Just Around The Corner


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 swift and a terrible race;
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.


He rang mine, 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.
Never be afraid to express yourself.

Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you,
Because when you decide that it is the right time ...
It might be too late.


Seize the day and never have regrets.
And most importantly,
Stay close to your friends and family,
For they helped make you the person that you are today.
