"A Bridge Forward...Lies Ahead For You"...

I don't know you...or even all you've been through.

Just know that today...when you got up...you had a choice...

To move ahead...as I know you can do...or listen to the pain of your "inner-voice".

Each one is more then easy for you to follow in your brain...

Somethings that other folks have been through...would make me totally go insane.

I can not speak to you...

Of that which...you have been through.

But...there is one thing I can truly say...

There is "A Bridge Forward" for you today!

You can be strong...and you can think new things again...

It doesn't mean...that you are over what hurts you most, my friend!

It is just that you have been able to make one more step...out to fulfill your own destiny...

Do not ever feel ashamed to live...it comes by naturally.

It is nothing you have control over for the most part...

Your body was built to live...even though it may secretly guard your heart.

Do not forget what hurts you...yet do not let it hold you back in despair...

Look around you...You are still living...Didn't you just take your next breath of fresh air?

Hurt in life...just happens...Sorry...I Don't have the answer why?

Our guts and mind are set to react to such things...Our eyes know when to cry.

But let me tell you this...though I am an expert of very few things...

Nothing in life always happens for the bad...be on the alert for what joy life brings.

It was never written...that someone...has to stay down...

Get up...Stand up...Look at the World that is all around.

There is life still going on...though you think it may have all died...

No One but yourself has felt these things...No one else has ever cried?

It is in you to keep living...though you hurt...it is just what human beings do...

After all...you can't deny the fact that you're still living...Look in the mirror...Have you turned "Blue"?

It is a simple fact of life that you are still part of the living...here with the rest of us...

Find a way to take "A Bridge Forward"...even if it makes you angry enough to want to cuss.

There is a way forward...there is a path that you can begin...

You can start with "A Bridge Forward"...and continue to live once again.

This is not just a painted image for you...let me go a little further on with this...and explain...

There is a process to taking "A Bridge Forward"...I'm not just using this phrase as some cute "refrain".

You have to have a plan in place to begin across the huge gorge...to make it across...

It doesn't matter what you bring with you on this plan...what you take on your journey is your gain...and not a loss.

To go across the huge gap...where you might not even see an end in sight...

Takes careful engineering...You have to set the support structure just right.

The piers have to be in place to carry the heavy load...

There is no telling just how much weight will be carried across this Bridge's new road...

Perhaps...it will even have the added weight of a frieght train...

You can start to build this Bridge again...it can stay hidden within your own brain.

Begin to construct a way...above the valley below...

Just make sure you have the proper foundation in place...that is most important...as you know!

Then begin to cross over the chasm...You are now on your way to moving forward to what lies ahead.

Remember this one thing if nothing else...You are still part of the living...and not part of the dead!

Each day is a gift of life...though there is no reason for you to forget what hurts the most in your own life..

"A Bridge Forward...Lies Ahead For You"...it will make a way over the canyon for you...It will move you on...further past the strife.

I see you starting your way...I know you will continue to live your life...and stay strong...

Get Ready to set foot out on your Bridge...Get ready to run the race that's very long.

So much in the World to stop us from going forward...but yet here we both sit upon our own Bridge...

Come Along With Me In Our Journey Across, My Friend...Together We Are Going To Make It Over To The Other Ridge!
