A sharp indrawn breath
A welcoming warm hearth
Awaited your footsteps…..
Your first tottering steps
Moments of heart melts
Awaiting firmer lil footsteps…
Your first steps to the school ground
Your first “no entry ” board I found
Happy footsteps back – I smiled.
–Your entry into college to Engineer
Left me a proud and happy mother
I watched your footsteps bounce!
Your footsteps left home one day
Leaving my nest empty every way
Your confident footsteps made me smile☺
Now never at home, every game and puzzle
Remind me of you and your long lost nuzzle….
Hark, are those Footsteps I hear
Is your arrival home so so near
Son, it’s been more than a year
Now footsteps are all I want to hear!
