My Footprints


Melissa at Raindrops has a beautiful poem posted on her website entitled, These are my footprints. She said that I could share with my readers.

Love to you all. xo. Lea

These are My Footprints

"These are my footprints, so perfect and so small. These tiny footprints, never touched the ground at all.

Not one tiny footprint, for now I have my wings. These tiny footprints were meant for other things.

You will hear my tiny footprints, in the patter of the rain. Gentle drops like angels tears, of joy and not from pain.

You will see my tiny footprints, in each butterflies' lazy dance. I'll let you know I'm with you, if you give me just a chance.

You will see my tiny footprints, in the rustle of the leaves. I will whisper names into the wind, and call each one that grieves.

Most of all, these tiny footprints, are found in mummy's heart, cause even though I'm gone now, we'll never truly part."

I can just see our children running around trying to get our attention. I think sometimes we do need to stop for a moment, and just listen.

I saw your picture and letter on the right hand side of your precious Nicholas. He was born the day after my precious Chaya was. Also sleeping.

The poem in this entry is beautiful. I've been having some darkness issues the last few days, and while the poem made me cry, it also gave me some peace. Thank you for sharing it.
