Footprints
by Amanda Lane Hall

Footprints in the sand, 
point where you are going, 
let you see what you've accomplished, 
show you where you've been. 

~ 

Footprints start out as 1 set, 
then grow into a pair, 
parallelled in stride, 
together always there. 

~

Then the footprints turn to more, 
into two or three or four, 
all around the loving pair, 
zig-zagging all the way. 

~

Then as fast as they were made, 
all the footprints start to fade, 
leaving the pair alone again,
to continue on their journey. 

~

And the pair continues on, 
through all sorts of weather, 
the years go by and by, 
they are so happy to be together. 

~

But then one of the pair grows weak, 
and suddenly they are gone, 
leaving only a set behind, 
so the set continues on. 

~

Then the pace begins to slow, 
and the stride has lost all pep, 
this delicate set of footprints, 
have taken their last step. 

~

And as the tide rolls into shore 
to wash the steps away, 
somewhere in the distance, 
you can hear the children play. 

~

Their footprints will continue on, 
across the vast, bright shore, 
and continue on the legacy, 
of those that went before. 

~

Footprints in the sand, 
point where you are going, 
let you see what you've accomplished, 
show you where you've been....... 

And where you hope to be.
