This Time is New

Every step I take is like a lover’s caress
And while I have felt the same caress countless times
This one is new. This one is happening for the first and only time now.
This time, sipping jasmine tea
This time touching the keyboard
This breath
Is new
It is only happening right now.
Look at it!
