Sort Of Deep

Somebody asked me what the date was yesterday.
It’s a common enough question. But this time it made me think.
It has been two seconds past ten minutes past sixteen hours before. It has been the thirty-first before. It has been January before. It has been this time and this date in this month before. It has been this year before, has been this year for thirty-one days.
It will be all of these things again.
But it will never be exactly this time today in this month this year again. And every minute that comes will never be repeated.
Every second that passes is a second that has never been lived before.
That seems sort of deep.
