Footprints.

I leave footprints in the sand, light and dancing through golden grains. 
        I leave footprints on the tiles of kitchen floors, marks from barefoot walks in morning grass.
                    I leave footprints in so many places and yet it is not enough.

I want to leave footprints in peoples lives.
             Souls and minds.
Making them smile when they think of me.

I want to leave footprints on the earth.
            My name remembered,
                        my legacy engrained in the minds of those I love.

I want to do ballet on the moon
            and skip from star to star. 

I want my footprints to be more than things that
                                                                        fade.

I want to
            leave
                     a
                         mark.
