Consider, if you will, my friend's poem! I think it is about you?!

Your words gripped the soul
forced me to think some more
said my shadow would be shed
my heart dropped to the floor.

Seems that chasm got wider
as broad as the deep blue sea.
Oh, but I'll still be watching you
in your attempts to shed me.

I saw the angst in your eyes
as you stepped "in air on trust"
but your giving into doubt
was the start of the end of us.

I too built a bridge, embe dded
deep in the rocks of the soul.
Trusting only in love, shared,
doubting not, deep and bold.

Visions you failed to explain
kept us drifting and suspended;
even beyond the horizon's view
of rainbows,  you transended.

I shall watch where you walk
wills and wishes are but sand.
When that chasm "is" narrowed
need only to reach for my hand.

Shed my shadow. Let tears cleanse.
Go seek your horizons at the ridge.
When those rainbows have been spent
remember ..."I Too Built A Bridge".

(Inspired by Patricia's "My Bridge of Creation")

UNCONDITIONAL Love I felt clearly ~
I like this poem, has you reading it a few times, to let it sink in...
I think it's filled with a deep depth of beauty and thought!
The lines gave the reader much to comprehend of love and surviving! Trust is the underlying thoughts here, I hope I am close...
and I do hope (in your time here at the den) you come to read my heartfelt touches of your spirit, I hope to touch.

I am not sure if you meant it this way, but it sounds like God speaking to a wandering soul, lovely work
Reviewed by Sandie May Angel-Joyce
There is a lot of sad feelings expressed in this poem. The meters and rhymes are perfect so this flows very well.

We all have friends and there are many different kinds of friends in our lives. This was a passing though one I suppose. Even then we have to go on to better and pass onto a nother life in this creative world. You can do it, it seems we all need to get a better life sometimes and cross bridges to get there.
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater
Spiritually sound, sturdy in structure, and a foothold on cross over this bridge is to know that many new opportunities well always, Glenda...and welcome to the den...Blessed Be.

Reviewed by David Delaney
Wonderful writing here Glenda I enjoyed every moment, I know some people who need to build a bridge. Well done.

Reviewed by Charlie
Great response... and that is just the kind of bridge that's built to last forever. Trust is truth, is it not? And THAT, will stand to the end of time. --Charlie

This is a strong writing... there is always a drift in relationships; yet we must learn to rebuild and gain strength... I enjoyed this. lindalaw
