Bridges of Home (poem)

bridges of home
by Tim Kavi

girders of strength
bring relief to the searching
absent loved ones
want to hurry home

familiar, looking closer
the beams are still strong
every lane leads home
peering closer
decay is evident everywhere

collapse is not imminent
just the wearings of age

home never looked so good
and I will take every bridge gladly
just to be back there
in your arms again

they carry me to all
that I loved and once knew
to the known, the expected,
the life of everyday surprise.
