The bridge on the river and a journey to heaven...

The bridge wooden looking fragile
Still went to the other side
Of the river...
The other side
Full of green tall trees...
And their tops swept in the breeze...

The boy and the girl
Were in the middle
Of the bridge...
Looking weak...
Making screeching sounds
Every time they tried
To move their feet...
The moth eaten planks looked like waiting
For their feet to cause them leave
The strings rusty and fall steep
Into the blue river...

The boy had eyes fixed on the green
The other side...
'loving colors and the breeze...
i think i should try
To go to the other side...
To those tall trees...incense bearing...
So fascinating...
But...'

The boy stopped here...
The girl had her eyes on the boy's
And nothing else did she see...

'what?'
The girl asked...

'i can't risk it...
You...how can i risk?'
The boy looking at the sleepy wavy green murmured...

'you love that place...na?'
The girl asked...

The boy bent his head to right...
To the extreme
To show his willingness...

The girl flashed a sunny smile...
Her ribbon she knotted tight...
Her shoes she took in her left hand
And the other hand
She extended to the boy...

'let's go...'

She said smiling...

And the two...
They walked along
Side by side
Over the moth eaten fragile bridge...
Which could break and fall
And slip straight into the river...
But the river was so blue...
And the sky too...
And the land on the other side-
It was so green...

A journey they started thus
based on Faith...
They were mere teens
And had no dearth of that...godly sense...
They had only innocence
And no apple tree around
And no Satanic shape
In form of a serpent...
To lure them...
To them tempt...

They had only God
And no Lucifer...
Perhaps...

So they walked...
And reached...
The other side unhurt...
To Heaven...
