A New Set Of Footprints In The Sand



Time they say heals all wounds, nay, nor is there any truth to this tale.

Yet time makes things easier somewhat; except when hearts duly fail.

I chased today a whisper on the wind, as it blew across imaginary seas.

And I smiled at the place where we once lay and made our secret dreams.


Yet new dreams are born in the days of the living.

Born in friendships; conceived in new beginnings.

Even though the spirits of yesterday shall forever be.

It is through butterfly whispers that one is now set free.


Four more days until I plant a new set of foot prints on another golden shore.

I will walk in silence; I will walk amidst new dreams, but in faith I shall cling forevermore.

I know not the future, but I have known such love in the past.

I will step forward in faith and see if in the sand along with mine, another set of footprints shall be cast.

Soft,inviting and inspiring, giving one faith that everything is possible

I love this stanza
"Yet new dreams are born in the days of the living
Born in friendships; conceived in new beginnings.
Even though the spirits of yesterday shall forever be.
It is through butterfly whispers that one is now set free."

Warmth and Love to you, Carin' Spirit
