Donít

Donít look at me too closely
or watch what I am doing.
I might slip;
I might stumble;
I might fall.

Donít hold high expectations
or think Iíve got it made;
I am weak,
Iím still fragile,
Iím not whole.

Donít cherish preconceptions
of how I ought to act:
what I should think,
how I should feel,
what I should say.

Donít assume that now itís over,
that I am back to normal;
though I am better Ė
Iím not ALL better,
not yet well.

But if you want to walk with me
and pace your healthy stride
against my stumbling steps,
supporting one another,
to lend each other strength...

Then
we can travel
together.
