meaning of life

Nasty Christians Need To Learn

Thought provoking verse

View original post



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 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


Around the corner, a

vanished friend
