Footprints of the Heart


Two hearts embrace and reminisce
The passage of their years
Immersed with feelings from the past
Nostalgic are their tears
A whispered word, a tender touch
A charm engraved "with love"
Suspended in a web of time
Empowered from above
The love of youth unscarred by time
Lies mirrored in their soul
Reflecting rhythms of their love
"Symphonic barcarole"
The years have weathered her fair skin
His hair has turned to white
The seasons whisper their lament
Dark shadows are in sight
The ecstasy of love once shared
Some "fifty" years ago
Still glows within their weakened hearts
Like "fire in the snow"
Can love sustain the test of time
With lovers torn apart
No earthly force can take away
The "footprints in their heart"
