Last Train from Platform One

IMG_0946

There is no barrier, just belief

You cannot buy a ticket

The man who smiles back at you

From the window wears a mirror

——-

But her smile is better than yours

——-

To travel on this train

You have to believe you can

You have to believe in trains

You have to believe…

——-

That the train is greater than your shoes

——-

But not in fantasy

And not in make-believe

And not in anything

Which others tell you

——-

For the short slope is for your bare feet alone

——-

It’s midwinter and the train is coming

The train is always coming

The train is arriving now

The train…is

——-

Waiting on platform One

——-
