The Train of Life:  
THIS IS VERY BEAUTIFUL
AND I AM HONORED TO HAVE RECEIVED IT.
 
 
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents,
and we believe they will always travel on our side.
 
However, at some station
our parents will step down from the train,
leaving us on this journey alone.
 
As time goes by,
other people will board the train;
and they will be significant
i.e. our siblings, friends, children,
and even the love of your life.
 
Many will step down
and leave a permanent vacuum.
 
Others will go so unnoticed
that we don’t realize
they 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 passengers
requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
 
The mystery to everyone is:
We do not know at which station
we ourselves will step down.
 
So, we must live in the best way,
love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.
 
It is important to do
this because when the time comes for us to step down
and leave our seats empty
we should leave behind beautiful memories
for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
 
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life.
Reap success and give lots of love.
 
Lastly, I thank you
for being one of the passengers on my train.
 
(By the way, I am not planning to get off the train anytime soon
but if I do, just remember I am glad you were part of my journey.)
“What is success? 
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate the beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a Twobit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded!”
