Long Distance Best Friends – A #Cheers guest post by Powerporter

Welcome to the 12th post in the #Cheers! Series!

Those of you that have popped by my site before will know that I am a tiny bit obsessed with rhyming. #Cheers! is a series of rhyming guest posts that I am honoured to share, mostly with a parenting theme, from some of the most talented and lovely people in Blogland!

Today I am pleased to share a poem which I know that I for one can really relate to, about the amazing friends that I think most of us have, that are no longer around the corner, but that still hold a massive place in our lives and hearts.  This comes from the lovely Emma at Powerporter.  Emma shares beautiful heartfelt posts about her gorgeous family, and writes fabulous poems such as Toddler Struggles and A Busy Family Tale.  She has just celebrated her 3 month blogiversary (sending cake) and I was really excited to find her blog. I’m very nuch looking forward to reading more of her story and her adventures as a family of four.

It’s my pleasure to hand you over to Emma…

Long Distance Best Friends
My best friend, lives far away,
I wish, I could see her everyday,
To chat and moan, and drink too much tea,
Just pop in when you need her, just be me,


That’s how I feel, when we are together,
I’m me, just I, I can be just Emma,
Relaxed and chilled, that’s how we are,
No airs and graces, I don’t need a bra!


Or makeup either, she doesn’t care,
She is, just happy, as long as I’m there,
Don’t get me wrong, we talk everyday,
Even if, there is nothing to say,


We always know, the other is there,
To listen, or laugh, but just to care,
Care about, the little things,
What you had for tea, the stuff life brings,


We are mummies now, so are both very busy,
Less nights out, less drinking and getting dizzy,
A rare chance these days, for us to meet,
Go shopping, or maybe pamper our feet,


I tell her all, my secrets too,
Even when, it contains children’s poo!
She knows it’s me, her crazy friend,
I hope it lasts, until the very end,


But I still just wish, she lived so near,
My bud, my girl, I hold so dear.



I’m Emma from the blog Powerporter, a lifestyle, parenting and blog about me! A place I use to talk about my life and the little family I have created. There is me, my hubby Gary, daughter Cordelia a cheeky threenager and her baby brother Davie. We live a relatively normal (whatever that is) family life, although that may be set to change with me going back to full time work and my husband becoming a full time daddy!! Watch this space! Poems have been a recent addition to my blog but I love writing them so was so excited when I got the opportunity to be featured here!!

  1. Aw, I so relate to this. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few best friends in my time, all of whom now live thousands of miles away. Thank God for Facebook and Skype! But it’s never the same as when you’re close. #bigpinklink

  2. I like Emma’s blog! Lovely poem! I know exactly what she means as my dear friend is far away in Spain. And yes we have skype and whatsapp… But sometimes, I would just like a cuddle! #DreamTeam

  3. Aaaawww, another fabulous addition to this lovely series! I can totally relate to this! In my case, it’s my cousins who I feel like this about, and we have just come back from a weekend visiting them, where I cried like a child when the time came to leave…! I love the sister-like relationship I have with them, and miss them every day. But it’s fabulous to keep the memories you make when you do see each other, and makes seeing the people who are this special to you, even more amazing!

    1. Aw thanks lovely! I can so relate to how you’re feeling. I had family living in Spain for some years and I used to be heartbroken when I had to leave them. You soon settle back into routine but there’s always still that little gap where they should be isn’t there? Thank you for commenting and I hope you get to see your cousins again soon xx
