15. Broken bridges

My hope was the bridge
  Between
My earth-cry and my Heaven-smile.
Alas, the bridge broke down
  Because
I forgot to pray
  This morning.

My promise was the bridge
  Between
My earth-necessity and my Heaven-immortality.
Alas, the bridge collapsed
  Because
I forgot to meditate
  Last evening.
