Short Poems

1. “Gone Too Soon”
Our memories linger, but you’re gone too soon,
Left us with a heartache that won’t heal soon,
We miss your laughter, your smile, and your scent,
Lost a friend, a confidant, and a soulmate.

2. “Invisible Wounds”
The tears we shed are like invisible wounds,
The pain we feel is like monsoons,
We try to hide our grief with a brave face,
But deep inside, we feel like an empty space.

3. “Memories Remain”
The bond we shared was too strong to break,
But fate had other plans, and you had to take,
The memories we have are all that we hold,
That make us cherish the moments we unfold.

4. “Hope and Healing”
Time may not heal the wound,
But it can help us learn to cope,
Friends may come and go,
But the memories of you will never go.

Medium Poems

The Friend I Lost

The friend I lost, oh where did you go?
In my memory, you’ll never be unknown.
We laughed, we cried, so many good times,
But now you’re gone, and everything’s out of line.

I miss your smile, your voice, your face,
Wishing things hadn’t ended in such disgrace.
I’ll always cherish the memories we shared,
Treasured moments that can never be compared.

I hope you’re happy, wherever you may be,
And know that you mean so much to me.
Though we may have gone our separate ways,
Your friendship will remain with me always.

The Void of Friendship

A void of friendship, left in my heart,
Where once you stood, but now we’re apart.
Our laughter and love, now just a memory,
Leaves me feeling empty, so cold and lonely.

I miss our talks, our endless fun,
The way we’d giggle until the day was done.
You always knew just what to say,
To make me feel better, on the darkest of days.

I wish we could go back to the way things were,
And forget about the hurt, the pain, the blur.
But time has passed, the damage is done,
And now we’re just strangers, back to square one.

But even though you’re gone, and we’re no longer friends,
I’ll always keep you close, until the very end.
For you brought light into my life, even if just for a while,
A true friend, whose memory I’ll always hold with a smile.

Long Poems

Gone with the Wind

Oh, how we laughed and played,
The memories of you will never fade.
From good times we shared,
To secrets that we bared.

But like leaves drifting away,
You vanished without a say.
Leaving no trace behind,
Your absence, a puzzle we can’t unwind.

Days turned to months,
As our once strong bond confronts.
We searched high and low,
For a sign that you still glow.

But the silence from your end,
A deafening noise that we can’t mend.
We wonder where you might be,
With hopes of bringing you back to the family.

Perhaps life took an unexpected turn,
Or our friendship had run its churn.
Whatever the reason, we’ll never know,
As we miss you more with every tomorrow.

So, here’s a toast to the memories we made,
And the moments that will never fade.
We’ll keep you in our hearts and mind,
As we pray for you to come back in time.

My dear lost friend, wherever you are,
Know that you are never too far.
For the wind carries our love and care,
And brings it to you, wherever you may fare.

In Memoriam of a Lost Friend

I think of you often, my dear lost friend,
And the memories we shared, they’ll never end.
We laughed and we cried, we danced and we sang,
We dreamed of our futures, it was a beautiful thing.

But life can be cruel, and the journey’s not fair,
You left us too soon, and it’s hard to bear.
I miss your smile, your laugh, your look,
The way that you lived, each day like a book.

You had a passion for life that was contagious,
Your spirit was free, and it was outrageous.
You lived in the now, and always gave more,
Your heart was so big, and it’s what I adore.

I know that you’re gone, but I feel you close by,
In the stars in the sky, in the breeze that blows by.
You left a mark on my life, and it will never fade,
Your spirit lives on, and in my heart it’s made.

They say that time heals, and it lessens the pain,
But I still feel the hurt, and it won’t be in vain.
I hold onto the memories, and the love that we had,
And I know that you’re happy, in that big happy land.

The tears still fall, but the smile comes back,
When I think of the love, and the joy that we had.
I’ll never forget you, my cherished friend,
And I’ll hold onto the love, until we meet again.
