Footprints on my heart

Through the sands of time
In this short life of mine
A few friends have become strangers
And some strangers more important than life

Some walked in for a moment
And stayed on forever
Some disappeared
Breaking promises of a lifetime

So many have shared laughter
A few wiped my tears
A trusting shoulder I cried on
Even a knight who fought my fears

Some unchanged friendships
Some tearful separations
Some unspoken words
Many unforgettable conversations

I am grateful for both, the good and the bad
And for those close, and even those who grew apart
For they've all left behind their indelible marks
Eternally etched like footprints on my heart
