# # # 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

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
