have had our ups and downs and our "Big fight" this year but I think it just brought us closer together as friends. Today was my last day of school I am a sophmore(supposed to be a junior but I dropped out my freshmen year)and this is my last year going to school because I am leaving again to get my G. E. D because I don't have enough credits to Graduate. And it is really hard saying good-bye to a best friend/sister. I already miss her a lot. My 2nd Freshmen year we started writing letters to each other everyday and I saved everyone of them and yesterday was the last letter we wrote to each other. And I know she is with me where ever i go but I still miss her a lot more then I thought I would. Your poem was great. I loved it. Thanks!
chia

This poem touched me because i can directly relate it to my best friend. She has helped me in so many ways i wonder how i lived without her before i met her. She has made me feel things i never thought i ever could, i never knew friendship could be this wonderful. Carla you are a friend for life.

Angie
It's the most beutiful poem I've read in a long time now, and I read a lot of poems. I also write some myself, so I know what I'm talking about. Very touching and beautiful.
stephani
i understand this poem completely. my friend jessica was closer to me than my sister was/is. i used to live like 25 minutes away from, until i had to move.now i live 3 hours away, and i can't visit her. the days seem so long when i can't just call her up and say "hey what's up?" it's really hard being without her, because i used to go to her for advice and stuff, and now i can't. but, i guess it's for a reason.maybe a blessing in disguise or whatever. i just loved your poem though, and i wanted to tell you that you're not the only person who misses or has missed her best friend
Ryan
