On The Bridge


Walking across the bridge alone
On a cold winters night
Looking at the dark fast river
It's such an inviting sight
We used to walk this way together
Always hand in hand
We were linked in a way
Only lovers understand
But now I do this walk alone
With only memories of days past
I thought we were so happy
But friends said it wouldn't last
They said you were too good for me
And maybe I am too old
But I put it down to jealousy
And to their theories I wasn't sold
Now you've left me for another man
Who's younger and richer too
And now I have been cast aside
Like an old ill fitting shoe
So here I am upon the bridge
While the river calls to me
By the time they find my body
It should be out into the sea
Goodbye my love I wish you well
With the new love in your life
I hope happiness will follow you
My young and beautiful wife.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
