About the Poem

I am a senior in high school with graduation less than a month away. I wrote this to one of my best friends, who has been my best friend since kindergarten.

True Friend

Excitement and fear fill our hearts.
Soon a new way of life will start.
Thirteen years have almost past.
But in our mind the memories last.

We've been through it all.
And realized who are true friends are.
The one that was there.
When no one else seemed to care.

So as our senior year comes to an end.
I want to say, thanks for being a true friend.

Girl you've got some talent. That is such a true poem, and it's touching in a while that you wouldn't even believe. Mostly because I feel the same way since my senior year is coming to and end. Keep up the work it'll take you FAR!
Tiffany
This poem meant so much to me. I had a best friend in 1st grade but ever since 7th grade, we've been apart. It was devastating but yet we still get to chat on the phone, IM each other and shop together at the mall. but still it won't be the same because we go to different schools. I know my friend feels the same way. It's like we're sisters! We are bb4ever!
