Friendship Poems

These friendship poems remind us that friends are special people, people we think of with affection and love. There is a closeness and an understanding that we have with them. True friends are ones that are with us in the good times and the challenging times of life. We can depend on them and they can always count on us for the same. We sometimes refer to them as a buddy, a pal, a sister/brother but we always know they are there for us. Henry David Thoreau once said, "The language of friendship is not words but meanings."

You'd Always Be There

By , 2011


You were the friend, I could always count on.
Without looking hard, you'd always be there.

Through struggles and fights, some from you and of mine.
No matter the issue, you'd always be there.

I don't think I thanked you, or appreciated your pursue.
Even if I didn't want you, you'd always be there.

So now that I look back, and see what I missed,
I hope you know I'm glad, you'd always be there.




God Make Me Worthy

Poet Unknown


It is my joy in life to find
At every turn of the road,
The strong arm of a comrade kind,
To help me with my load.

And since I have no gold to give
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is while I live
"God make me worthy of my friends!"




God Sends

Poet: Rosalie Carter


I think that God will never send,
A gift so precious as a friend,
A friend who always understands,
And fills each need as it demands,
Whose loyalty will stand the test,
When skies are bright or overcast,
Who sees the faults that merit blame,
But keeps on loving just the same,
Who does far more than creeds could do,
To make us good, to make us true,
Earth's gifts a sweet contentment lend,
But only God can give a friend.



Seldom Put In Words

Poet: Unknown


We all too seldom put in words
Our thoughts from day to day
About how much we value friends
Who brighten up life's way.

So this is just to let you know
What's now and always true:
All the best that friendship means
Is centered right in you.



The Love of a Friend

Poet: Unknown


Like music heard on still waters,
Like pines when the wind passeth by,
Like pearls in the deep of the ocean,
Like stars which enamel the sky,
Like June and the odor or roses,
Like dew and the freshness of morn,
Like sunshine which kisses the clover,
Like tassels of silk on the corn,
Like notes of thrush in the woodland,
Like brooks where violets grown,
Like rainbows that arch the blue heaven,
Like clouds when the sun dippeth low,
Like dreams of Arcadian pleasure
Like colors which gracefully blend,
Like everything breathing of pureness,
Like these is the love of a friend.
