A bridge of time

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Joy Pixley. Thank you Joy!

a bridge of time so to speak
we hold hands and you kiss my cheek
challenges we try to manage
together we stand on the bridge

days come and go, people pass by
rain or shine, blue or grey sky
we’re best friends and love our marriage
together we stand on the bridge

from the bridge we can see the world
we transport ourselves to dream-world
we’ve known each other from college
together we stand on the bridge

we’ve seen sunrises and sunsets
days and nights, we have no regrets
and each other we encourage
together we stand on the bridge*

* A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines), and each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the poem consists of only eight syllables. There is no limit to the amount of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum.

Some popular rhyming schemes for a Kyrielle are: aabB, ccbB, ddbB, with B being the repeated line, or abaB, cbcB, dbdB.
