Footprints

Tiny toes,
Little footprints
In the sand
Each following
One after the other
Wandering
Sometimes up a slight rise
Sometimes 
Close to the water’s edge
For a moment
Blurred outlines lost
Reappearing after the wash wave
Pray little footprints
Be always safe
Life and strife
Can wash them away
But only love
Can make them stay
