Foot Prints in the Sand

Do you know who I am?
I followed you? No.
I am with you always.
Step in step, in fact I am you.

You turn back, but do not see me.
You look with your eyes, this is faulty.
With your ears, you listen for me coming.
Your ears let you down, quiet them.

My smell does not reach your sniffing nose.
Nor will it ever.
Reaching behind, you try to grab me.
Your hands only grab air.

Don’t you understand, your mind and body fail you.
Close all senses, shut off all thoughts.
Do you know who I am?
Foot prints in the sand.

Spoiler Below!! Stop Here if you don’t want to read my answer.

The answer is, you (soul), soul (you), and God. Firstly, often times we say the word soul as if it is not us, when we should be using it as an alternative to the pronouns, I, You, Yours, etc. Secondly, God is always with us and we are always with God (to what degree we are aware of this differs greatly from person to person). Lastly, to understand these answers and identify the foot prints in the sand, you must not use the body (5 senses, etc), nor use the mind (thoughts, reason, logic etc). You (soul) need only to turn inward and the owner of the foot prints in the sand become easy to see.

Living, Writing Beach

The beach is my life
And the blue ocean breeze my friend.
I am at peace here, while
A lone sea bird protects me.

But why do thee follow?
Every day you sit, perched feet away.
Your stance is stoic.
I am proud to know thee.

 

 

 

 

Your coat is beautiful, soft white on gracious gray
And when you do fly, it is a sight to see.
At times you wander off, with friends I suppose;
Yet, I always see thy face again.

The beach is my love
And the blue ocean breeze my soul.
I can breathe again.
My sea bird, my protector, I thank thee.

Insert Your Name in the Blank: For _____

No, time goes quick.
Yes, our days seem long.
Yet, the hours bleed away.

But you live in my heart.
And in my thoughts.
Please minutes, take your time.
