Once in a while, I turn around,

to look back at the beach of life.

So many footprints I saw in sand,

imprinted clearly alongside mine.

Some had faded far behind, 

washed away by the waves of time.

There were some ahead of me, 

I fret no more to be with them.

A few appeared beside me still, 

as I walked on and on.

Time smiled and mused out loud,

“So many more, yet to appear.”

“So many more, yet to vanish.”
