Tracking dreams

Dreams, we say, are to be chased
Like a child with a jar
Who aims to catch the stars

I would have come along to chase your dreams
But I am earthly-bound
And my footprints hold me to the ground

Footprints are not far removed from stars
They are the tracks of dreams across the sky
And I can't help but think
You're up there with a jar.
