Our Love Train

Our Love Train

2 mins 628 2 mins 628

I love trains

And I loved them more the other day

As we sat beside each other in the railway station

Waiting to return to our respective hometowns

To let our families know about our love...


I love trains

And I loved them more the other day

Because trains mark the completion of a family's journey to me...

A man and woman start their journey on feet

Wanting their hands and feet to be in rhythm

Wanting a slow march of time as opposed to their raging passion of love...

Gradually, the man and woman graduate to bikes and cars

Wanting to reach destinations faster

Love does not flow like a breeze anymore

Love turns into a cyclone with dates and dinners and vacations...

Then, the man and woman graduate to buses

Wanting to feel proud of their partners in public

Wanting to maintain heavy purses, as the home is about to expand.

And then, the man and woman finally turn to trains

Wanting to set out on a long journey of understanding

Wanting to accommodate the entire family...


As we sat beside each other the other day

As freight trains and passenger trains sped behind us

I felt that our love had already started the train journey

I agree that a huge family is not yet in the picture

But haven't we already set out on a journey of understanding?

Maybe we do not exchange as many romantic phrases as earlier

Maybe I do not hold your hand as frequent as earlier

The beauty lies in the fact that love has not reduced a bit

It has simply entered the secure zone

Where it has realized that love-lines and hand-holds are no longer necessary...

May distances come, may silences come

The train will continue on its track

Because it knows very well that though we have matured

You and I are still childish and passionate enough

To set out on a long walk any day.
