Impressions in the Sand Poem by Mark Farmer


On life's journey I take my steps
Thinking of where I am going
Taking a left then a right
My weariness is growing

I hear the waves a crashing
As I walk along the shore
Feeling sand under my feet
Each step becomes a chore

Looking at passing clouds
Watching them move about
My legs are getting heavy
With pain, I want to shout

Just before I give up
I feel a presence near
Noticing footprints next to mine
It's Jesus, He's here

I continue on my journey
Leaving my footprints behind
His feet does leave impressions
A blink of an eye before mine

My stride is getting stronger
My purpose is becoming clear
Jesus says to rest now
And lay all burdens here
