Footprints in the Snow

I tried to follow,
your footprints in the snow,
so that rather than wallow,
I could see where they would go.

I followed them through the wood,
in and out of the beaten path.
My Eyes saw nature’s inner good,
and nature’s vicious wrath.

But what surprised my Eyes the most,
was to follow your footprints through two doors,
and to leave my heart lost,
as I saw two footprints next to yours.

I really liked this peice. it's sweet. The way you capitalised the word eyes is very intresting and adds another level of meaning to the work. Beautifully done.
