Crossing that bridge

  The heart is  a bridge that we must cross
             To arrive on the side  where love abides
On that journey many get lost
And are swept away  to  the sea's  surging tide
   

The bridge of love  will never fall
     Even when the waters of hate rush in
Over troubled waters the bridge stands tall
Secure in the power of love within


      But there is a bridge that we all must cross
  To get to the other side of the unknown
       Upon that bridge many souls are  lost
  There is no return once the spirit has flown

       If you should cross over to the other side
                       Be sure it's the side  where love abides
                                                        ~~
