Tread lightly into my world

Do not disturb the greenery

Do not rearrange the linens

Do not upset the keepsakes on display


Tread lightly onto my stage

Forget not the author’s pen

Forget not the director’s chair

Forget not the choreographer’s blocks


Tread lightly upon me

Lay not atop my needs

Lay not aside my feelings

Lay not against the current of my soul


Tread lightly into my world

Resist the desire to fix me

Resist the urge to control me

Resist the pattern of trying to live for me
