At The Edge

by: Shannon Coleman (floweroflife)

I can only build the bridge...

You must have the courage to cross it.

The distance is vast

the steps uncertain.

The first step is always the hardest

two and three and four.

Don't look down, look at me!!

My eyes, my heart, my hand

stretch to meet you in the middle

and yet you look away!

You see an illusion before you

boards beneath your feet start to split

and crumble before your eyes.

Yet my boards are strong and unchanged

my hand still welcoming yours.

Your hesitation is understandable

for you do not yet know

that the hand that reaches for you

is your own.

The mist is rising

your face fades into the distance.

Tomorrow we will meet again

you at the edge of the bridge

me on the other side

inviting you to cross, to trust.

The bridges foundation is strong

and unwavering, like my love for you.

So I will meet you again

at the edge of the bridge

until the face you see

across the vast expanse

you realize as your own.
