The Bridge (2)

The Bridge

I wander alone down this road
My cart has one wheel that wobbles
What belongs to me is what you see
Don’t try to take it from me or squabble

Coming to a broken concrete bridge
The only way to get past the river
Up ahead a clown jumped up and down
Showing it’s safe but the river made him shiver

What do you see when you read
Two men at their end of their future
I see what happens when two men don’t heed
Who have nothing to show for their adventures

Losing Your Fear

She flew past my wide open eyes
I grabbed her train in the clear blue sky
Hanging on for my life circling wide
Starting her descent I thought I would die

Losing your fear to fly like you did
Jumping from that height I would have shit
But you overcame your fear and it melted
Knowing your OK I’m ready to get belted

Waterspout

Caught in a waterspout; plucked from our boat
Going up in a spiral, afraid with little hope
Dropped us in the clouds, falling back to the water
Won’t consider jumping, it looks like an adventure

Stepping up to the highest cloud above
We were surprised to see a pair of doves
Only a step away to reach the tallest mountains
We made cloud sculptures then sold at a bargain
