    FOOTPRINTS ACROSS MY HEART

    Ahead of me I see your footprints,

    So I decided to follow them.

    Each print shows me a piece of you.

    I see your kindness.

    I see your ability to teach.

    I see how you paint the world in bright colors.

    I see how you always find the goodness in others.

    I see you standing in the shadows to let someone else shine.

    And I see your footprints begin to fade.

    I look harder to find them, but all I see is deserted sand for miles.

    But then I look within myself and find your footprints across my heart.

    Now you may be gone, but my life is forever changed

    By the journey you had here on earth

    And the footprints you left behind.

    Angel - Another deeply sad and inspirational piece. You certainly can convey your emotions so that us readers feel the pain in your words. Very nicely written once again. Ken

    Truely Beautiful. My prayers are for you and yours, angel. we are so fortunate to see Jesus is our lives. I praise God for you and your hard, but miraculous life.

    This touched my heart and soul!... I think anyone who has lost someone they loved and would read this would finish the final line with tears streaming down their face... beautiful!

    I like our message and wording. It breaks my heart in some ways because it reminds me of people I have known. Good poem. Watch the spelling, though.

    hopefully the only typo was the word all. I will fix that once I'm able to edit. Thank you however for your comments.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
