Gently does it

Gentle is the way to a gentle life

Illuminating love

Gently with care, place me softly down

Gentle with air, blow your Spirit on my crown

Gentle with pain, open my heart with your nimble touch

Gentle with gain, only give what I need, not too much

Gentle with talk, say it all while being simple and humble

Gentle with walk, one foot then the other and try not to stumble

Gentle with heart, share it and know that love always surrounds

Gentle with art, share it for love, not for dollars or pounds

Gentle with mind, treat it like a palace garden

Gentle with my kind, thank you, sorry, I beg your pardon

Gentle with feeling, only give what I can handle

Gentle with healing, when it is dark, light my candle

Gentle with my soul, steer it smoothly down the one way creek

Gentle with my goal, devotion and faith, to the one I speak
