The Train of Life

Postby ColinS » Fri Feb 05, 2016 4:43 pm

I was Honored to receive this and now I send it on to you my friends.....

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents,

And we believe they will always travel by our side.

However, at some station

Our parents will step down from the train,

Leaving us on this journey alone.

As time goes by,

Other people will board the train;

And they will be significant

i.e. Our siblings, friends, children,

And even the love of your life.

Many will step down

And leave a permanent vacuum.

Others will go so unnoticed

hat we don't realize

They vacated their seats.

This train ride will be full of joy,

Sorrow, fantasy, expectations,

Hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

Success consists of having a good relationship

With all passengers

Requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is:

We do not know at which station

We ourselves will step down.

So, we must live in the best way,

Love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.

It is important to do

This because when the time comes for us to step down

And leave our seat empty

We should leave behind beautiful memories

For those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life.

Reap success and give lots of love.

More importantly, thank God for the journey.

Lastly, I thank you

For being one of the passengers on my train.

(By the way, I am not planning to get off the train anytime soon

But if I do, just remember I am glad you were part of my journey.)
