HUMAN BRIDGES ๐Ÿงก ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿ’œ AN A a a A POEM !



 

BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER ~ FUND RAISER FOR GRENFELL TOWER !

 

BRIDGES ~ enable us to get from A to B

Getting over obstacles ~ that hinder YOU & ME

They can cross a CANYON ~ They can cross a SEA

BRIDGES ~ enable us to get from A to B !

 

BRIDGES ~ have existed ~ since the Birth of Man

Two banks of a River challenge  *Cross me if you CAN !*

Rope BRIDGES for walking ~ Steel ones for a VAN

BRIDGES ~ have existed ~ since the Birth of Man !

 

WE TOO can be BRIDGES ~ Helping People in Distress

Social lives are BROKEN ~ Love lives in a MESS !

They just need A Helping Hand ~ A Smile & A Caress

WE TOO can be BRIDGES ~ Helping People in Distress !

 

SO ~ next time you see a BRIDGE ~ THINK ~ That could be ME

Bridging FOLK from NOPE to HOPE ~ in adversity

Volunteering @ The Hospice ~ DEATH with DIGNITY

SO ~ next time you see a BRIDGE ~ THINK ~ That could be ME !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love A & B ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

 

In the UK there is less MONEY for SOCIAL CARE & SOCIAL

HOUSING !  Libraries and Community Centres & Youth Clubs

etc are being closed. There are hundreds of OPPORTUNITIES

for People of all ages to Volunteer to make THEIR COMMUNITY

a much Happier Better & Safer Place ! WE CAN ALL BE BRIDGES !

    A fine write B&A. Fido rescued me. I crossed a bridge. I did not see the notice: 'Warning: Bridge Out!'
    I did not understand - I thought the bridge had gone out shopping or something. Enough twaddle from me! lol.

      GOOD MORNING UNCLE STEVE ! Its like the Famous *BRIDGE @ AVIGNON in FRANCE* We get half way across and it stops in Mid-river so you either get WET and go to the other SIDE (thats what Bridges are for !) or go back to SQUARE ONE ! Pleased you enjoyed it ! As HUMAN BRIDGES we should never stop in the Middle of a Crisis ~ AMEN

      Blessing & Joy to YOU & FEARLESS FIDO !

      THANKS *D* Yes indeed - we all experience BROKENNESS from time to time in our lives - which can lead to despair. I guess the point we are making is that its helpful when someone comes along side and helps us (in a gentle way !) to mend our brokenness and lift our despair. Thank you for your helpful comment.

      Peace & Joy to You
      Your Friends ANGELA & BRIAN

      Nicely said, A&B. I guess you could have added a lot more stanzas. Build bridges between Nations, between Generations, between Races, and on and on. We can all become bridge-builders, no engineering degree required!

        Thanks for your comment FRED ~ much appreciated ! It is very true what you say ~ there are many areas of LIFE in which more cooperation (Bridge Building) would make a big difference. An example is BRIXET ! The UK voted to leave ~ so leave we must. However (despite the fact that we needed to get BREXIT done) Theresa Mays (Right Wi g PM) deal with Europe was defeated three times because LABOUR (Left Wing) refused to cooperate (build a Bridge) and the opportunity to get BREXIT done was rejected. Later some of the Labour MPS regretted their decision !

        Blessings & Peace & JOY
        Yours ANGELA & BRIAN

        very creative my friends,loved the music

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Thanks RON for your encouraging comment ! YES WE found the juxaposition and such an iconic song (Simon & Garfunkel 1970) with Grenfell Tower moving ! The first two verses of BRIDGE was writen by Paul Simon (who were Jewish) as a Hymn. The final verse *Sail on Silver Girl* was only added when they got in the studio. It lacks the empathy of the first two verses. This explains why on this very challenging occasion only verses 1.& 2. were played !

        Blessings & Peace & Joy
        Love ANGELA & BRIAN

        Very true A and B, we can all be 'bridges' if we care - I do.

          Thanks UNCLE ANDY ~ Have a Blest Sunday. It is important in everyday life to seek opportunities to be strong Human Bridges. We have mentioned before that your loving care (and oft mention of Joyce is an inspiration to us all. Each visit you make is a BRIDGE into your (oft shared) precious memories of the past. These flashbacks make Yout Poetry very personal ~ poignant & precious !

          Blessings & Peace to You & Your Lovely JOYCE
