Foot Steps from the Past

Echoes of fading foot steps
evoke memories so strong
of loved ones that were lost
for their parting feels wrong

a shadow through the darkness
or a slight waft of their scent
glimpses of a former life
seem to be here to torment

a slow and steady rhythm
like a beat across the ground
as each step tells its story
mixed emotions can be found

haunting sounds are still heard
as if someone is walking by
these passing rhythmic foot falls
stirs my soulful heart to sigh
