Footprints in the Snow

Footprints leading away in the snow
I can't help but wonder where they will go
Do they lead to some exotic destination
Or will they lead to a sudden termination
Should I follow where ever they go
Or will they show things I don't want to know
There is a secret they softly whisper
But is it something I really want to hear?
Could it be a farmer about his morning chores?
Or a traveler bound for exotic shores
Will they teach a valuable lesson
Or are they just a silly girl's obsession?
I can't help but wonder where they go
So I'll follow deep into my soul
Never fearing I will learn what I want to know
From these footprints leading away in the snow
