A collection of short best friend poems to share with your best buddy. You will find that these best friend poems express feelings of love and appreciation to someone who is one of a kind, a true lifetime pal.
A best friend is someone who is always there for you, doesn't matter the
time of day or what the situation is you know you can depend on them.
Best friends always go above and beyond what a friend would do.
There is an old saying that we think best describes this special person: "a best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have."
I will not think that I have failed
Or lived my life in vain,
If to my credit I shall find
One friend to to be my gain
And tho' the road in life is rough
With mountains hard to climb;
I find there's joy along the way.
And the journey, it is fine.
It there's a friend beside me;
To cheer me with his song,
To smile his understanding,
When everything goes wrong;
It gives me strength and courage,
The mountains to ascend,
And I find that life's worth living,
As long as there's a friend.
Then be not hasty when I'm gone.
To say, I lived in vain
The ghost of many failures
Like monuments remain
But when life's sun is sinking,
And I reach my journey's end;
Then count my earthly riches
In the number of my friends.
Friends we have been for a long time
We have been thru many climbs
Together we have had laughter and joy
Remember the days when important things were toys.
We have seen our share of hardship too
But stronger and wiser we are after each issue.
If I had to define what a best friend is
I would point to you in happiness and bliss
You're an example of what a best friend should be
Sincere, honest and a bit crazy!
Our friendship continues to grow
And best friends we will be, forever I know
We just shake hands at meeting
With many that come nigh,
We nod the head in greeting
To many that go by.
But we welcome through the gateway
Our few old friends and true
Then hearts leap up and straightway
There's open house for you,
Wide-open house for you.
The surface will be sparkling,
Let but a sunbeam shine,
But in the deep lies darkling
The true life of the wine.
The froth is for the many,
The wine is for the few;
Unseen, untouched of any,
We keep the best for you,
The very best for you.
"The many" cannot know us,
They only pace the strand
Where at our worst we show us,
The waters thick with sand;
But put beyond the leaping
Dim surge "'tis clear and blue,"
And there, old friends, we're keeping
A waiting calm for you,
A sacred calm for you.
Poet: Edgar A. Guest
If I can leave behind me here and there
A friend or two to say when I am gone
That I had helped to make their pathways fair.
Had brought them smiles when they were bowed with care,
The riches of this world I'll carry on.
If only three or four shall pause to say,
When I have passed beyond this earthly sphere.
That I brought gladness to them on a day
When bitterness was their's, I'll take away
More riches than a billionaire leaves here.
The sunshine and blue skies are fine,
I'm thankful for the flowers,
For they are truly gifts divine
To cheer this world of ours.
But flowers droop and skies turn gray
And oft the sunshine ends;
God's greatest blessings, so I say,
The river gently flowing by.
The rolling meadows green,
The mountains towering to the sky.
The valleys in between
Are all a part of God's great scheme
On which our joy depends;
But greatest of them all, I deem
When sorrow comes and grief is mine.
And hope is lost in gloom,
'Tis then that friendship comes to shine
Within my darkened room.
'Tis then that consolation sweet
My bitter woe attends.
For God has made this world complete
Good friends! God's greatest gift to man,
That's how they seem to me.
The keystone of His wondrous plan
To cheer humanity.
Out of His mercy infinite
I hold the best he sends
To fill this world with love and light

times or bad times, but a best friend is someone who is with you in good times
