View from a train

View from a train
My days are reeling, passing
Like the view from a train
Try to catch a glimpse of something
Hope to catch my eye
And pray its not a dream
Coming back to reality
I only want to stay a moment
Keep me away if you can
The colours blur in the windows
I see lights moving
I see you fall away into distance
Goodbye I’m moving on
Don’t know where I am going
I have all I need in a song
Written by a poet
Watching the world pass away
Flying into the soul
All to soon it is gone
My days are reeling, passing
Like the view from a train

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
