Close by the door he passed to stand
as he took the class ring off her hand
all who were watching didnt dare speak
as a slient tear ran down his cheek
all through his mind, memories ran
of the times they laughed and walked hand in hand
but now her eyes looked very cold
he’d never have her again, never to hold
all were silent as he bent down near
to whisper ” I love you” in her ear
in touching her face, he started to cry
he put on his ” class ring” and wanted to die
and just as the wind began to blow,
they lowered her casket into the snow.

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,
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 that I’m thinking of him.”
But tomorrow comes and tommorow 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.
Pass this along to your friends.
It could make a difference.
The difference between doing all that you can or having regrets which may
stay with you forever.
Something I’ve learned -that it’s not what happens to people
that’s important. It’s what they do about it.
