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!

To be honest, I'm not sure how this was voted the top piece of today. It really wasn't "powerful" to me....that's just my opinion. Also I think that exclamation mark is a little much, but overall this poem is good. Keep writing, you have big potential!

By the way - would anyone consider taking a look at my work? Right now I have two poems in. I really need feedback to improve my writing :) Thanks!

I really like this poem! I think everyone should have at least one best friend, or at least a good friend, like you described in this poem. :) Check out my work please!

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!
