Footprints


I was here before
Many springs and disappointments ago
On another new moon night
I stood right here
In the pitch dark
Beneath the starry sky
Surrounded by the curvy silhouettes
Of sleepy hills
I was stargazing
My empty hands were searching
For your touch
In vain
I was trying to picture you
Trying to make a guess
What you might be doing that time
I hope the universe sent you a signal
I hope your left eye twitched
Or maybe a sudden hiccup
Because miles away
In the dark of night
Under the dying breath of millions of stars
I had left your name on the hills
Maybe someday,
Someday you would come home
To pick up where you had left
You would find me right there.
