I Recognised This Path

I recognised this path,
I knew it step for step.
Where I might slip,
Where I stumbled before.

I knew how to glide,
Through troublesome doubt.
I skipped with joy
Through anticipation.
I gleefully gambolled
Through laughter.

So these bruises are strange to me.
I have not seen them before.
You changed the path,
Ever so slightly.

This twist,
This turn,
They’re new to me.
Your hand in mine.

I learnt how to walk this path,
I’ve done so many times.
This time is different though,
This time, I’m not alone.
