Life is like a train. Everyone is in the ""train of life"" which goes from station to station, allowing people to get in and out. One is fast and quickly comes to an end, while the other makes a longer trip. The train is "controlled" by a "driver" who guides people to their proper destination. One of the poems in this book is about the "train of life," and this had been chosen as the title of this collection of poems. This collection offers a glimpse of a person's journey regarding the Christian faith or the "train." Sometimes, it is full of doubt and uncertainty, but it is also filled with comfort, hope, love and trust. In 2000, Hans Cieremans (1949) first wrote a Christian poem for his seriously ill sister. After her death, he wrote more and he even posted often on the gedichtensite.nl site. Many of his poems were warmly received and many also earned positive reactions from readers. In 2007, he was named ""Poet of the Year"" by gedichtensite.nl. His poems have been brought together in this volume. Hans Cieremans is married. He also has three grown children and he's a teacher.
