The Bridge

They stand on the bridge in the dreamy moonlight
Full of love and happiness, with eyes shining bright
One year ago today, they met here one summer night
They felt the universe shift, it was love at first sight
He gets on bended knee, she lets out a squeal of delight
He sweetly says, "marry me and let me be your knight?
I promise to honor, cherish and always treat you right
You'll be the most beautiful bride ever dressed in white"
Before she can say 'yes', she awakes, damn that's not right!
She desperately tries to return to dreamland with all her might
Is this a premonition that her dreams will finally take flight?
She smiles and rereads his text "I request your presence on our bridge tonight"

    I'm happy this bridge did not go unused. Unused bridges can collapse under their own weight. They are created to span life's troubled times and are seasoned by the stress we place on them... Great read this morning.... Welcome to my day... Jake

    Oh wow... great monorhyme! I really loved the last few lines... a premonition of good things to come! I've had a premonition before (but it was of someone's death coming soon). Beautiful piece of writing!
