My Sweet Friend

I want to hold you against my chest,

And protect you from all the rest.

Hold you until your teardrops dry,

Make you smile and not cry.

I know that you’ve been hurt so deep,

It hurts me so, to see you weep.

I wish that I could take your pain,

Heal your heart and free your brain.

This whole thing is very rough,

But I know that you can be tough.

Lean on me if you need to,

Until you’re not feeling blue.

I’ll be right here until the end,

I love you lots, my sweet friend.

No Goodbye

It’s been a week since you were here,

No goodbye, just my tears.

I miss the jokes that we’d share,

We really were quite a pair.

I hope you’ve found a happy place,

That puts a smile on your face.

I will miss you every single day,

In my heart is where you’ll stay.

Left Behind

Some say their heart breaks in two,

Mine is crushed by thoughts of you.

We were best friends for so long,

You’re gone now, I did nothing wrong.

I know you are going through deep pain,

And your teardrops fall like rain.

The reason you left, I know why,

I am friends with the other guy.

When you left him, you left me, too.

And now I’m here, feeling blue.

I’ll move on someday, I know,

But I’ll still wish you didn’t go.

I’ll miss you every single day,

And wonder why you couldn’t stay.

If this is the end, I’ll say one last thing,

I wish you all the happiness that life can bring.

Me and You

My heart would break if I lost you,

What once was bright would turn blue.

We talk and talk for hours each day,

You shine a light when my mood is grey.

We’ve never been in the same place,

Yet you’ve brought many smiles to my face.

Bestie, brother, choose one or two,

I need you here, forever me and you.

His Shining Hand

Darkness blotted out my light,

my body gripped with fright.

I had to leave that awful place,

teardrops dripping down my face.

I stumbled and fumbled along the wall,

until I heard the sweetest call.

His shining hand created the spark,

to lead me right out of the dark.

When times get tough, friendship can be,

the rock that supports both you and me.

New Friends

The boy sat out in the grass,

Watching each car quickly pass.

He didn’t know why he had no fun,

Ignored by parents and everyone.

One teardrop slipped from his eye,

He clenched his fists, he would not cry.

He stood and cursed the next car,

Though his voice did not travel far.

He never left his yard until this day,

But right now, he could not stay.

He kicked the dirt and walked up the street,

Until his wandering eye did meet.

He could not believe what he did see,

He thought to himself “that could be me”.

Another boy sat upon the grass,

Watching each car quickly pass.

The first boy stopped and sat down,

A smile replacing his weary frown.

The two boys talked all day long,

A brand-new friendship, starting strong.

Friendship

When friendships wane,

It can cause great pain.

You may not even know why,

But you think of them and cry.

Just living life may create the rift,

That made your friendship start to drift.

But I choose to hold on tight,

I won’t give up without a fight.

To me, my friends are very dear,

Whether they come from far or near.

If I label you as my friend,

Expect me to stick by you until the end.

I love each of you with all my heart,

And I never want our paths to part.
