These Ties (Original Poetry) 

The time between then and now

The bridge between us,

To walk across all these lines.

To find peace again.

The power of connections.

How it all reminds

Me of all those great times and

I will keep these ties.
Inspired by the Wednesday Poetry Prompt by Robert Lee Brewer of Writer’s Digest.

Prompt: Write a poem about connections.
