Why Have We Met


Why have we met so late, O baby
As if our hands and legs are now tied up
So our minds have got nothing to do but weep daily!

If we never ever met, my love
We would have a consolation at least!

The people are speaking ill of us so much
But we can’t help staring at each other
If my eyes are set on yours!

You know what, our love has become immortal
Cause our minds have burnt to ashes
And our eyes have become the clouds!

We won’t have a life together, it seems
But we can’t help longing for each other!

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
