Dear, my heart is in pain
Since you took the night train,
I yelled out day and night,
Cried for you to come back,
Even asked the Lord why
We could not both survive,
Why he did not let me
Leave with you my lady;

Only the noisy steel
Of each single cold wheel
Is giving an answer:
It’s over! It’s over!
But I still can’t believe
That my pain can’t be eased,
That I will fight the cold
Without your smile to hold;

You were calling me Dear
When they called your name near,
You should pay for others,
For some of your brothers,
You my one, my Springtime,
My Moon and my Sunshine,
I cannot help crying,
Without you I’m sinking;

The desperate mind. Source: Internet images

The desperate mind. Source: Internet images

How can I rise again,
Can they, lords of this rain,
Poor men amongst the poor,
Show the way to that door…
Your train is far away,
Too far from the next day,
Only another train
Can heal me from my pain.







My name is Théodore René Ndebi, born in Cameroon. I graduated in Banking Management. But what really makes me proud and happy is WRITING !!!!! I started writing around 1990. I write the most I can.

I mostly write for children’s future. As a child, I had always dreamt of a world where poor children and orphans could be happy as well. I have many unpublished collections in French: Chaque Jour Un Poème, Rêve D’un Soir, La Missive Du Petit Prince, Suis-Je Assez Bien Pour Toi… I’m also author of unpublished novels in French (Cierge Noir, Plus Violent Que L’amour, Les Fruits De La Tempête…). My first published novel; THE LAST GHOST/Son Of Struggle got published in 2013 by AuthorhouseUK; it appears in the LOS Angeles Times Festival Of Books Catalogue 2014 Page 8. Available online @ Amazon, Kindle, AuthorhouseUK, Barnes & Noble, Indie. I wrote numerous award winning texts. I am a Book Reviewer and Translator. I am a member of OneAfricanChild since 2013 and Co-Founder of Le Salon Du Livre Yaounde-Cameroon.
