Feet that recall
The earthen floors in our home.
Feet that recall
the fresh soil beneath.
Feet that felt
the cobbled streets in my town.
Feet that touched
The fresh water from the stream.
Feet that recall
The soft green grass under their soles.
Now those feet feel
All the years gone by.
Now those feet
Want to relive childhood years.
Feet that now feel
The weight of hardships
And of life well-lived.
