Don't we all wish that our best friend lived next door to us? Best friends are always special as we can share anything and everything with them. In fact, we feel much closer to our best friends than we do with our family or partner, wishing they lived near us so that we could meet them every day. Shannon Haly—who goes by @shannonhaly on Instagram—has one such special person who lives far away from her. To express her longing for her BFF, Haly wrote and recited a beautiful poem that amassed a large audience on Instagram and resonated with many.

Haly, an Irish filmmaker living in New York, has written, directed and acted in a couple of critically acclaimed short films. Extending her creative side towards poetry as well, Haly showcased her heartening ode to her best friend on her Instagram reels. In an older post where the writer shared a picture of her and her best friend Julie Coleman, Haly commented that it was this friend that she wrote the poem for. Captioning the video "Miss you, bestie," Haly recited, "To my best friend that I don't get to see every day, my best friend who lives a full ocean away," and continued to deliver it in an appealing tone.

"Today, I was passing two girls just like us and it sort of just stopped me, just made my heart crush because the way they were laughing, they had these tears in their eyes," and added, "No words were coming, just joy making them cry." Revealing what actually made her sad, the filmmaker rendered, "They were a little bit younger, around the age that we first met and I think maybe that's why it made me so upset."

Haly recited, "Because these girls in the future may live an ocean away and they won't get to see each other every single day," and expressed how she wanted to travel back in time when she and her bestie were meeting each other often. "I would just give anything to just rewind and go back at the days of just laughing on a Monday just like that," she added, "I hope you know that you never leave my mind and I talk about you to everybody all of the time."

The wholesome poem ended with Haly saying, "No matter how many friends, new people I meet, I'd swim the ocean tomorrow to just laugh on the street." Overwhelming responses came in where people tagged their best friends and expressed how much they missed them too. "My best friend is living one ocean away and I miss her so much, as much as my heart is full of happiness for her to be living her dreams. She's the best person that I know and listening to this beautiful poem, in my mind was passing a movie of the greatest moments that I lived by her side and this brings me so much joy! I'm so grateful for her life and friendship," wrote @marylamim. @tifmos complimented Haly's recital commenting, "I love your eyes, as much as I love the way you blend words."
