    No man is worth your tears, and when you find the man who is, he'll never make you cry

    Around The Corner I have A Friend
    Thanks to my friend, Jan aka Cajun Caper for the following reality check

    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.
    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.

    If you love someone, tell them. Tell them just how
    much they mean to you. Never be afraid to
    express yourself. Seize the day and have no regrets.
