Trains-poem

Who  to take aboard?
It’s up to you.
Who do you leave behind?
It’s up to you.
The Thai negotiation phrase
Can one travel not by trains
But in the tracks of the mind?
It’s up to you
You said
And i jumped
Nearly crushed by the weight
Of another train.
You needed a train to carry your baggage
And i was travelling light
Leaving lots behind
Walking into a sunset
A charlie chaplin Vagabond
Not carrying too much
Just a battered heart
Waiting for a night train
Anywhere
Out of here
Where you stand  on a platform
Watching me disappear
Sad and glad at the same time
You needed the orient express
To  sit relaxing watching the view
As a luxury train carries you
And your load
While i walk humming a song
down the  long winding
country road .
