FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND... SIDE BY SIDE BY GLORIA FAYE BROWN BATES/ aka GRANNY GEE Footprints in the sand... side by side running this way, that way.. later to be washed away by the tide A little boy, a big guy ran playing with exhilarating joy Squealing, laughing... this big guy with his little boy Put your toes in the water, let the waves wash over them I'm afraid, the little boy said... I'll protect you, the big guy told him That's what daddys are for... to protect and love Taban, I don't have time to say goodbye... I'm being called from.. above There are angels close by, angels to protect you until mommy comes I meant to be here with you, to play with you my precious son Hey... the sea gulls are calling my name... 'Tommy, come home' Oh Taban, I don't want to leave you here all alone A little boy stood alone on the sand by the body of his father, a big guy.. a big man Daddy, are you playing? Daddy, get up, let's run and play Come on, Daddy... the little boy doesn't know ..yet.. his daddy's gone away The group of people who'd been watching them near by Came as the sea gulls told Tommy with their cries These people, the angels will watch over Taban, it's time to go One day Taban will know you wanted to say goodbye, he'll know That there wasn't time to, the sea gulls needed you to fly To go home now... in peace your body lies On that beautiful sand by the sea The sea gulls took Tommy home, you see They left Tommy's discarded body there, while his soul flew Somehow he made it in time to play with Taban, somehow.. I think he 'knew' It was time to go home, for his spirit to soar up to heaven above leaving with his little son... all of his love Come fly with us, Tommy... let your spirit soar with joy The angels will protect your little boy Come home, Tommy.. the sea gulls said Everything will be alright in time, though for now.. your loved ones will be sad Tommy left... looking down he could see the footprints side by side Soon... they'd be washed out to sea... the little guy and big guy's footprints, by the evening tide Goodbye Daddy, Goodbye Husband, Goodbye Son Goodbye Special Person from ... everyone Footprints in the sand, side by side Later that evening ...they were washed away ... by the tide
