I liked the poem so I will share, but I am not emailing all my friends with it. -- I love all my friends old and new and do a damn good job staying in touch with them...no stupid chain letter can guilt me into sending them spam!
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
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
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
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And distance between us grows
Around the corner, yet miles away,
'Here's a telegram sir,' 'Jim died
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
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 must send this on in 3 hours after reading the letter to 10 other
people. If you do this, you will receive unbelievably good luck.
*NOTE* the more people that you send this to, the better luck you will
have. SMILE, even through your tears!!!!!
