Note Left to girl on a Train

Do you think I’am someone famous
Or maybe just a fool
An object of your passion
Or a stranded helpless tool?
Someone pouring out with riches
But emptied out of love
With a burning desire for living
Just needs a little shove
Do you think that I looked lonely
I suppose we all need more friends
It’s funny how the search for love
Is a search that never ends
I wished that you were like a child
And rambled up to me
I wish I too was a child innocent and free
I wish you could feel desire
Like the desire that en-lights my mind
I wish I could leave maturity
Miles and miles behind
I cant say I know you
But I’d sure like to try
To reach those dark secrets
Locked up inside your mind
To find out what your thinking
What stories I would find
Shut away in the caverns
And valleys of your mind
So fair-well until the next time
Our paths converge and meet
You might just think of this poem
Scribbled on this sheet
You might just skip along
Innocent and free
and tell me of those stories
For the rest of Eternity.

Note Left to girl on a Train by 


In 1987 I was in college in Dublin and taking the train home some weekends this beautiful girl kept looking at me and I suppose I returned the compliment but neither had the courage and I was certainly too shy to move it to the next phase but just before i got off the train I passed her table and dropped this poem I just wrote( life was romantic back then) in her hand before red faced running off. I never met her again but live in hope.

    She may possibly be already searching for you.
    Pleasure to read you Tim :)
