The bridge has been used as a symbol in many poems, songs and pieces of literature. It often symbolizes connections, continuations or transitions. In the Novel, A Bridge to Terabithia, the bridge is a connection between one world and the next. The quote, “never burn your bridges” tells us that no matter who we meet or where we travel, that route or person may one day lead us in the direction we want to head. Sometimes in life, friends and family are bridges. They support us ‘like bridges over troubled waters” and lead us to where we need to be. The bridge is more than a physical structure. It can be a symbol of so much more.
