The BridgeThe Bridge 6/8/08The Bridge by shep4life
The image is so clear in my mind.
The sounds around faded to
a shadow of a whisper.
Your face the only color in
a world of black and white.
I remember the exact time
our connection solidified.
The chasm was looming and
vast before our distant eyes.
Day after day we built the Bridge.
Slowly we gave in to the obvious.
You gave yourself to me.
Two lost souls planted firmly
on the Bridge of destiny.
As we rose, intertwined, towards
the inky night.
We formed a helix of comfort and trust above
our Bridge of chaos, mistakes, and triumph.
We made a promise to always be true.
I kept mine.
The day the Bridge began to crumble
I could have lost my mind.
You would not look at me as
the rain pounded our resolve.
I asked a simple question waiting for
the reply, "What happened to forever?"
The thunder rolled through our hearts
and the silence was a deafening answer.
As we parted, the clouds broke open
to reveal the waning sun....trying
one last time to overpower the storm.
