Footprints

I walked the road of sorrow,
A road so dark with pain,
So lonely, I was certain
My cry for help was in vain.

But suddenly around me
Were beams of light, stretched wide;
And then I saw that someone
Was walking by my side.

And when I turned to notice
The road on which I trod,
I saw two sets of footprints:
My own... and those of God.
