Best Friendship Poems
- “The Arrow and the Song” by Henry Wadsworth LongfellowI shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flightI breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroken;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
A good poem of friendship, The Arrow and the Song by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow reaffirms the fact that a friend can be your philosopher, teacher and guide. He/she is the one in front of whom you can express your experiences, creations and work without any inhibition.
- “A Special Kind Of Love” by Julia KistnerThere never was such a friendship that has made me feel this way
It’s been there from the beginning, so I just want to say,
You were there with me when it was hard to forget
That my heart was aching, and it hadn’t healed yet
The things you’ve said have proved me right
That this friendship has made me see the light
You’ve never tossed around my heart and I know it’s true
Because this is a Special Kind Of Love, for me, and for you!
A Special Kind Of Love by Julia Kistner is a short friendship poem that reasserts the importance of friendship in everyone’s life.
- “The Old Fella Out At Buck Creek” by Gordon B. MeltonHe’s a little hard of hearing so be loud when you speak
He’s lived many years and has seen many things
He’s as good as an Angel but without the wings
Sit with him a while and many stories you will hear
Stories of the War, the Drought, & to him things that are dear
His body looks feeble and a little weak
But watch him work and you will think he is at his peak
He goes to the pasture and gives his cattle some feed
Then he gets on his tractor and plows and plants some seed
When he is done, he looks around with a smile
Then he thanks God for letting him be around a while
He walks in his home, which he was born in
With never a frown, but only a grin
I visit with him as often as I can
For he is a very interesting man
When I talk to him, knowledge is what I seek
Because that’s one heck of a Fella out at Buck Creek
Seemingly, one of the best friendship poems the Old Fella out at Buck Creek by Gordon B. Melton expresses how friendship has no limitations. It is beyond any societal boundaries and every friend holds a special place.
- “My Friend” by Heidi DavinWhenever I think of the times we’ve shared together,
I’m reminded of the pains and heartaches we’ve had to weather.
It seems no matter what’s going on,
To find comfort we don’t have to wait too long.
What then do we do when times get harder, as we continue to grow older?
Let me just say this to you,
Our friendship is very dear and special, too.
So please, no matter what happens between us,
Don’t let our friendship turn to dust.
Or I will without a doubt fall apart,
With the pieces of my broken heart.
