Best Friend Poem

Friendship is The Best Ship Of All

The meaning of this poem is that when someone stumbles through life not knowing where to go, his/her friends are always there for each other, and that you should never trade friends (and family) for anything.

This poem is dedicated to her best friends, Aliya, Viviene, Chris, and Brandon.

The Best Ship Of All

© Valerie M.
Friendship is priceless,
And can never be forgotten,
Friendship is timeless,
And never rotten,

It takes more than hugs and kisses
To be a real friend,
the nature of friendship,
Requires a blend.

The road to a happy life,
May sometimes make us stumble.
But to have a friend to give us a hand,
Teaches us to be humble.

Good friends are hard to find,
Hard to lose,
And impossible to forget,
But when they fly away,
Your anger turns to regret

Sometimes in life, we need a special person
To listen while we talk.
A special person who will not discourage or judge,
But encourage us as we walk.

Friends are there
To help you along,
The journey through friendship,
Is always long.

In life,
There are big ships,
And there are small ships,
But the best ship of all,
Is friendship.

    I feel this poem is very good. I have a friend who is having a birthday in a short while, I have known him for over 30 years. He lives in South Africa, and I have moved to the UK. Unfortunately I am not able to go and I think this poem will reflect our friendship.

  2. Hey I gave this poem to my friend for her birthday and she loved it I would have never thought of something that clever
