The Bridge


“The Bridge”

We stood by the bridge
hand in hand
holding each other
glaring across the other land
of what could have been,
should have been,
and what would have been.


We stand on the bridge
hand on hand
fearless.
We can withstand any challenge
as long as we are together

You crossed the bridge
hand out of hand
with a small lighter like a Kendrick fan
you dropped it
the flames spread and
I ran to safety….
to you through fire….
free falling
Just to hold your hand again
faintly hearing a voice intensifying
greatly saying
“Hold on! We are almost there!
don’t let go and don’t be scared!”

I didn’t… I was well prepared.
