Love Train

"How much will my ticket cost?" I asked the agent at the counter.

"Your ticket is free.  You can't buy love," she answered.

"What about my bags?"

"Sorry, we don't allow any baggage on the love train."

"How long will it take to reach my destination?"

"A lifetime."

"How will I know when I'm there?"

"The love train is different from anything you've ever experienced and the quality of your adventure depends on your willingness to share with the passenger sitting next to you.  Hold hands.  Look out the window.  Engage in conversation.  Share your hopes and dreams.

There will be a stop along the way and one of you will need to depart.  If you are asked to leave first, be sure to leave enough great memories for the other passenger to go on without you.  And if the other passenger exits before it's your time, remember this: the separation is only temporary.  Your love will be waiting for you when you reach your final destination.  Your love will be the first one to greet you when the ride is over.  Don't be surprised when you hear Angels singing and fireworks lighting up the heavens above.

You better hurry.  It's final boarding call and the other passenger is waiting for you.  Are you ready to board the love train?"
