"Bridge"

A deluge has passed beneath our bridge
But it still stands strong between us
These days neither of us crosses to the other side
In this shadow after the storm

We sit and calmly wait in the residue
For one to cross over to the other
Collecting the toll at our respective ends
Allowing others to pass ahead

One day apprehension will subside
We will walk toward the other side
Meeting midway on our bridge
In the place we started from
