Footprints on the Sand

Footprints on the Sand

A Poem by Margarette
"

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.

As I walked through the sandy shores

I looked back

Expecting you there

Instead, I only saw a pair of footprints

 

That wounded dream I've had

Where I ended up lost so many times

I don’t ever want to sleep again

And realize I would be alone

 

I’m frightened

To open my eyes and shed tears

To stand up and feel pain

Just how much can I bear?

 

I drew a rainbow

Which I contrasted with views of the future

If someday I proceed to continue

This journey along that horizon

 

But it always get longer

It takes more time

The worries I felt

Seem to stretch on and on

 

Of the 7 billion people in the world

Can I be any different from them?

I wonder

If  I live the same way as them

 

I write and put words into songs

Where I think I may have heard your voice

Blending with my melody

As I’m nearing the end of the rainbow

 

I’m sure these great days we've had

Were so full of lessons

And that I have learned

To climb over those high walls

 

As I walked through the sandy shores

I looked back

Expecting you there

But I didn’t see you

 

Instead, you are beside me

Hand in hand

We walk through life

Forever bound by fate

I liked how you add a picture to all your poems. It helps u capture the feeling of the poem, though you are very talented so I'm sure we could do that without it. Great job!

I agree with the poem. Some people leave their memory upon our mind and heart forever. I like the use of the beach and the walk to make your point. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Thank you again! Love to read your reviews!:D
This is so touching a picture you paint of your longing for togetherness, nostalgia and dreams! The words weaved in the stanzas of the poem do have a magical effect on the heart:
" write and put words into songs
Where I think I may have heard your voice
Blending with my melody
As I’m nearing the end of the rainbow

I’m sure these great days we've had
Were so full of lessons
And that I have learned
To climb over those high walls..."

The effect that the lines produce is beautiful in its aching intensity and ardor of divine, blissful love. Magical!

Thanks for the thoughtful review! I'm glad I presented it with such vivid imagery.:)
An awe inspiring piece of beautiful imagery and one lovely stanza after the next...this is truly my favorite...

I write and put words into songs
Where I think I may have heard your voice
Blending with my melody
As I’m nearing the end of the rainbow

Such sweetness in words, love this.
