You're as heavy as the pull of gravity,
As light as the fluttering of your wings...
You're as lively as the beating of your heart,
As young as the farsightedness of your eyes...
You're good as the ones you love,
Bad as the ones you hate...
Whatever the color of eyes and eyebrows are,
Your colour is like the one you face sees...
Don't take your past as a fat profit,
You're near to your end as much as you've lived.
No matter how long you shall live,
Your life is as long as you love...
You're happy as long as you are able to laugh.
Don't worry, know that you'll laugh as much as you've cried.
Never think that everything has finished,
You'll be loved as much as you love.
The nature values you with the sunrise
And you're human as much as you value the one you face.
If you'll lie one day,
Let her believe you as much as she trusts you.
In the moonlight is your longing for your lover,
And you're close to your lover as much as you long for her.
Don't forget that you're wet as much as it rains
And warm as much as the sun heats you.
You're as lonely as you feel you are
And as strong as you feel you are.
You're as beautiful as you feel you are...
So this is life!
So this is what it means to live!
You'll live as long as you remember this
And when you forget,
You'll be chilled by every breath you take.
And you'll be forgotten as quickly as you forget the one you face.
A flower is beautiful to the extent that it's watered
Birds are lovable as much as they're able to sing
And a baby is a baby as much as it cries.
And you know everything as much as you learn; so learn this too:
You are loved as much as you love.
