Best Poems About Friendship

Alone by Maya Angelou

Alone by Maya Angelou

“Lying, thinking

Last night

How to find my soul a home

Where water is not thirsty

And bread loaf is not stone

I came up with one thing

And I don’t believe I’m wrong

That nobody,

But nobody

Can make it out here alone.”

In The Company Of Women by January Gill-O’Neil

“Make me laugh over coffee,

make it a double, make it frothy

so it seethes in our delight.

Make my cup overflow

with your small happiness.

I want to hoot and snort and cackle and chuckle.

Let your laughter fill me like a bell.

Let me listen to your ringing and singing

as Billie Holiday croons above our heads.”

Sybil by Julia Ward Howe

“Your head is wild with books, Sybil,

But your heart is good and kind—

I feel a new contentment near you,

A pleasure of the mind.

Glad should I be to sit beside you,

And let long hours glide by,

Reading, through all your sweet narrations,

The language of your eye.”

On Friendship by Khalil Gibran

On Friendship by Khalil Gibran

“And a youth said, Speak to us of Friendship.

And he answered, saying:

Your friend is your needs answered.

He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.

And he is your board and your fireside.

For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.”

Red Brocade by Naomi Shihab Nye

“The Arabs used to say,

When a stranger appears at your door,

feed him for three days

before asking who he is,

where he’s come from,

where he’s headed.

That way, he’ll have strength

enough to answer.

Or, by then you’ll be

such good friends

you don’t care.”

What is the greatest gift? by Mary Oliver

“What is the greatest gift?

Could it be the world itself—the oceans, the meadowlark,

the patience of the trees in the wind?

Could it be love, with its sweet clamor of passion?

Something else—something else entirely

holds me in thrall.

That you have a life that I wonder about

more than I wonder about my own.“

To All My Friends by HAUNTIE

“To all my friends who have been with me in weakness

when water falls rush down my two sides

To all my friends who have felt me in anguish

when this earthen back breaks between the crack of two blades

To all my friends who have held me in rage

when fire tears through swallows behind tight grins

I know you

I see you

I hear you“

My Friends by Ali Power

“why be evasive

when you can listen to an audio book

about a biologist

on a mysterious expedition

to Area X

an area cut off from civilization

today I’ve spoken to no one

and I feel fine

but feelings aren’t facts my friends

and I’ve eaten the last of the cheese

and table water crackers

and I have no salary

but I will hold you”

1383 by Emily Dickinson

“Long Years apart – can make no

Breach a second cannot fill –

The absence of the Witch does not

Invalidate the spell –

The embers of a Thousand Years

Uncovered by the Hand

That fondled them when they were Fire

Will stir and understand –“


acknowledgments by Danez Smith

“at the function, i feel myself splitting into too many rooms of static

you touch my hand & there i am

do you want to be best friends?

a box for yes, a box for no”

Comrades Four by Claude McKay/

“Dear comrades, my comrades,

My heart is always true;

An’ ever an’ ever

I shall remember you.

We all joined together,

Together joined we four;

An’ I have been first to

Pass t’rough the open door.“

Love and Friendship by Emily Bronte

“Love is like the wild rose-briar,

Friendship like the holly-tree—

The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms

But which will bloom most constantly?“

To The Oppressors by Pauli Murray

“Now you are strong

And we are but grapes aching with ripeness.

Crush us!

Squeeze from us all the brave life

Contained in these full skins.

But ours is a subtle strength

Potent with centuries of yearning,

Of being kegged and shut away

In dark forgotten places.

We shall endure

To steal your senses

In that lonely twilight

Of your winter’s grief.”

Silhouette by Janice Lobo Sapigao

”more and more of my friends

are becoming parents or partners

to plants

i have lived long and short enough

to remember the homegirls who

danced non-stop until three a.m.

the moon a parabola to our party

i’ve grown up enough

to see them sing their favorite slow songs

to herbs and succulents on their windowsills

in homes they sowed from dreams”


Cento Between the Ending and the End by Cameron Awkward-Rich

“it is like the world

hasn’t happened

when I call out

all my friends are there

everyone we love

is still alive gathered

at the lakeside

like constellations

my honeyed kin

honeyed light

beneath the sky”

Thank You, Friend

Thank you, friend, for all the things

That mean so much to me

For concern and understanding

You give abundantly.

Thanks for listening with your heart;

For cheering me when I’m blue;

For bringing out the best in me;

And just for being you.

Thanks for in-depth conversation

That stimulates my brain;

For silly times we laugh out loud;

For things I can’t explain.

For looking past my flaws and faults;

For all the time you spend;

For all the kind things that you do,

Thank you; thank you, friend.

By Joanna Fuchs

A Time To Talk by Robert Frost

“When a friend calls to me from the road

And slows his horse to a meaning walk,

I don’t stand still and look around

On all the hills I haven’t hoed,

And shout from where I am, What is it?

No, not as there is a time to talk.

I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,

Blade-end up and five feet tall,

And plod: I go up to the stone wall

For a friendly visit.”

i want to apologize by rupi kaur

“i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful

before i’ve called them intelligent or brave

i am sorry i made it sound as though

something as simple as what you’re born with

is all you have to be proud of

when you have broken mountains with your wit

from now on i will say things like

you are resilient, or you are extraordinary

not because i don’t think you’re beautiful

but because i need you to know

you are more than that.”

Your Catfish Friend by Richard Brautigan/

“I’d love you and be your catfish

friend and drive such lonely

thoughts from your mind

and suddenly you would be

at peace,

and ask yourself, I wonder

if there are any catfish

in this pond? It seems like

a perfect place for them.
