In the journey of my life's ups and downs
You accompany me and guide me
With my burdened heart
I see your footprints left in the sand

The footprints you leave behind
Encourage me to go on
My prayers flow like tears
Watching your presence left in the sand
And your care imprinted in my heart

I know you have carried me
My footprints I cannot see
You want me to be happy, fulfilled and free
To complete the works you have begun on me.

Nice images and thoughts. A beautiful song of appreciation and gratefulness.
I Like this creative & most eloquent spin on the well-known Anonymous penning, of ''Footprints In The Sand'', circa 1922. Many say Stevenson was the one & only author, tho' in actuality, there are 3 known early 20th century versions...two of which state original authorship claim, Stevenson being one of them... despite no concrete proof that either of these these 2 versions hold any merit as being the original write. Unfortunately, the 3rd version, and the only one(I.M.O.) that is most likely to be considered as the original ''Footprints In The Sand'' is the one labeled ''Anonymous''...leaving literary pundits, scribing theologians, and scores of interested Reader's, stonewalled...possibly forever. Beautiful Work, Meggie, as always can be expected, whenever you take pen to paper to posting! FjR
I feel the way you do and know that it would be a lonely and frightening journey without Him. Very well said. A '10! ' Warm Wishes, Marilyn

: -) He whispered, 'My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints it was then that I carried you.' - Hi Meggie, I love your poem cos I love those words (I keep that little book next to me always) 10/10
