Around the Corner

Around the Corner 
Author Unknown

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
Don’t 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 most importantly, stay close to your friends and family,
for they have helped make you the person that you are today
