Man and woman begin again
Once more after war
Finding out about dying then
For a garden or a metaphor
To win or lose who choose at last
Dying to live for
Living by forgiving the past

That the future may be more
Of a present than this
Former child of a latter war
Presents now like a kiss
That will not turn away
Till yesterday becomes today
And then becomes now when

Today becomes tomorrow
Turned all the way from worst to best
But that is then and this
Is now and never mind
The rest that is before behind
When this not there is where we find
Us here now anyway

After the dying for of war
Forgiving before the living for
Whatever was that was then because
Between what will be and what was
What might be and what might have been
For a garden or a metaphor
Us here now is how we win

Between us knowing what we mean
Ending as begun
Through tears to laughter after all
Who entre nous through two to one
Know spring follows fall
Through winter when we enter in
Man and woman begin again
