Let’s build a bridge together,
That arches through the years,
Revisiting in memory,
Dreams we both held dear.
A time when we built castles,
As we walked in the rain,
Sketching dreams in vapor,
On life’s window pane.
Our fancies lived a moment,
The bubbles soon would burst,
Each would soon face heartache,
Each would experience hurt.
Can we bridge the distance?
Can a way be found,
To breach the years between us?
Can we find common ground?
A time that we remember,
Like it was yesterday,
Could link us to the present
If love could have its way.

  1. This poem was written for my dearest and best friend in all the world this side of paradise. This cherished friendship was lost to me for a while but in time God restored it. Thank You Lord!!

  2. Belinda Serpes Willard:
    That is a beautiful poem Myra, it filled my eyes with fog or was it tears? I loved the line "sketching dreams in Vapour
    on life's window pane"
    what am I saying I loved everything.I loved it thank you.
