Yes, I’m all grown up now, but the bell still rings for me. And no matter how many times I watch the Polar Express, I still cry. I guess, I’m just a child at heart. For me, one of the most memorable moments comes when The Conductor tells the little boy, “The thing about trains… it doesn’t matter where they’re going. What matters is deciding to get on.” The lesson is, life is short. Don’t be afraid to dream a little! Don’t be afraid to take that journey into the unknown! Don’t be afraid to BELIEVE!
– J. Ela
Snow is softly falling.
Dreams are calling,
Like bells in the distance.
We were dreamers,
Not so long ago.
But one by one, we
All had to grow up.
When it seems the magic slipped away…
We find it all again on Christmas Day.
Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that’s playing.
There’s no time to waste,
There so much to celebrate.
Believe in what you feel inside,
Give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need, if you just believe.
Trains move quickly
To their journey’s end.
Are where we begin again.
Ships go sailing,
Far across the sea.
To get where they need to be.
When it seems that we have lost our way…
We find ourselves again on Christmas Day.
