Today is Like a Little Bridge



OctPoWriMo day 14: What is on the bridge between yesterday and tomorrow?


Today is like a little bridge
That spans the gap between
The misted vale of morrow
And what has already been

Beneath this little bridge that spans
What was to what will be
Abide the everlasting hands
Of God, for you and me

What was will not return again
And who knows what will be?
Today bridges the gap twixt Past
And opportunity

Yesterday and tomorrow are
Time’s after and before
Today is like a bridge between
Each far and phantom shore

Today spans from regret to hope
The scaffold of God's grace
Bridges the gap to what remains
From what none can erase

  3. This is sheer brilliance Janet.

    "Today spans from regret to hope
    The scaffold of God's grace
    Bridges the gap to what remains
    From what none can erase"
