Treasure Island

Fiona Davidson

(From beyond time)

Bridges Crossed

Never close those doors
Before you're sure it's right
Always look to the future
But don't forget the past

Each bridge you cross over
Must be left not destroyed
You never really know when
Retreat will be all you have

Look back over your shoulder
Now and then to reassure yourself
You made the choices that are right
For the walk in life you need now

Never let go of memories
For they may be all you hold

    what can i say, i had to close my eyes to stop the tears. i guess sometimes we have to remember how fortunate we are, we carry with us forever, moments that most people will never have. closing my eyes again, steve (Report) Reply

    To have the choice of retreat... I agree to leave the bridges where they are...because if things are not right, go back across and start again...the past will always hold the memories...but the future....could hold alot more

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
