The Bridge

by Luminita Suse

I know
you are building a stone bridge
from the other river bank
towards me

everybody talks and talks about it
some do the cross sign
some do not believe
many despair

but it cannot be seen from here
and I am eager to catch a glimpse
so, I will set up a scaffold
for a bridge of my own thoughts

hopefully we will meet halfway
and secure our constructions
on a shared pillar

and if we continue wandering
you dividing the waters
and I reaching the other side

I will start another bridge in my turn
for those that still believe in you
