Take the time for a friend . . .


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 friend's 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.

If, 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-"
"eJim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

If you love someone, tell them.
Remember always to say what you mean.
Never be afraid to express yourself.
Take this opportunity to tell someone
what they mean to you.

Seize the day and have no regrets.

Most importantly, stay close to your friends and family,
for they have helped make you the person that you are today
and are what it's all about anyway.

Pass this along to your friends. Let it make a
difference in your day and theirs. The difference between
expressing love and having regrets is that the regrets may stay
around forever.

If you've received this it is because someone cares for
you and it means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.
If you're too busy to take the few minutes that it would take
right now to forward this to ten people, would it be the first time
you didn't or that little thing that would make a difference in your
relationships?
