I take the stairs.
These steps I take for granted.
One foot goes in front of the other.
I fall perfectly in time.
I apologize for my selfishness.
I know I should know better.
This gift I take advantage of.
I forget it is not yours but mine.
Let me help you with these steps.
You taught me how to take my own
and as you lose yours
I’ll help you with mine.
