    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, the 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, we were younger then,

    And now we are busy  ,tired men .

    Tired of playing foolish game,

    Tired of trying to make a name.

    ‘ Tomorrow ‘ I say ‘I will call on Jim’

    ‘just to show that I am 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 is 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 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 a person that you are today.
