I will sit here
on this sinking bridge
while it gives way
to the water
of a thousand memories.

Drown out my tears
in this place.
And let me sink
for a while,
don’t save me.

pull me under…
A laugh
an embrace.
Tender words
from another time
and another place.
A smile
that was once
my whole world.

I will swim to shore
soon enough.
But tonight
I need to stay
Until the bridge
has fallen to the depths
of these waters.
