The train

The train of life is passing through the station.
Stand well back from the platform’s edge.
Be careful not to leave your baggage behind,
Perhaps the next train will stop you can alight.
Perhaps the next train will stop and 
From it will emerge a friend.
The train of life is due on platform three.
Please do not board the train if you do not intend to travel.
And at each station as the train is paused, 
The passengers gaze through the windows and glimpse 
In passing a scene from another life.
The train of life is delayed, please listen for further announcements.
And as the last goodbyes are called through closing doors,
Another scene has passed, and is complete.
The time together is now gone, and cannot be recaptured.
The train of life will be fifteen minutes late, we apologise for the delay.
