"Some Things"

The train won't leave the station,

Until someone is aboard,

The train can't keep going,

Without someone shoveling the coal,

Everyone has a place,

Some things come and go,

Some things seem permanent,

But all things end.


Don't forget,

When you stop,

Someone else has to start,

Don't forget,

Everyone has to be replaced,

For better or for worse,

Some steps cannot be retraced.


Don't think that one person alone,

Can run the entire show,

The world doesn't spin because of him or her,

The world will spin without you or me,

But you still have to try,

To be someone else's world.
