The Train of Life

Life is like a journey on a train, with its stations,

Change of routes, differing scenes, and accidents!

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents,

And we believed they would always travel at our side.

However, at some station down the line our parents stepped off,

Leaving the train and us alone to continue on our own.

As time passed, other people boarded the train;

And they were significant: siblings, friends, children,

And even the Love of our life.

Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.

Others will go so unnoticed that we didn’t realize

That they had 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 the

Passengers … requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: we don’t know at which station

We ourselves will be asked to step off. So we must live

In the best way – Love, forgive, and offer the best of whom

We are. It is important to do this, because when the time

Comes for us to exit, leaving our seat empty, we should

Leave behind beautiful memories for those who will

Continue riding the train of life without us.

I wish you a joyful journey for the remaining years on

Your train of life. Reap success, give lots of love, and

Be happy. More importantly, be thankful for your journey!

Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers

On my train.
