This I by experience know,
that although to some love brings misery
or a severe kind of woe,
some people trod its path quite happily
and although at times I had been alone
in my later years,
I now have got the very one
who brings bliss and joy instead of tears.
Even if I had experience heartache before
now my life is merry and gay
even though a lady showed me the door,
another is at my side on this happy sunny day.
This I know that sometimes love brings happiness,
has something magical in every caress.
