I left footprints in the sand one day
running along the shore,
the sparkling waves washed them away
for others to make more.

I left footprints in the snow one night
beneath a full moon's sky,
the morning melted them away
and left me wondering why.

I left footprints on a heart one time,
once when we laughed and played,
and though I'm miles and miles away,
I know they'll never fade.

a grasp of both time and mind mingle in a voice screaming, so much left to the page and canvas, perfection lives and die in the minds of those find reality in the write of other, I have a huge smile.. Walt

Hi Regina,
This is a very nice poem. You have a good rhythm going,and the repetition of the 'footprints' accents the verse and gives continuity.
I like the twist in the last stanza...whre in the others the footprints somehow get erased, in the last stanza you show us that some impressions will last forever. Nice Job!!

Great job Reggie. And are you going to get Paul back. I am dying to know.
