Footprints Beside Me


Alexander Palana

As I start down the path 
of my life's journey, 
I look down to see 
some footprints beside me. 

I wonder who it can be, 
the one that walks beside me. 

If the path I choose 
turns out to be wrong, 
and can't go on any longer, 
I look at those footprints, 
and feel incredibly stronger. 

I believe I know who it must be, 
the one that walks beside me. 

No matter what I say or do, 
you will always be there 
my whole life through. 

Mom, those footprints belong to you.
