    A Poem to Remind us to Keep in Touch with Family and Friends.

    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.

    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.

    And most importantly, stay close to your friends

    and family, for they have helped

    make you the person that you are today.

    after I got this in an email from a friend I hunted up my old address book from a decade or more and started printing this peom out to snail mail to the people that I haven't talked to for so long I don't know if they are online or not. I have been online since 1998 . And i emailed it all the friends and family I do have email addresses for.
