Around the Corner I Have a Frined


Around the corner I have a friend
 In this great city that has no end,
             Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
             And before I know it, a year is gone
             And I never see my old friends face
             For life is a swift and terrible race,
             He knows I like him just as well,
             As in the days when I rang his bell.
             And he rang mine but we were younger then.
            And now we are busy, tired men.
             Tired of playing a foolish game
             Tired of trying to make a name
             Tomorrow I say! ‘I will call on Jim
             Just to show that I’m thinking of him.’
             But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
             And distance between us grows and grows
             Around the corner, yet miles away,
             Here’s a telegram sir,’ ‘Jim died today..’
             And that’s what we get and deserve in the end
             Around the corner, a vanished friend.
             Remember to always say what you mean.
             If you  love someone, tell them.
             Because  when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.
             Seize the day. Never have regrets.
             And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they have
             helped make you the person that you are today.  You
