Tread Softly as You Go

Tread Softly as You Go


Tread softly as you leave me

In this cold and lonely place

Where dark nights are forever

And loneliness looms so heavy

Like the earth stacked above me

Tread softly as you go.


Tread softly on my world

As I stepped softly on your life

Try to understand

The child within

Who loved only once

But betrayed by him

Please donít say I told you so

Just tread softly as you go

Author's Notes:
To have no one to talk to and to leave this life without having yet lived. For my sister again.

You have powerful talent John..and you use it skillfully. Overwhelmingly sad, but amazingly done. B.
