“Footprints in the Sand”

it’s hard during times like these to keep my head up
there’s empty chairs at the dinner table
making this house not as warm as it used to be
but i can’t give up
this is my opportunity
to cherish the greatest family

to my mother and father who poured my foundation
my pillars of strength who fed my veins with undying love and support
i thank you for making me me

to my brother, my best friend
who always kept my endorphins alive
younger in age but not much else
a bond that will never be broken

family meals and adoring fans
sincere advice and loving hands
a model for how things should be

from playing with toys on the bedroom floor
to lectures on how to behave
bending over backwards for me whenever i was ill
and being kissed and tucked in every night
i couldn’t ask for anything more

unlike footprints in the sand there isn’t a flood that can
wash these great memories from me
