Come in; tread lightly

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.
