# # # Footsteps (inspired by the poetry of Laurie Hill)

Because of you
I can find my way through the darkness
And know enough to follow the sound
That will lead me to a safer place

And because of you
I am never truly alone
For in my solitude
you find a way to let me know
You're still around

When I call... you answer
And in some mysterious way

I always know
You'll lead me home
Come what may

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
