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.

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
