Footprints

Written by: Joya Wortham

Little girl standing at the door

I ask her, "Who are you waiting for?"

Without movement she says, "He'll be here.."

Hours go by and the girl has not moved

'Cuz if she did it would be a second she'd lose

Days go by and the girl's smile is gone

Her eyes eager to hide all the wrong

Weeks gone and she's sitting at the door

You could see her footprints in the floor

Months pass and pain fills her heart

Where was the sunshine in this dark?

Years gone, she's twenty now

The happy lil girl now wears a frown

No sign of him, hurt, she leaves the door

"Bye daddy," she says walking away

leaving nothing but her footprints in the floor.
