At times I can amuse,
Making you grin,
At times I can abuse,
Making you wince.
I make you smile,
Then I make you cry,
For I am very versatile.

At times I bring comfort,
Making you reflect,
At times I bring pain,
Then me you'll reject.
When I bring joy,
You want me to persevere,
When I bring agony,
You want me to disappear.

But I'll always go on,
Until the very end,
Until death has won,
Over you my friend,
Then with you I will die as well,
For I am just a memory,
And only in you I dwell.
