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.
WALK WITH ME…TO THE SEA…
