Footprints - Poem by Hanna Collins

Loved ones leave footprints
on your heart, or so they say,
But who wants people walking all over
their hearts anyway?
Surely if someone loved you
they would tread gently
So as not to leave a mark.

    A 10 from me, because you've said what you want to say, and instead of ranting on you write it beautifully! (Report) Reply
