A river is between us--
too deep and dark and swift to swim
and not be swept away.
We do not know the river’s source,
but there it is--
sometimes raging from a storm.
We see each other on our shores,
busy in our lives.
We wave and smile but cannot hear
across the rushing water
and do not speak.
Perhaps one day we’ll find a bridge
that we can cross
and sit beside each other
