Our Footprints


We strolled along the sand

Two lovers hand in hand

The calming sound

Of the sea

An eternal sound

Looking back 

What we did see

Was our footprints left

Side by side 

Soon to be swept away

By the relentless

Incoming tide

There are other footprints

That we will leave behind

Children, family and friends

Who together 

We have shared 

All of the emotions

That humans do possess

But most of all the footprints 

That we will leave behind

Are memories 

That will never pass

Of the love we have

For each other

A love we have

For mankind
