Tea Leaf Tales: Two Sets of Tracks Follow Me Still

I looked over my shoulder, and these tracks following behind gave me a real surprise. I hadn’t brought my bike on this trip to the beach, and I walked alone. I stared at the odd sight, then smiled.

You were thinking of me as much as I was thinking about you, all the times we’d walked together. Years ago, when I was little, I took my bicycle everywhere. You stayed by my case I’d fall. Much later, a cane jumbled your shuffled footprints while we watched diving pelicans and chased hermit crabs into their sand tunnel homes. And I stayed by your side…in case you’d fall.

I never knew you’d come along today and leave these tracks. I’m so happy you’re still here…in case I fall.
