INTRO: I wrote the last verse for my brother and his wife’s thirty-five wedding anniversary. They live in a beautiful seaside town, which inspired the theme of this poem. I have added two verses to explain the inspiration of the poem. They are the family members that live 800km away from me that I wrote about in the poem titled ‘Distant Family and Friends.’ Beverley Joy
As I walked along the shoreline
The summer sun scorched my bare arms
The warm breeze was singing in my ears
The ocean was surging around my feet.
I looked behind me and I could see
A trail of my footprints along the beach
Some were high above the tide line
When this image of love came to my mind.
The tide may rise but will not wash away
The sun may scorch but will not bake dry
The wind may blow but will never hide
Your footprints of love are stamped on my heart.
