A Bridge Too Far

I cannot fathom the distance between here and now. It seems so ethereal, like a heat wave shimmering on the horizon, or a star you can see but not touch. There may be an invisible bridge, filled with invisible obstacles and trapdoors that we will someday have to cross; we are crossing this bridge each day. On this crossover, we make what we can of life, and pray that the distance is not as far as it seems. Maybe it will not seem far when we finally look back and see ourselves on the other side.
