The Bridge That Was Built For Me

You told me one night you had conquered the rift
And if I looked outside I would find your gift
So I looked outside and stared in awe
At the magnificence that before me I saw
A bridge that spanned across the sea
A bridge that you had built for just for me
A bridge that shone beautiful in the night
A bridge of silver spun silk glowing with celestial twilight
As if the spiders had spun it at your request
And the stars suspended it at your behest
Kept aloft by the stars you captured to light my way
So beautiful and luminecent I almost wanted to stay
But on the other side of this remarkable connection
Is a gem that that you have waiting for my collection
My eyes are beholding something impossible to concieve
Someone creating something so wonderous for me is hard to believe
My eyes fill with tears at the wonder my eyes behold
Stars shining reflecting off the silk in bright silver and gold
My tears shine like diamonds under the full moon
As my heart swells from your heartfelt boon
I begin my journey across the sea and stars
To find you waiting with open arms
I am lost in a moonstruck wonder a silent reverie
Pondering why such a magnificent person is deserved by me

    let the bridge shine night and day

    may for you, forever it does stay

    free of dust, untouched by rust

    strong, to last long

    beyond life and lifetime....

    holding its heart, hum of a timeless chime

    A bridge of silver spun silk glowing with celestial twilight
    As if the spiders had spun it at your request
    And the stars suspended it at your behest
    Kept aloft by the stars you captured to light my way..........

    love yet reasons to reason by glow in heart
    nobody yet knows how and when it grows, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , wonderful exposition of love by genesis, yet it is still mystery how, when and where it takes its shape of thing to come, most passionately scintillating sizzling across nature, yet utterly persuasive, ingeniously curved by the craving over the rungs of color yet by luscious glow ever attracting,10+++, thanks for sharing
