Timothy's Bridge

You built a bridge 
We met in the middle
It seems we went nowhere

Perhaps if I crossed over
Lived in your world
Maybe then I could see

Eat your food
Drink your thoughts
Really see what you see

You accept my invitation
Cross the bridge to my side
Your heart open wide


The next thing you know
Other people would flow
Going to and fro

A bridge to somewhere 
A route to become friends
People are people at both ends

    That is so true. There are people at both ends. We all have minds, we all have hearts and we all have souls. maybe we could all be friends if we gave eachother a chance.... Thanks for sharing....... Lucilla

    When Christ returns this will be the new reality. In the meantime we can do our best to spread his love.

    "Like a bridge over troubled water, I'll lay me down" Do you remember the song? Lovely write, here. I'm glad you called it Timothy's bridge. He is so thoughtful. Your poems never cease to amaze me, Richard. You write in so many different styles and so many different topics. Fantastic.

    I don't know how to express how I feel right now - I am touched that I once again inspired you - this is really a fantastic piece! "people are people at both ends"... that should be some profound quote said by someone famous! I'm faving this, not simply because it's about me, but the words themselves are something very close to how I actually feel. Open-minded is something I always strive for (though I don't always achieve that and get stuck in place). Absolutely love this!
