Footprints

A footprint laid down by a traveler
The tide washes in
The footprint washes out
It is gone

The traveler walks by years later
And ponders why the water
Erased that step so key to him
It was never there

Yet still the traveler longs
Knows that he was there
Has no proof, only memory
The tides of time rushed in
The memory was changed as
The tide rushed out

Yet still he curses the water
Sits on the beach and yearns
The tide comes in and swallows him
When the tide ebbs
The traveler is not found
