Footprints On An Empty Shore


Footprints On An Empty Shore

Memories blooming

Flooding out in silence

Footprints

On an empty shore

Slowly erased

By the incoming tide

A single leaf

Battered by winds

Flutters down to rest

Slowly filled with sand

Anchored

Until the ocean claims it

Carries it away

A fragile vessel

Afloat on a surging sea

Falling to my knees

Reality beckons

I weep until tears are spent

And I wish that the tide

Would rescue me
