There is a bridge
Not far from here
Over still waters
Its back bends
Under the weight of duty
Its head raised
It stares at the sunset
The bridge is old now
Stones of silent gray
It cannot speak of us
It is proud yet
Bearing ash memories
It is sadness
They cannot return

We are the boat
Under those arches
Over the water
Floating on sapphire

There is a bridge
Not so far away
May we meet there
It can carry us
We can also be
Like a bridge
Over deep waters
No burden too great
No age too long
To wait for the sunrise
It shall not move.
