Bridges of Life

Bridges of Life


We risk in life and suffer loss

Even to find defeat

If when we burn each bridge we cross

Or turn from friends we meet


A bridge can lead to make a friend

Can lead to meet a foe

Can lead us to the rainbows end

Depending how we go


Exploring life with this is view

Keeping an open mind

Each day can start with something new

When eyes no more are blind


I too walked on a bridge one day

Passed water none could ford

I knew I’d found The Perfect Way

In Jesus Christ The Lord


Thinking to walk or there remain

I thought to stay a while

But saw my thoughts were all in vain

When Christ began to’ smile


I saw The Truth I heard His voice

I knew and understood

So made The Bridge my lifelong choice

That still remains me good


I cross each day and every night

Christ’s teachings to amass

I see the end has brilliant light

Across the sea of glass


Its best not burn our bridges down

But cross them one by one

Perhaps you too; may find life’s crown

Through Christ God’s risen Son.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
