Friendship Poems

Featured Friendship Poems

I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me.
I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day,
as you have meant, old friend of mine, to me along the way.
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

There is no friend like an old friend
Who has shared our morning days,
No greeting like his welcome,
No homage like his praise.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

While not written in a poetic form the words of James Boswell are one of our favorites on friendship,. "We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over."

You may also enjoy friendship toasts and toasts for a friend which are verses in the form of a toast that you may find useful when toasting a friend; use these for a birthday, a wedding, or any other special occasion. These have usually been passed down for generations. Great to use with friends!

Visit us again next month for new poems about being friends and friendship.
