My Friend Jarrod

You were so young You were so bright Now I sit here crying tonight Because of an overdose I've lost another friend Whose life was cut short and brought to an end I just don't understand how you got involved with that But now because of that drug you'll never come back I remember when we would all hang out at school Run around and act like fools You could always brighten anyones day With your caring, playful ways When ever I was having problems You gave me advice and tried to solve them I remember the day that Ian died Me and you held each other while we cried and cried But now you are the one who has died And you're not here to hold me while I cry So now what am I going to do The one who comforted me then was you But no matter what I will never forget your big old smile And i will never forget your crazy style And no matter where I go, no matter what I do I will never forget you We will always love and miss you R.I.P Jarrod Alan Mihaljevic September 3, 1986 - December 15, 2004
