All Along

Friendship Poems

People have told me that we could never be friends,
That you would grow up and not stay till the end.
But I know that is not what you do,
That you’ll stay by my side and always be true.
They said it was extremely strange,
Because between us there is 5 years of age.
They didn’t know you were a child at heart,
That you kept on saving me, from falling apart.
You were always there when times were tough,
When friends were fake and life was rough.
You would stay by my side and hold me close,
And always understand if things arose.
You were the big sister I never had,
Because you listen to my problems and never get mad.
Nobody understood why you liked me at all,
That strange girl with the untidy scrawl.
And quite frankly neither could I,
I thought you wouldn’t stick around and just pass me by.
So that’s why I’m writing this,
Just to say,
That I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
So I’m saying thanks for all that you've done,
For not giving up when it all begun.
I’m very glad that we proved them wrong,
Because here we are together, like all along.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this for my best friend who is 18. My parents didn't and still don't believe that she's any good for me and don't understand why she likes me so I wrote this to show that I really value her friendship.

I really liked the way this one flowed. The rhyming was great! and the emotion in it was beautiful. I really enjoyed reading this one. I am looking forward to reading more of your work.

Your comment has really made me feel better! I was unsure about whether i was actually going to give it to her or not but I am now a little more persuaded! :)
