Thoughts of an Orphan
A Vanished Friend 8/22/2011
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 swift and a 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 him"... "

Just to show that I'm thinking of him".

But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,

and distance between us grows.

Around the corner!- yet miles away,

"here's a telegram sir" "He died today".

And that's what we get and deserve in the end.

Around the corner, a vanished friend.

We’re talking about when we met and you say it was easier to fall for me thinking (I'll remember this pause) it was likely I’d be dead by now.
