If


Life is beautiful
if
you close your eyes to outside
preserve every beauty inside,
for the bird in cage
imagining a fly

life is beautiful
if
you start every second with love

life is beautiful
if
you give and give, and get
until you die

life is beautiful
if
you give every thing up
your material life in passing of time

life is beautiful
if
you believe all of the children are yours
holding them in your arms and see their smiles
you cry and laugh with your brothers
suffer for their hunger and privations

life is beautiful
if
you never let anybody alone.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
