  Did you know I was walking behind you?
I matched my footprints to yours
       heel to heel
       toe to toe
We both had the same wide foot
  with a little curve on the instep
  and a high arch
It took great concentration
to match our steps

Did you know I was so dedicated?
  I was watching the steps so closely
  matching every little line
I did not realize or understand
when your steps changed.
       the curve of claw
       the thrust of bone
       the thread of blood
I stepped out quietly and put my shoes back on
  of course,
       I do not think you ever knew I followed.
