“I miss my Best Friend” Poems

Poems are usually a great way to express how much you miss your best friend, and even if you don’t write yourself, you can read these poems and think about your best friend.

A poem for the times you miss your best friend that died:

“My best friend has gone away.

No more will we laugh and play,

No more games and whispered secrets shared.

No more comfort knowing she cared.

My best friend is lost and gone,

Never again to tag along

With me to the park or mall

Or have a sleepover or do anything at all.

I wish that I could have said goodbye,

Told her I would miss her; somehow I must try.

I have so much left to say.

I know! I will write my goodbye and send it her way.

In a note written down, then sent by fire and flame,

In a bottle on the sea, or a gift by her grave,

Or perhaps I will whisper it, and send it on a prayer

And imagine her reading it and knowing I care.

My best friend has died, nothing that can change.

But at least now I have said goodbye.

Farewell, dear friend; I will hold your memory in my heart

So as long as I live, we are never truly apart.”

This is a poem for all the best friends that are separated currently because of the COVID pandemic:

“Another month has come,

But you’re still so far away.

You’re always in my heart

Each and every day.

I’m sorry I couldn’t be here

For when you needed me most.

I wish time would hurry,

But it goes so slow.

Phone calls aren’t enough.

I need the real you,

The one who supports me,

My sister, my glue.

We’ve been through so much together

In so little time we’ve shared,

I will never forget all the moments

That you’ve shown me you cared.

I know it’s hard, but my time will come soon.

Keep smiling, beautiful, ’cause it looks good on you!

So until I see you when my time comes to an end,

Stay strong bub, love your best friend.”

This is a poem about missing your best friend from school:

“We are going to different high schools

I know it will be hard

we were best friends

and now we are ripped apart

I remember the good days we had

throughout these 3 long years

you were there when I was sad

even when I was in tears

But now it’s all changed

we can’t be together anymore

no more notebooks to exchange

or laughter to adore

No more inside jokes to hear

or gossip in the hall

now we have high school to fear

and that’s the worst of them all

I will never forget that smile of yours

and how it made me glad

just remember you’ll always be

the bestest friend I’ve ever had”

This next poem for when you miss your best friend is when you have stopped being friends and you think about how great your friendship was:

“we’ve always been together,

we did everything with laughter,

we thought it was forever.

when I was in danger

you knew how to ease my fear,

you were always there to be my savior.

at first we were strangers,

until we became closer,

and now we are together.

but time flows like a river.

it became complicated and faster,

until we realized that we’re older.

and that is what is keeping us apart,

I was here,

and you were there.

but I know we still care,

but our friendship slowly fades in the air,

how can it be so unfair?.

can “our past” be also called “our future?”

because I don’t want to surrender

the memories we’ve shared together.”

The last poem about missing your best friend is about being thankful for the amazing person your best friend is:

“I was sitting here thinking

of the words I want to say,

but they just wouldn’t come out right

so I found a different way

I got a piece of paper

and I wrote this poem for you,

but there’s no way to thank you

for everything you do

For always being nice to me

and staying by my side,

for helping fix my problems

and never leaving me behind

For accepting my thoughts and feelings,

though you do not understand,

for never giving up on me

and being my best friend

For making me laugh

and letting me cry

and saying you’d miss me

if I were to die

Everything you mean to me

you could never know

In all the ways you’ve changed my life

I could never show

The way you take care of me,

you’re my shining star

and though it’s so incredible

that’s just the way you are

Before I get too mushy

it’s time for me to go,

but before I leave this ink-filled page

there’s one thing you should know

As long as we are living,

no matter when or where,

if you ever need me

just call and I’ll be there

I’ll climb a thousand mountains

and swim a thousand seas

anything to be there

’cause you’ve been there for me”

When you miss your best friend it can sometimes hurt more than missing other people in your life, because the same social norms don’t seem to apply to friendship, and most times it might be harder to be with your friend long enough for it to help.

In addition, sometimes it can feel like no matter what you do it is not enough, and you may continue to feel like you miss your best friend however much you talk to them, which may mean that you don’t just miss the person, you are probably missing the person you were with them, or the situations you were in with them, or the part of your life you spent with them.

Whatever the reason, missing your best friend can be a difficult thing to experience, and sometimes you may feel like all you want to do is go to them.

If you’re facing this, it may be a good idea to seek the help of a therapist or other mental health professional. You can find a therapist at BetterHelp who can help you learn how to cope and address it.
