Thread Lightly As You Go - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Thread Lightly As You Go
Date: February 26,2012

Tread lightly on my heart, sweetheart
Speak soft, and gently go
For locked behind the walls of steel
The pain of sorrow grows

Locked within a rusty cage
A dream in pieces lies
Like diamonds of a moonlit night
Torn from the midnight skies

Whilst round and round, the whispers
Float gentle in the gloom
Just memories in a garden
Where once our passion bloomed

Time has laid to rest, my love
The blooming of my heart
In cold and lifeless slumber
It perished in the dark

Tread lightly, love…tread lightly
So fragile is the glass
Tis fraught with many fractures
And wounds of seasons past

The wind outside is ruthless
The days…so long and cold
A thief of bright tomorrow's
Stepped in to steal our gold

Like a puzzle left unfinished
A poem without an end
My passion's loosed and fraying
No soul to help it mend

Thread lightly, dear…thread lightly
Speak soft, and gently go
Leave only care and mercy
To tend the seeds you sowed
