~Bridge of Love~


Hold a memory ... touch a photograph ...
this love still remains ... golden engraved epitaph.

A bridge to be built ... to cross to the other side ...
on either shore an angel waits ... arms open wide.

To kiss sweet fate ... to dance with destiny,
On a wing and prayer ... a soul to set free.

Winds of change ... sands of time,
hear this prayer ... read this rhyme.

Always here ... see me where in I stand ...
hand held out ... heart in hand.


Janet Marie

for DeVante, with love always



 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Oh, this poem is absolutely lovely!  Very poignant and hauntingly sad, and exquisitely  beautiful.  Wonderful imagery!

I want to keep a copy, to enjoy for years to come.  I'll be sure to keep your name with it.
