I had not very long ago one of my strangest dreams
it was so very real and was about my life it seems
I was there sitting on a bench there on a railway station
and lots of people they walked by in many a direction
right next to me were my best friends and people close to me
they looked just like they did before as far as I could see
they didn't stay there all the time but were replaced by new
just like it's in reality long lasting friends are few
walking by so very near were some that had been close
and further and yet further on were people not so close
once in a while there on the bench one came to say hello
and one of them right there with me would say I have to go
they took a train or came with one as they do in real life
and friends you have they come and go both husbond and so wife
some came to shake the hand with me and some just waved you see
some showed me an unfriendly face they were my enemy
what I liked best just sitting there were those with a great smile
that made me happy and so pleased and lasted a long while
I do suppose a railway station mirrors the real life
where people come and people go with happiness or strife
I newer will forget that dream it really made me think
that even though we do have friends they may go in a wink
there's nothing else that we can do but live the life we do
be honest to your friends and hope that they'll be honest also to you
