Heart and Sole

_____________________________________

The places where our feet go together

Are always the best places to be

Regardless of location or weather

As long as we are there as a we

Looking down to see our soles and leather

Brings smile to face and soul with guarantee

Things will be great where our feet are together.

No worries, I Have Big Shoes

_____________________________________

Why would someone use that old phrase

about having big shoes to fill?

Just boggles the mind even still.

Who uses that statement these days?

*

I’ll set you straight with no delays,

see these size 12s are filled with skill.

Why would someone use that old phrase

About having big shoes to fill?

*

So how about sharing praise,

don’t talk of people’s shoes to fill,

and explain to me, if you will,

why someone would use that old phrase.
