And again! “Game of Tears”


Mr. Shvets' muse strikes again !

Life's a game
So a poet said
So when in this game
Are our tears shed ?

When we begin
This game of life
Our parents weep
Thanks to our strife

And then we learn
To cry as well
As we discover
Life can be hell

But then emerges
Tears of joy
As boy meets girl
And girl meets boy

But after that, well, it depends
From blazing rows, we make amends
We hope, we pray that future tears
Do not reflect our deepest fears

And at the end
When all is done
We've had our moments
We've had our fun
We trust that those who love us dear
Will come together to shed a tear

And so the game is ended.
