Best Friends Forever This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


We've been friends now,

for quite a while.

Through ups and downs,

tears and smiles.

All those letters ending,

best friends forever.

All those ideas,

some crazy, some clever.

We shared the bad times,

and the happiness,

We know our friendship,

would be nothing less.

The times we spent together,

I'll always keep in my heart.

We know these memories,

would last from the start.

Talking for hours on the phone,

you always had good advice to loan.

So I dedicate this poem to you,

because you're a friend who has stayed true!

Well done:) The poem is nice. It's nice to have somewhere there for you. Or otherwise it gets lonely.

To add some interest, you could change the title to " Me through You" or " Friends to Eternity". Try bringing a unique spark so more people are intrigued. After all, friendship can be expresses in so many ways. Find one that's fun to read!

This was a beautiful poem. You stated how everyone who is fortunate enough to have best friends or a best friend feels without leaving out anything or over gushing. It was simply what everyone wishes to articulate to their best friends. I loved it honest clear concise keep writing.

Sorry, but I think you need to focus on using more strong emotion and passionate feelings than you used in this poem. The phrases and words were slightly predictable and clique. My advice: read more classical poetry and try practising similar language.

I agree with your feedback. It was a simple poem with simple words. With a theme as powerful as friendship, it could have had stronger use of words.

I agree 100%. If her friendship with this person meant a lot to her i would expect she'd use stronger words.

I didnt really like this poem very much. there are alot of very bland thoughts and ideas I thought. also its not really a subject i can relate on so maybe thats it.
