Love Train (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



As I was in London, I stood in the St. Pancras International Train Station, met with the concrete creation of my abstract thoughts. For 28 years, I stood in contemplation, in something in my mind that was just like this station.  Many trains, many destinations, many distractions, yet only one train led back to you. I had been so distracted by the cost of my train ticket and all the thousands of people lost, like me, that I almost missed the love train. I almost lost you. I almost gave up on us. At "that" time, I was missing the love inside me that could fuel me to act. But I have it now, so I finally decided to get outside of my head and contact you. When I called and told you I was coming back to you, all that I loved, I could hear the excitement, still, in your voice. So, I had to act for us. The “other” trains I traveled had taken me away from you for good purpose but had also brought me back with that same purpose. I was ready to leave the station and get on the love train, to you.

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
