    It in poem form - My girlfriend sent it to me -

    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.


    Because when you decide that it 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 the person that you are today.
