HAVE YOU CALLED A FRIEND TODAY???


Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by, and the weeks rush on,
And before I know it a year has 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 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 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'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, Never have regrets...
Most importantly stay close to your friends and
family, for they have helped make you the person you are today.

Isn't it funny how the Spirit places things on our heart and then reitterates it? It puts a comfortable smile on my face. Hope you are well, Shane.
Hugs!

Miranda, yes Carpe Diem! This applies to all our relationships, doesn't it? We think we;ll live forever and vise versa. But life is shorter than we think. We have to remember that. Thanks, my friend!

Lil, Hola Bonita! It does make you think, does't it? Life is too short, we must say and tell that we care. We must not assume they know, they may need to hear, right???
