O life! Precious horrible life!
A beautiful world to strive!

Where evil accompanies goodwill
Like day and night in endless seal!

The smell of you fills with Heaven
Yet the taste is hell even!

Your passion like Samson's for Delilah
Yet a romance is a tormenting fire

So precious one barely wishes you away
Yet horrible another prays not for another day!

O life! Precious horrible life!
A beautiful world to strive!
