All Is Not Aboard

The whistle is loud and clear

While the smoke rises from afar

The train of my dreams

Is always on time

For a stopover in my thoughts

It waits and waits for long

For me to board over

But figuring out

The ways to let it happen

May cause a train wreck

To my dearly dreams

    What a fabulous poem and so very true Hammad. Let’s keep our dreams alive and our eyes on that train!

    I like this one … weaving dreams and trains! Yet none of us are going too far just now so we can only dream of boarding that train or plane 🙂

      Yes, even getting a chance to just board over would be a miracle 🙂

    Only in your dreams I fear. The bloody train is never on time when you need it to be!

    It’s never a straight forward journey to achieving our dreams, is it? Nicely written.
