Long, cold winters followed by the spring

Good times will be back, don’t worry darling!

Sometimes pleasure, sometimes pain

Sometimes losses, sometimes gain.

Life is full of ups and downs

With the smiles, there would be some frowns.

Winning and losing is part of the game

How much you try, life will never be the same!

Happiness and sadness are a part of life

Along with celebrations, there will be strife.

Don’t you worry, keep your smile

Held your head high and perk up your style.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

— Albert Einstein

      The poem is excellent and yes, the video depicts love. You're a romantic, I see. Ha ha.

      Thanks Manatita! Inspite of being a failure at love, I am still a romantic :)

      Don't say this. We can only try. So many forces interact. You did what you could. You seem to be moving on. Great!

      @Manatita Thankfully I never lost faith in love and goodness of people. I was bitter for some time but Guruji rescued me from the web is self-pity and bitterness.

      These extremes in life make it interesting. Your beautiful lines describe them very well.

      Thank you Dora! Ups and downs are a part of living but smiling through the ups and downs is the Art of Living.

      This is definitely part of life, but we do have the opportunity to make it good, so VERY good.
