The Bargain of Joy and Sorrow

Life is but and experience
With changes so many
There are sorrows and joys
But we cant own any

When you're happy with life
And smiles cross your face
There comes a barrier
And slows down your pace

If you are depressed
Sitting sad and morose
All at once, a stroke of luck
Brings you whatever you chose

I was living a placid life
With no great joy or sorrow
All content, I did not know
What was to come tomorrow

Tomorrow came and you came
And changed my life forever
I lost my senses and my peace
And no longer felt so clever

Then I knew how before
My life had been so empty
You came along and filled it up
With joys and sorrows plenty

Sometimes you hurt and make me cry
Sometimes I live for you
But for the love and happiness you give
I'll take all the sorrows too.
