Years have gone by
Lots of water
Has passed under the bridge
And over it.

Now smooth,
Now serene
On occasions
And rough,
And rowdy.

Bridge remains
Solid as ever
Standing high and mighty
Battered but not broken

May it remain standing
Stringing our hearts
Sharing our joys and sorrows
In this journey of life,
Of lives.
