WHEN COULD WE HAVE MET?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


                  were our parents ever children?
                  I can't imagine that.
                  and it seems even more certain
                  we've always been ourselves:
                  me, a veteran of the war.
                  you, no virgin anymore.

                  and now we mourn the death
                  of all our separate years
                  that could have been
                  measured with one clock.

                  but...

                  when could we have met?
                  when could we have met?
                  in what season?
                  when did you become
                  what I've learned to love?
                  when?

                  when could we have met?
                  when could we have met?
                  in what hour
                  did my eyes learn to divine
                  the underground springs
                  you possess?

                  when could we have met?
                  surely not
                  in the crib,
                  on the playground,
                  or homecoming day.

                  when could we have met?
                  not one day
                  before we did.
