Away

Footprints in wet sand of beach
Footprints

You showed no sign that you were leaving

One moment and you were gone from my life

No chance for me to understand or plead with you

Nothing left but your footprints in the sand

I turned to gently touch your clasped hand

Reaching mine out into an empty space

A void where once you stood loving me

Nothing left but your footprints in the sand

What do I say to the still, dank air?

Do I cry out in vain to the dark clouds in the sky?

You left me with no ending but the absence of you

Nothing left but your footprints in the sand.

❤ ❤

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
