A white flowing dress

All covered in beads

A pitch, black tux

With a neat white tie

A beautiful beach

A man and his wife

Soft white sand

Water lapping playfully

They walk hand in hand

Step by step along the beach

Wearing no shoes

Leaving footprints, waves efface

His jet, black hair

Her bright blue eyes

The time moves slowlyAs they walk

Not a care in the world

Unsure of the future

Not important right now

Right now it’s only them

Walking, smiling, talking

Lying down in the sand

The sun is setting

Stars soon shine

She falls asleep

As does his right arm

He doesn’t mind

Soon he too drifts to dreams

The sunrises

Seagullswake the sleeping

All creatures arise

except for her

Like the night she passed away

He carries her to the house

Calls family and friends

And so more learn

The shortness of life

The harshness of reality

Now only memories remain

Of Footprints in the Sand
