A Year Ago Today


A year has passed since that horrible day
that the man up above took our friend away

It doesnt feel like its been that long
since he was here living life, rockin out to some song

A talented guy and a great friend indeed
i dont think he knew the definition of greed

We sit here and think about the times that we spent
with the guy that always so true and content

He was honest, he was popular, a genuine guy
one that regardless of the trouble, would always standby

But although hes not here,
he'll have a spot in my heart
and for that reason alone
i know well never be apart.

Happy Birthday Andrew Eichen
