What if I was dying.
Would you be at my side?
What would you expect from me?
To tell you why I love you?
To tell you that I'll always remember you?
To tell you to keep me in your heart?
You should already know,
That I love you,
That I want to be with you forever,
That I'll never forget you,
Even in the worst of times,
I'll be at your side, you'll be at mine,
Encouraging each other,
To keep going,
That we'll make it through,
That we can be together forever,
Because that's what friends do,
And I shouldn't even have to tell you,
That I love you.
I live for your smile, your happiness,
And I hope I'm the reason that you're smiling, too.
I hope that I mean the same to you,
Because that's what friends do,
And I love you.

I couldn't ever imagine losing my friends; to a disease, to a fight. It just doesn't seem right, they are my friends, and I love them. :)

"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

I can totally relate! This is a good poem, I feel the same way about my friends, and I want to tell them but I don't want to sound weird, you know? Anyway, i wrote a lot of poetry about my friends. Check it out and comment if you have the time! I'd love to get feedback from you!

This poem is very insightful.  How do you write so insightfully if never having gone through something like this?
