Footprints In The Sand

Footprints In The Sand

Footprints in the sand.
Remnants of the past.
Portending to man,
Life can never last.

Trudging down the beach.
Our steps have shortened.
What we tried to reach,
So unimportant.

Waves grab at our feet.
Draw us to the source.
Signaling our retreat,
Washing away our course.

Sunrise on our backs.
Shadows extended.
Slowing in our tracks,
The path has ended.

The sole mark of worth
When we leave this land.
Life that we gave birth.
Footprints in the sand.
