Westlife - The Rose 

Some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love it is a hunger

an endless aching need
I say love it is a flower
and you it's only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking

that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely

and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose .

Health is ...

Health is water!
Splash of water

Health is fruits!

Health is movement!

Health is inner balance!

Health is nature!

Health is care!

Health is laugh!

Health is the desire to live!
