foot
Even if it’s only footprints on a carpet
Or blades of grass crushed where I once sat
Or a muddy scar upon a garage wall
Where my hand had leaned upon
Or a thumb print on a pane of glass
On that day we talked and talked
Or a smile that made your face light up
When you thought of what I said
Or a note left out to tell you news
Now crushed and thrown away
Or a space that I once stood upon
Now emptier in the absence
Even for just one of those
That I am remembered by – then I’ll be satisfied,
I was here.

  1. I like this. If you had the icons I’d share it on my Twitter. The sense of leaving a lasting impression and knowing or understanding how our presence carries on outside our departure. This poem made me think. Thank you for sharing.
