Love’s fast ones on all

Before I met my sweetheart many years ago,
I never knew the real nature of love;
Never did I know it could be so sweet
And so bitter;
Sweet at some moments;
Bitter at others;
Have you had your sweet moments of love?
And have you had your bitter moments as well?
Such is the duality of love;
It brings joy;
And it brings pain;
When the sweet moments come,
Hardly do we know that’s not all about love;
And when the painful moments come,
We know not that the joyful ones are waiting
Right at the corner,
Ready to pop in.
Love plays fast ones on everyone.
