Passing Through: A Poem

Updated on April 6, 2012
Source

No body to slow you

on your travels along the rail

Softly floating to and fro

whispering your exciting tale.


No one to suspect

you’re even in our midst

A cool breath on the air

A sweet tender kiss.


No trials to ponder

tribulations are for yesterday

Bright and light, you traverse

You pass me on your way.


No need to worry

you're showing just a glow

I know that you were here

Free as the wind does blow.

      Gypsy, thank you! I should have made it longer, but most of the time, my mind tells me when to stop and I have to obey!

      This could easily be written about most people rather than the train...just a glimpse we are to most people, passing by, barely a whisper that we were there at all....I really like this. Great job my friend! Have a wonderful weekend.
