Christmas Countdown Poem 2021: 5. Footsteps in the Snow


My eyes look down,
As I miss you this year,
It's been so long, 
Since you were here.
***
The sound of your voice,
The gifts that you gave,
Are all memories now,
Of Christmas far away.
***
My eyes drift down,
And see footprints there,
Walking next to me,
Where you once were.
***
A tear comes to my eye,
And I wish you were here,
To comfort me when I'm sad,
In the dark of the year.
***
My eyes clear up,
And I see the footprints clear,
You were always beside me,
You are always there.
