Я не могу этого сделать, - сказала она. - Даже при одной мысли об этом мне становится холоднее, чем от ветра. Не ходи дальше, Элвин. - В этом нет никакой логики. - безжалостно настаивал Элвин. - Ну чем тебе повредит, если ты дойдешь до конца этого коридора и посмотришь наружу.

1) It’s been a long time since
You and I have been friends
We are proof of the fact that
All good things don’t always end
Through happiness and sadness
Through highs and lows
I’m here for you forever
Is what I want you to know
2) Living life without a friend like you
Would be like having a wine gone bad
Attending school and college without you
Would have surely driven me mad
Flipping a photo album without you in it
Would be like watching a rainbow in sepia
Not sharing all my problems with you
Would put me in a massive dilemma
Every aspect of life would be empty
Blank and totally colorless
If you weren’t there in my life
To fill it up with sublime happiness
3) For being a friend worthy of
Being thanked every single day
I want to show my gratitude to you
In every possible way
I don’t know where to start
Maybe you could suggest something too
Start thinking and make a list of stuff
That I can do to pamper you
4) When I lost belief in myself
You became my self-esteem
When my eyes were shedding tears
You became their gleam
When my ego took a beating
You stoked it like fire
You trusted me even when
The world called me a liar
When I became difficult
You showed patience with me
I guess, best friends forever
We’re meant to be
5) The quirks and the laughs
The smiles and the selfies
The crazy and the cool
The fun and the memories
The weird and the awesome
The tears and the frowns
The hits and the misses
The ups and the downs
Our friendships has been
One awesome ride
I’m glad I have friends
Like you by my side
6) You have stood by me like a rock
Even though I never asked you to
Not just when I was right
But when I was wrong too
You have done everything
That is expected from a friend
To how much I love you
There is simply no end
7) There was a time when I thought
That friendship was just about laughs and smiles
But now I’ve realized how the tears and sobs
Are also what makes it meaningful and worthwhile
Together, we’ve not just smiled and laughed
But also fought, argued and cried
No matter what, I’ve always seen you
Right beside me, after the tears have dried
For the way you’ve stood by me all the time
I don’t know what to say or do
Maybe it’ll take a lifetime to repay the gratitude
But for now, I’ll start with saying Thank You
8) You are the one because of whom
Our fights have never lasted long
You are the reason why
Our friendship is so strong
You are the cause for us to be
Close, even when we are miles apart
It is because of you that I
Live life carefree, with all my heart
You are the only person
Who gets credit for our friendship
For making it the most
Sweetest and cutest relationship
9) Like yin and yang, like black and white
Like rough and smooth, like day and night
Like easy and tough, like hot and cold
Like low and high, like silver and gold
Like light and dark, like weak and strong
Like bright and dull, like short and long
We’re opposites, but totally complementary
Best Friends Forever, we’re meant to be
10) No matter how much time
We spend together
Whether hours or days
Enough, it seems never
I don’t know how I’d cope
If you were to go away
That moment would usher in
My life’s most painful days
Let’s promise each other
That regardless of where
Life takes us, for each other
We’ll always be there
11) I want to make the world jealous
I want to make everyone envious
To the whole world I want to announce
The reason my step has a bounce
I want to shout for everyone to hear
The name my heart holds dear
It’s you, a friend whose smiles
Makes everything in life worthwhile
12) No matter what life throws at me
The memories of our friendship will always
Help me remain happy and strong
Even while facing tough and bad days
The smiles, the laughs the sheer awesomeness
Of the times we’ve spent together
Is something that I’ll hold close to my heart
Till the end of time, forever and ever
13) From silly habits to crazy rants
Patiently tolerating everything
That I could throw at you
Is why you are, my darling
If you weren’t my bestie
I just don’t know what I’d do
Depressed is what I feel even if
I try to imagine life without you
14) A spouse is a better half
Is what people usually say
But in this traditional idea
I don’t believe in any way
My better half right now
Is none other than you
A friend, who supports me
In everything I do
15) Whether it is a new app
Or games on my PlayStation
Using them without you
Wouldn’t make them as much fun
Whether it is checking out people
Or asking them out on a date
Without you all these things
In my life, would have to wait
Thanks for being a friend
Who I can’t enjoy life without
There’s no one else like you
Of that I have no doubt
16) Gratitude is not enough
A loving gesture is not sufficient
A simple note of thanks
Will look too complacent
To convey my gratefulness to you
I will have to do something drastic
I owe you something big
For being a friend so fantastic
17) For being more like family
And less of a friend
Looking out for me always
At every corner and bend
I should have expressed
My thoughts, a long ago
For having you, how thankful
I feel, I want you to know
18) To reveal my real friends
I didn’t need adversity
I knew you were my true friend
Irrespective of a calamity
To see who I could trust
I didn’t need trouble to arise
The fact that I could depend on you
Was no surprise
Like us, very few people
Can proudly say
That they are friends forever
Come what may
19) A friend who tells me off
When I am blatantly wrong
A friend who gives me solace
When the nights are long
A friend who gets involved
Even when there is no need
To the fine details of my life
A friend who pays heed
You are, all this and more
On you, my life truly depends
I’m glad fate chose you
To be my bestest friend
20) Thanks for doing me a favor
By once again being my savior
Thanks for supporting me
Not just once but repeatedly
Thanks for cutting me some slack
Thanks for always watching my back
Thanks for helping me in times of need
You are a special friend, indeed
21) My best friend forever
That you are
The best thing to happen
In my life so far
My daily dose
Of happiness and inspiration
My dear friend
You are the one
22) If I hadn’t met you
Things would have been bad
I don’t who I would’ve called
Whenever I was sad
I would’ve had no one
To tell my secrets to
By my side if I didn’t
Have an amazing friend like you
23) I can’t think of a better way
Than writing a sweet poem to say
Thank you, for everything you’ve done
Since the day, our friendship had begun
I’ll never be able to repay this debt
No matter what I do, I bet
I promise, to be a friend to you
Like you’ve been to me, so true
24) More than a gift
More than a journey
More than a treat
More than just destiny
Our friendship is
It makes everything
Seem so magical
Here’s to you
A friend unlike any other
Here’s to us
25) No one would laugh at my jokes
No one would call me pretty
All my hidden talents and qualities
No one would be able to see
No one would know my secrets
No one would call me at midnight
No one would ever know
What I want in my Mr. Right
No one would care about my crush
No one would realize my preferences
If I didn’t have a friend like you
I would miss life’s best experiences
26) The test of time
Has been survived
Of each other’s company
Although we were deprived
The test of distance
Has been won by us
Even though were apart
We didn’t make a fuss
Every curve ball that life
Threw at our friendship
In fact, made it
A much stronger relationship
27) If I had to give
Our friendship a label
I would call it a journey
Awesome and special
It I had to give it
A heading or a title
I would call it a road trip
Carefree and incredible
Our friendship, if I had to
In just one line, summarize
I’d say it is my
Life’s best prize
28) A sturdy wall
An unshakable pillar
Is what you have been to me
By being a friend so dear
A roof on the head
A robust parapet
You are one the most
Reliable people I have met
You have always shielded me
And been protective
A heartfelt thank you for that
Is what I want to give
29) Just like how a sunflower always
Looks in the direction of the sun
I too look towards a friend like you
When I want to have some fun
Just like how a mouse always goes
In the direction it smells cheese
I too look for a friend like you
For my happiness to increase
Just like how the moon and stars
Always go together
We will be friends for eternity
Now and forever
30) Friends like you are worth
Their weight in gold
My valuable keepsake
Even when I become old
Way more precious
Than gems or pearls
Life’s true meaning
They help unfurl
Awesome and fun
For money can’t buy
A poem can be a perfect thank you note, whether you're glad for a nice dinner with friends (see Bernadette Mayer's “We Eat Out Together”) or thanking a parent .
I wrote a poem for my best friend for her 30th birthday this year and wanted to share it with you in case you wanted to share it with “your person.”
“I believe there are no random meetings in our lives—that everyone we touch, who touches us, has been put in our path for a reason. The briefest encounter can open a door, or heal a wound, or close a circle that was started long before your birth.” — Susanna Kearsley, Every Secret Thing
This is why I love my best friend: She's the kind of person who walks into the room and says, “Here we are!”
I know how blessed I am to have this kind of a friend, one who hears and sees; not everyone has that. Best friendship is a blessing. I do think, though, that no matter how old we get, there's always room for that kind of real connection.
Beautiful people don’t just exist—they are everywhere. You never know when you’ll run into someone who makes you remember what love really means.
If every relationship was first grounded in friendship, the world would be a brighter place.
In honor of the girl who has heard and seen me through the hardest, darkest moments of my life, who's helped me become a friend to myself, this poem. A "thank you." An "I love you."
And if you want to celebrate your person with poetry, go visit my shop for prints of handwritten poems and other words of hope and heart. Your BFF will love it.
Sitting here, no words seem right because
I’m trying to bottle into words
What you’ve meant to me in
All these seasons of my life.
You have been every color and shade of
Every kind of medicine for a soul.
Your heart has helped mine to remember
How to be whole.
When I thought it was the end,
You helped me figure out
How to start again.
Let me tell you who you are
To someone who loves
Everything you are:
You are Grace embodied, and
Even if you have tears in your eyes,
Grace would look like you.
Even when you forget who you are,
I know your truth, and
If you asked me how I knew,
I’d have tears in my eyes
Trying to bottle into words
Everything you’ve given and
Everything you’ve been.
If I were to offer one word to describe you,
There is no hesitation and only affirmation:
Above all else,
You are love without end —
The kind that sometimes shows up as Grace
On an old friend’s doorstep,
The kind with no conditions that walks in
For tea but leaves you with so much more.
The only kind of love that really exists:
This is what you’ve been to me, and
If you ever forget your name,
Just ask me:
I would know.
. . .
Which part of this poem is your favorite?
Tell me in the comments. I read every single one, and I’d love to know!
Be someone who reminds someone else what love really means.
Thank you friend for everything I am glad you really cared Thanks for never leaving me Thank you for being there.

Let's Not Wait
We will meet again my friend,
We will know each others' eyes
We will meet, I'm sure of this,
A Friend's Smiling Face
There is a place I like to go
Friends come and go,
but with a precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
because the older you get,
the more you need the people
who knew you when you were young.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when he discovers that someone else believes in him
and is willing to trust him.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives
mean the most to us,
we often find that it is those who,
instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures,
have chosen rather to share our pain
and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us
in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing
and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares.
We are friends and I do like to pass the day with you
in serious and inconsequential chatter.
I wouldn't mind washing up beside you,
dusting beside you,
reading the back half of the paper while you read the front.
We are friends and I would miss you,
do miss you and think of you very often.
A friend is a person of great understanding
Who shares all our hopes and our schemes,
A companion who listens with infinite patience
To all of our plans and dreams.
A true friend can make all our cares melt away
With the touch of a hand or a smile,
And with calm reassurance make everything brighter,
And life always seem more worthwhile.
A friend shares so many bright moments of laughter
At even the tiniest thing--
What memorable hours of light-hearted gladness
And pleasure this sharing can bring!
A friend is a cherished and precious possession
Who knows all our hopes and fears,
And someone to treasure deep down in our hearts
With a closeness that grows through the years.
A friend is someone who listens,
A friend is someone who cares.
A friend is someone who understands,
A friend is someone who shares.
It's nice to have a special friend
To tell all your secrets to.
It's nice to know that someone you like,
Is someone who really likes you.
A friend is someone you call on the phone
To talk about nothing at all.
A friend is someone who cheers you up.
And makes you feel ten feet tall.
Everyone would like to have
A special friend it's true
But if you want a special friend,
You need to be one, too.
(B. J. Morbitzer)
Life is sweet,
just because of the friends we have made,
And the things which in common we share;
We want to live on, not because of ourselves,
But because of the people who care.
It's giving and doing for somebody else--
On that, all life's splendor depends . . .
And the joy of this world,
when you've summed it all up,
Is found in the making of friends.
(Music by Elton John)
There isn't much I haven't shared
With you along the road.
And through it all there'd always be
Suddenly that isn't true
There's another avenue
Beckoning the great divide.
Ask no questions, take no side
Who's to say who's right or wrong
Whose course is braver run.
Still we are, have always been
Will ever be as one.
What is done has been done for the best
Though the mist in my eyes might suggest
Just a little confusion
about what I'll lose.
But if I started over
I know I would choose
The same joy the same sadness
each step of the way
That fought me and taught me
that friends never say,
Never say goodbye.
Sometimes along life's pathways there will come a friend,
Who gets to know you inside out, right to the very end,
The depth and height and width of all that makes you 'you',
And they continue liking you no matter what you do.
They get to see inside of you where others dare not go,
And soon they are a part of you and you find you love them so.
They let you laugh and share your joy, they help you through the day,
And no matter what you've said or done, they never turn away.
Sometimes when things are getting rough, and when the crying's done,
They'll join with you in games and play, just like when you were young,
And had a special playmate who would run the field of joys,
That children find around the bend with other girls and boys.
They're honest and they're faithful, they try never to betray
The precious trust between you as you live from day to day.
It's so hard to express sometimes, and though it might sound odd,
My best way to describe them is they are a gift from God.
And so, my friend, I'm writing with a thankful heart to say
I'm so glad I have a friend like you to help me on my way.
When the ocean of life was rough thank you for being my buoy
But mostly thanks for running with me through the Field of Joys.
I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every now and then�I go and take a look.
That is when I realize these names, they are a part,
not of the book they're written in�but taken from the heart.
For each Name stands for someone�who has crossed my path sometime,
and in that meeting they have become�the reason and the rhyme.
Although it sounds fantastic�for me to make this claim,
I really am composed�of each remembered name.
Although you're not aware�of any special link,
just knowing you, has shaped my life�more than you could think.
So please don't think my greeting�as just a mere routine,
your name was not�forgotten in between.
For when I send a greeting�that is addressed to you,
it is because you're on the list�of folks I'm indebted to.
So whether I have known you�for many days or few,
in some ways you have a part�in shaping things I do.
I am but a total�of many folks I've met,
you are a friend I would prefer�never to forget.
Thank you for being my friend!
It is not wise to count your friends
on a bright sunny day.
When the sky is blue
and smiles come so easily.
Instead wait for a storm,
when the clouds are dark
and the day grows cold.
Laughter is not heard
in your heavy heart.
Then when a friend comes
and stands beside you
and lifts your spirits to the sky
and laughter is in your heart,
he or she deserves the name . . . friend.
(B.J. Morbitzer, used with permission)
If nobody smiled and nobody cared
and nobody helped us along.
If every moment looked after itself and
good things always went to the strong;
If nobody cared just a little about you
and nobody cared about me,
and we stood alone, in the battle of life,
what a dreary old world this would be
Live is sweet, just because of the friends we have made
and the things which in common we share,
We want to live on, not because of ourselves
but because of the people who care.
It is doing and giving for somebody else
on which all of life's splendor depends.
The joy of this world, when you've summed it all up
is found in the making of friends
There are friends who pass like ships in the night,
Then there are friends that sail together,
(B. J. Morbitzer)
There's a miracle called Friendship
But the happiness it brings you
Thank You for the Light
Into the dim lit, bare walls of my world,
With tender care, you added comfort, warmth,
With me; our friendship has become a part
Remembering just how drab these walls had been,
Friendship is a Golden Chain
(Helen Steiner Rice)
Friendship is a golden chain--
Time can't destroy its beauty
For friendship is a priceless gift
The Key to Friendship
The key to friendship..
It's not how you make a person smile
The key to friendship..
(based on a poem © Sandra Lewis Pringle)
If I could catch a rainbow,
If I could build a mountain
If I could take your troubles,
I can not build a mountain
When we share laughter, there's twice the fun;
When we share dreams, they become more real;
If we share with someone on whom we depend,
Today I share this poem with you . . .
from Count Me In
(Gary Lewis and the Playboys)
If you need someone to count on
When you start to count the ones
If you need someone to count on
Just be sure you count on me
Good friends are one in a million.
Good friends are lives overlapping.
The Gift of Happiness
If I had a magic wand
When you get right down to it
Around the corner I have a friend
If, we were younger then,
Around the corner!--yet miles away,
Wherever we go,
He drew a circle that shut me out--
The Seeds of Friendship
Seeds God has planted here on earth
Value your friends, honor their decisions,
Never be angry if you don't talk to them each day,
Hold their memory in your heart and mind,
Friends Are Angels
Our friends are like angels
Their thoughtfulness comes
Like upside-down rainbows,
Friends are like angels
Your friends are very precious things;
Their love is like the rarest gem.
But friends are hard to find and keep
Unless you are a friend to them.
Thanks for being There
The world is moving faster now;
When I have had to follow new directions,
When nothing held together or
Everyone needs someone
Our friendship is soothing
Our friendship can bloom
Our friendship brings rainbows
Our friendship withstands hardships
I Call You Friend
A friend like you is a special gift
You know my thoughts before I speak,
You're always there with a hug to share,
Magic in Our Friendship
There is magic in our friendship
There is something magical
That's the magic I feel
My Wish for You
I wish you happiness--
I wish you serenity
I wish you success
I wish you dreams
Above all I wish you could see
A Part of My Life
Somehow, out of all the twists and turns
Friends are like MATH!
They multiply your joy,
I Think we're close enough that
we can discuss our relationship
freely without feeling embarrassed.
I hope I don't make you uncomfortable
when I go a step further and say those
'Three Little Words' that sum up how
I feel about having you as a friend . . .
You're Damn Lucky!
I took the time to write this poem to appreciate my friends and how wonderful it is to have them because without friends it's hard. I like to give my friends reasons.
