Footsteps

Footsteps

.

A trail of footsteps lead

across the fine sea sand

washed away in moments

by the incoming tide

gone without a trace

love letters long erased.

.

I walk along the high tide line,

mine are the steps i leave behind

my heart bleeds with every beat

consumed by memories

of a love that died

that couldn’t last from tide to tide.

.

The weight i drag upon my back

in a sack i cannot share

mine to own and mine alone

a task to shoulder willingly

‘til He shows me the way to go

smooths the path for me to follow.

.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. Ah, but we have been promised the weight will not be too much, that we can not bear it.
    That he will share the yoke. Thank goodness our love relationship with Christ is nothing
    like that of our humaness. We are not the best when it comes to relationships, it seems.

    • The thing is that we can communicate with Christ and/or God without words. Unfortunately we need to find the right words to communicate with human beings and, thus. are sometimes misunderstood. And that’s without reading body language!
