Come in; tread lightly, by Miranda Williams

Come in,
But tread lightly on my aching heart
Move slowly and let not your jarring laugh
Cause it’s brittle edges to crumble

Come in,
But tread lightly on my breaking heart
Understand that I won’t allow you to try to heal what’s left, for the pain is a strange comfort

Come in,
But tread lightly on my hurting heart
Move gently, for peace is all that it can bare in this moment

Come in,
But tread lightly on my swollen heart
It can absorb no more, but it’s deafening, irregular beat can be soothed by your presence

Come in,
But tread lightly on my fragile heart
Help me to protect it from the noise
Of a world it is not yet ready to rejoin

Come in,
Sit with me until one day
My aching, breaking, hurting heart,
Aches, breaks, hurts a little less

Come in,
Sit with me until one day,
My swollen, fragile heart
Begins to calm

Come in,
Sit with me until one day,
I may start to restore.
