    the little bridge


    please don't underestimate
    my words...i walked the
    path a short while, it's true
    but it was the little bridge
    that filled in the gaps for me
    whenever i look back on (my life) this tragedy

    yes, there have been great times
    i've met great people
    even done some great things
    but it was the little bridge in my
    life that truly showed me what "greatness" brings

    over valleys, over water,
    over rails, it was always the
    little bridge that helped me prevail

    and i had to grow older before
    i'd learn, and if i could hold
    her one more time
    my heart would burn

    and i'd even take just one day
    to walk that path again...
    because it was the little bridge
    that kept me sane

    well spoken, poet.

    through experience, we learn--over time--that it's not the great things we achieve that make us believe in the miracle of love and happiness and everyday blessings that keep us SANE...it's the small things...the little bridges
