Best Friend
Author: Ashlee Flannery


Every day i wonder
Why my best friend Jake had to go
He died at such a young age
Why? I dont know

Best friend as could be
He was like a little brother
Together always where him and me
We knew we would be friends forever

He was only 13
He was perfect in everyway
He was always there for me no matter what
Boys and girls can be best friends, i dont care what people say

Our friendship held so much love
It was unbreakable
We had been best friend since we only knew how to say WOVE
We were so close

When i heard horrible the news
That Jake died
I didnt know what to do
I just cried and cried

Baseball was his favorite game
He was number 14
People believed when he grew up he would have great baseball fame
He was the number one player on his team

The Lord took him
And he's now in a better place
I have pictures everywhere of him
Though, I miss seeing him face to face

We haven't said i love you
to each other personally for a long time
Though, everyday I tell him I love him and i know he says it back too
Our friendship and love will ALWAYS last

Girls come and boys go
But no one can take the place
Jake forever has in my heart
Even though I dont see him,
we're together everyday
Even when we are sooooo far apart

Its been a year and a half
Since my Jake has left this world
I know I will always remember him from his silly jokes that always made me laugh
But most importantly, for the fun, and best friend he gave to me

Jake I miss you and love you soo much i cant wait to hold u in my arms again!
Your favorite cream puff, Ash
