The Train Journey of Joy and Simo

Joy:

Oh what a joyous day today,

I’m heading to the shops!

My big birthday is coming soon,

I’ll buy nice shoes and tops.

Simo:

I’ve lost my business through and through,

Today is full of grief.

My livelihood has disappeared,

I am in disbelief.

Joy:

I’ll take a break from driving now,

And catch the local train.

The town centre will see my face,

My money they will gain!

Simo:

My last journey to work today,

My train has just arrived.

I’ll go and sit next to this girl,

Who never stops to smile.

Joy:

I’m gazing through the old windows,

To look at new spring leaves.

I turn to see who’s next to me,

He’s crying as he grieves.

Simo:

“Excuse me, it’s a tough time now,

I’ll try to hold my tears.

I’ve lost my job and livelihood,

There’s so much pain and fears.”

Joy:

“I’m sorry to hear such sad news,

I know it’s tough for you.

I know exactly how you feel,

I’ve gone through hard times too.”

Simo:

“My job was part of my being,

It made me who I am.

I don’t know what the future holds,

I don’t have any plans.”

Joy:

“Two years ago I lost my job,

My house, and all my things.

Since then I’ve built a livelihood,

Trust God, one day you’ll sing.”

Simo:

“Thank you for kind and gentle words,

You give lovely advice.

The weather’s beautiful today,

You going somewhere nice?”

Joy:

“My birthday’s coming very soon,

I’m shopping for the day.

I’ll invite you to my party,

It’s this week Saturday.”

Simo:

I didn’t know whether to go,

As sadness still ensued.

I did go, and then realised,

My wife, I would pursue.

Conclusion:

Two years had passed within their lives,

They gladly tied the knot.

My friends, stay strong, tough times won’t last,

T’s will cross; i’s with dots.
