Upon a Bridge

Updated on August 25, 2017

Upon a bridge of loneliness and doubt

Across a river flowing to the sea

A mirror of a voice sings out to me

Some light refusing ever to go out


It sings of tears and Joys of long ago

Of heartbeats which I thought would never pass

The truth of dreams shear splendor would amass

One wonders now if it was truly so


My mind a silent chorus of refrain

Still cannot grasp the meaning of it all

There locked inside some distant prison wall

With only shadows’ murmurs to explain


The voice the song a freshness in the air

A promised hope of path I always knew

The one upon the bridge once knew it too

This river bound for sea would take me there

      A bit of sadness within the verses, but still beautifully expressed.

      The past can be extremely clear when we look upon it from a different point of view. Very nicely done.

      Imagery, metaphors and word pictures are fresh like dew drops on rose petal.
