My Path

dancing with you
I learned to feel your steps
with a ribbon on my eyes
I moved
from here to there and back

touching all the places
you wanted me to touch
I discovered
and recognised
the pain, the grief
the sorrow, the spite

forgotten somewhere
and yet – still there
I unearthed them
to feel again, to cry and smile
as they were old ghosts
who came to say goodbye

Grateful for them I thought
I’ll be watching your steps
fully aware why…
being here, ready to dance
whenever you’re willing…
to learn to feel my path
