Footprints In The Snow - Poem by Wayne Wickham

As a child, my footprints were small,
Leaving tiny, soft prints in the snow.
Occasionally, they would be joined
By the larger prints of my parents,
And life went on.

As I got older, my footprints got larger,
Leaving heavier, deeper prints in the snow.
Occasionally, they would be joined
By the same size prints of my friends,
And life went on.

Recently, my footprints have stopped growing,
Leaving the same size prints in the snow.
They were slow, and all alone,
For there was no one to walk with,
And life went on.

Now, my footprints are alive,
Leaving light and easy prints in the snow.
They are often joined
By footprints of love and caring,
And life goes on.

Together, our footprints travel on,
Leaving prints, side by side, in the snow.
They are joined together
By love, friendship, and happiness,
And together, our lives go on.

    Together, our footprints travel on,
    Leaving prints, side by side, in the snow.
    They are joined together
    By love, friendship, and happiness,
    And together, our lives go on.
