Yet another poem-esque thing that I wrote a looong time ago and hasn't seen life outside of my MySpace blog.

In beauty there is pain,
In love there is loss.
In good there is bad,
In light there is dark.
In happiness there is loneliness,
In joy there is sorrow.
In day there is night,
In sunlight there is shadow.

With a good time comes a bad,
With the day comes the night.
With the sun comes the moon,
With the joy comes the sorrow.
With the happiness comes the loneliness,
With the sunlight comes the shadow.
With beauty comes pain,
With love comes loss.

It is a cycle as old as time itself.
None can escape it,
None are free from it.
It will happen.
If not today,
One day.
For nothing good lasts long.
Everything is like a red rose.
Even if it is beautiful today, remember,
One day, it will wither and die,
And all that will be left
Is the memory of what once was
And shall never be
Again.
