POETRY- MY BEST FRIEND

Updated on February 13, 2012

First off, thank you for your time. This poem reflects on the special relationship between a man and a woman when they are in love. We all have our ups and downs in any relationship. Bur through the wind and rain, love shines through the grey skies and prevails. Once again, thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy this poem titled, "My Best Friend". If you have the extra time, there is a link at the bottom that has other poems that I have written.

In the darkness


You are my light


In my weakness


You are my fight


If I am ever lost


You guide the way


You are the reason for


Who I am today


You are my shelter


Whenever it rains


When I am hurt


You can ease the pain


You bring joy to my life


With just a simple smile


You are the one


That made my life worthwhile


I still remember the first time


I looked into your eyes


It took only a short time


For me too realize


You were the one for me


Nobody could take your place


Time has no limits


In this heart you remain


Engraved into my life


A fire that burns out of control


An everlasting love


From the depths of my soul

With every day that passes


I only love you more


You give me the inspiration


To always do more


Always love one another


As if it was the last day


A single second is not granted


In an instant it can be gone away


So hold me close now baby


Promise to never let go


Your the love of my life


Your love is all I know


Thank you babe for everything


Even though you ask "what for"


I wouldn't be me without you


I could never wish for more


You offered to lift me up


When I was on my knees


A heart barely beating


Struggling just to breathe


You gave me hope with love


Our hearts have become one


As I think about when


My life with you begun


I wouldn't change a thing


Or what could have been


You will always be my love


My world, my life, my best friend

      I love the line: "I wouldn't be me without you", that says it all. Another beautiful poem. Reminds me of one I wrote for my best friend after she had a stroke. Check that one out when you have the time. Hope you day is wonderful, see you around....

      This is very encouraging and inspiring, a tribute to love. Some of these lines or even the entire poem could be spoken as wedding vows.

      Thanks for your visit Nell. I have always wrote lyrics instead of poetry, even though they are very similar. I have yet to post any of my songs, but I feel like I will. I believe I write the song first, then it becomes a poem. I am trying to say my lyrical side is always first, poetry second.

      This one nearly brought a tear to my eye. It was so breathtakingly heartfelt and so reminded me of the way I feel about my husband of 37 years!

      Love it and also the accompanying photos. Voted up across the board except for funny. You are such a gifted poet.

      HBN, thank you for your kind and inspirational words. I am glad you were able to relate to it in the form of your husband. That is what makes my poetry worthwhile, when others can read it and say, "that sounds like me". You have always been very supportive to me HBN and I thank you for that. Thanks for everything:) See you soon.

      Your a born romantic lyric. Beautiful. "Always love one another- As if it was the last day- A single second is not granted- In an instant it can be gone away." These are words of wisdom we should pay heed to every day. This ones from the heart.

      lyric writer, I know a lot of musicians so if I ever find one looking for a songwriter, I'll keep you posted. I know a lot about the music business but, unfortunately, I don't know a lot about selling tunes. I would recommend scanning craigslist and your local bars for new and emerging artists. Or, you could do what Neil Diamond did and just sing the songs yourself :-)

      Richard Ricky Hale 5 years ago from West Virginia

      I appreciate that very much. I can write and sing, good enough for a demo. I can write a complete song in 10 minutes unedited. Just wish I could get lucky and get a chance just once.
