* Footprints in the Sand

April 10th
Dawn arrives with a familiar ache.
One year, a decade, a lifetime
It never changes
You are missed so much.
You have missed so much.
Birthdays and graduations
Weddings and babies
Kids, grands, great-grands
Your legacy.
I feel you still.
Whispers in the wind
Light playing on wave crests
The sway of my own boat.
Sail on sailor.
I’ll walk the beach
We’ll talk
You’ll fade away
Until next year.
Footprints in the sand.

John Benson, May 9, 1942 – April 10, 1982
