The Footprints Left Behind

When I was in the land
Of my memories,
In the midst of it
There I stood,
In this place where
The mountains of love written,
The land where the valleys
Of mourning established.

Here are the rivers
Of happiness and joy,
In where the hills of tears
Given rest,
And the great plains
Of sufferings overcome.

Here are the songs
Of glory and triumph.
In the sea of the past,
I went
And walked gently
Beside its shore:

I looked before the sea
And I said;
Here many went to catch fish,
Many sailed their boats
And traveled,
Many swim in this sea
And a multitude walked
Beside this beach.

Many people I am with
In my life
And walked with me
In the long journey.

Many dwelt in this place.
But I said
True friends and people
Left their
Footprints behind.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
