Listening for Footsteps

My heart stops.
Yet, I don't miss a beat--
    the tick-tock of time,
    the tick-tock of loss.
Footsteps' electric language
Tells a tale of unrequited love--
    igniting a hope and a prayer
    that they will return someday.
Tick-Tock.  Tick-Tock.

                         --homage to C.S. Lewis
