I love ya mamma Dec 07, Rating Lovely poem by: Sharon We used this poem in June for my uncle, it's so very lovely and the lady who did the readings from the funeral directors printed this off for anyone who wanted a copy, I changed the end line to read make haste to my reception and enjoy a drink for me. Oct 30, Rating Death of my dad perfect poem by: Anonymous My dad's passed away we saw this poem and my god it was perfect as he worked on the railway brought a tear to lots of eyes.
Sep 23, Rating Explanation of first line of last verse by: Trish I think the word 'except' here is used here as a verb - he cannot refuse the take the train as in the previous verses there is no deep regret at his leaving. It sounded odd to me too because he does seem to accept his death. It perfectly summed up reflections on joining those who had already passed and the belief we would meet again in the future and made death seem a less frightening experience and a less lonely journey as it felt she will never be on her own.
Several people asked afterwards about the poem. It has made the situation a lot easier to process thinking of it in these terms, so thank you to the poet. Jul 23, Rating Last Journey by: Chris Bateman The poem was so relevant to our brother David who was always train mad as from a very young age.
He had his own model railway in a purpose built building which backs onto the mainline on the Southern Network, also a active member of a Model Railway Club in Worthing. Or does he mean 'accept' - and if so, why? May 25, Rating Just perfect. He was a train man, he loved his trains.
Your poem is absolutely perfect to remember him by. I read it to his wife and she was completely impressed by how well it fit his passing. Share this Rating Title: Train to Heaven 7.

How wonderful of you to share something that your father wrote.. I'm wondering what the tune is to the song? Thoreau47 - Thank you, Jo. The tune was different for both singers. I think one might be given license to add their own It is a big Universe and the poet knows that possibilities are endless.
He cannot ask for more and he cannot report on less. Inbox x. Almost like a stained glass window. Being an engineer, my attention turned back to her and the screen as I tried to figure out what that was and how it came to be opened. Later Saturday, the surgeon returned and the pathology report was back.
He told me the good news I felt I already knew. We just needed to get me to eat; get my bowels to function; get me up and walking again; and then I could go home.
It would be a few more days. Monday morning the nurse that was with me for the prayer Friday was back, so I asked her about the pastor. Yes, she remembers her visit and comments on what a wonderful prayer it was. She assumed she was from my church. I made good progress through the next couple of days; eating, walking and pooping.
All of the other tests came back with good results. I was finally released to come home on Wednesday. I cried as they loaded me in the car — mostly from relief that I was able to leave the place by the front door. Recovery at home was slower than I had hoped. It was weeks before I could get in and out of bed by myself, or even sleep on my side.
I dutifully changed my gauze and even found an infection that was effectively treated. I recovered and went back to work.
I did go see the oncologist, and he told me that I would be the best appointment he would have all week. I was officially a cancer survivor. The surgeon and I finally got a chance to discuss the train to heaven. He said in his position he has to have great faith too. He was all smiles for the first time I had seen him — they had brought me back.
He was also quite impressed that I knew I was gone — no way should I have known that. An interesting point I picked up later: The guy that looks like my friend Don might have been his Dad. His Dad died unexpectedly during routine surgery when he was 52, same age as I was when I had the surgery. Don and his wife Lori had been praying for me all along. When I pray, I always like to have my prayer all thought through before I start — like I am doing it on stage or something. When my mind adds things or gets distracted, I get upset and then set about to start the prayer over.
One night after I had long since healed and was back to driving, I was sitting in the car out front of a take-out Chinese place waiting for my order. I thought it was a good time to say a prayer, and part way through got distracted. There have been many occasions when I have felt that I needed to tell this story, or part of it, to other people.
