Beneath A Bridge

Beneath A Bridge


Life’s ebbing current draws us down,

The waters of time it seems,
Poetic is each bridge we pass,
Beneath on gentle streams.

At times we pass with just a nod,
A smile or soft hello,
Once in occasions often rare,
The bridge we seek to know.

Such a bridge I found one day,
With need I lingered near,
The comfort of its strength I loved,
My moments there are dear.

And we must part and I move on,
The link consumes my mind,
My soul pines often to return,
To the bridge I left behind.

I’m just a bubbling stream below,
This bridge above my grasp,
I live in only dreams of love,
Each time I’m drifting pass.
