Footprints

The pairs of footprints began in parallel

Sometimes overlapping in the overnight snow

I traced them across the dips and hollows

From where I stood next to the hilltop tree

On the last ascent to the cliff edge they parted

Until they each disappeared alone

I watched and waited until the last light faded

And the snow returned and covered the tracks
