Poem work

I did this collage because This poem is related to it.

Footprints in the Sand

        One night I dreamed I was walking quietly beside the beach with the Lord.
             Many scenes from my life floated across the sky.
                In each scene I see footprints in the sand.
                       Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
                           other times there were one set of footprints.
                                  This annoyed me because I noticed
                                that during the low times of my life,
                             when I was suffering from
                       Madness, sorrow or Loss,
                     I could see only one set of footprints.
          So I said to the Lord,
      "You promised me Lord,
         that if I followed you,
             you would walk with me everyday.
                   But I have noticed that during
                          the most trying time of my life
                                 there have only been one
                                       set of footprints in the sand.
                                           Why, when I needed you the most,
                                          you have not been there for me?"
                                 The Lord replied,
                          "The times when you have
                  seen only one set of footprints,
          is when I carried you."
