To Keep In Touch


My friends are scattered here and there ... It does not really
matter ... While we can keep in touch by mail ... Or other
means to chatter ... As long as I have filed away ... Each name
and each address ... Or where to call by telephone ... And wish
them happiness ... Of course I wish that every day ... No mat-
ter what the weather ... My friends could say hello to me ...
And we could be together ... But just a little greeting card ...
Will turn that happy trick ... It need not be a telegram ... Or
any message quick ... Whatever and however is ... The mes-
sage I may send them ... It matters only as I try ... to cheer
and to befriend them.
