This Time

I love the you that you are

and the way that it feels

when you are new to me

all over again and again

and we do these things

for the sake of us and then

the other things

follow naturally

as the hands

on our clocks


grope and caress

the passing  time

with the second hand

racing close behind

slowing to a crawl

none too soon

for the sake of it all

to keep its pace

with the moon

as the nights

of our lives together

rise with the sun

and we are still new

all over again and again.
