"Walking Alone"



"Walking Alone"

Early this morning I found myself walking along the tide-line... thinking of you...

I found myself looking out across the water... thinking of you...

I found myself gazing up at the sky... thinking of you...

... and then I thought I felt your presence.

I turned around to see nothing but a single set of footprints in the sand...

... and you were not there...

... not the way you promised you would be...

... not the way I needed you to be. 

I stared at the footprints, knowing that they were my own...

... and I knew that I was walking alone.
