Yesterday, we have shared an upcoming Roger Miller tribute album. Today, I found this beautiful song. “Train of Life” is one of Roger Miller’s songs. I adore how the song articulates life and death and I wanted to share it with you.
I’m tired of havin’ no future livin’ on things that I’ve done
I’m tired of sittin’ on the side of track just a watchin’ the mainline run
Train train oh let me ride don’t leave me train of life train train.
For Us, the Train of Life…
…starts at birth, when we board the train and meet our parents. At that same moment, we believe they will always travel by our side. As time passes, other important people will board the train in the form of our siblings, friends, our own children, and even someone you will love.
However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this trip alone. Others will step down over the course of the trip too and leave a permanent space. Some, however, will go so ignored that we do not recognize they emptied their seats.
This train ride will be full of delight, grief, fantasy, hopes, hellos, goodbyes, and sendoffs. What is unknown to everyone is that we do not know at which station we, ourselves, will step down. As what Mr. Miller kept on pleading in the song. He begs for the train of life to not leave him and just have a ride.
What Does The Song Communicate?
“Train of Life” transfers why many hang to the core of divine belief. It is not always as a blind devotion, but as a way to remove dread, and boost the spirit in life. The song then teaches us to make the most out of our train ride as meaningful as it can be. Let us make time for everyone stepping down the train trip by providing the care and direction they need. And when the last part comes, to allow the person to stand on the platform and wave the train of life goodbye. In addition, to offer support to those on the train to enjoy the beautiful memoirs along the journey to be able to say goodbye freely as the train of life continues its journey.
