Not Where But When
Birth/Brith by Harold M. Schulweis
There are matters not subject to the senses
taste, sound, smell, sight, touch
Matters elusive to definition
yet known without doubt.
Known to make us cry and laugh
to move us to unimagined heights
to courage and self-sacrifice.
Experiences -- like love or God
Cannot be fingered, placed or poked.
Of such things
it is wiser to ask
not where but when.
Don't ask where is love
don't ask where is God
ask when is love
ask when is God.
Together we'll find
the dawn of an answer.
