Nobody's life is a bed of flowers, according to Yoko Ono. Every one of us has a lot of pain and suffering in his or her life. We all die alone without any friends or family members around us. Life is indeed difficult for everyone.
To answer this question, let's first understand what Yoko Ono means when she says "life is a bed of roses". She does not mean that every one's life is full of happiness and joy. She is saying that even though most people suffer greatly during their lives, they also experience many happy moments too. Yes, even the poor get to eat delicious foods and sleep under a warm roof once in a while!
Now, if life is indeed hard for everyone, then why do we keep on living it again and again? Why don't we give up early in life? The answer to this question is simple: because we hope to have some kind of future benefit. We hope to meet someone who will love us and take care of us when we are old or sick. This is called "future benefit" and it is the reason why most of us keep on trying our best even though we know there is no way we can change our fate.
We all have crosses to bear, and all we can do is our best. Sometimes this means laughing off love poems written by strangers on the internet.
Life is not a bed of roses. The only thing that keeps us going is that knowledge that someone out there still loves us enough to tell us so. So before you comment on something that makes you feel sad or angry, remember that many people go through similar things every day. If you want to help them, then don't hide your feelings from them. Tell them how you really feel right up front. Maybe then they won't think the worst of you when you turn out to be wrong about something.
However, if we look around us, we will see that many people do have roses in their lives. They may be real roses or plastic ones but they always seem to mean something different to each person. Whether it's a friend, family member, pet or piece of art, everyone has roses in their lives to help them get through difficult times.
However, even though many people suffer, only a few are actually happy most of the time.

Summary of the Book The English Roses learn crucial lessons about friendship and survive their first crush thanks to a whirling dervish of a teacher and a sprinkle of magical fairy dust. This long-awaited sequel to Madonna's debut children's book, The English Roses, will please readers of all ages.
The story begins with the English Roses wondering what will happen to them after they are planted in London town. Will they still be friends? Will anyone love them? They soon find out that nothing is as it seems when a series of events leads them on many adventures throughout England. In the end, they discover that love is everywhere, even if you don't look for it.
Now, I know this isn't exactly a "children's book", but since it was written for kids, I thought I would include it. The writing style is very poetic and lyrical; it's almost like listening to a song. There is also a lot of depth here; there are multiple themes discussed including friendship, loyalty, forgiveness, and most importantly, love. This book has helped me understand those topics better. Although it is intended for young adults, I think any adult could enjoy this book.
The illustrations are done in watercolor by Rosalind Beier. They are simple yet effective; I especially liked the scene where the English Roses are planted in London town.
Rose bed (plural beds of roses) A pleasant or simple condition; a trouble-free existence It's a simple profession, but with such long hours, it's not exactly a bed of roses.
Keep the Faith, Bon Jovi's fifth studio album, contains the song "Bed of Roses" (1992). It's one of the band's most well-known ballads. When asked which song he wrote for his wife, Dorothea, Jon responds, "Bed of Roses."
The couple had met when she was a teenager working at a grocery store in East Rutherford, New Jersey. She was 16 and he was forming a band. They married on February 26, 1989. The wedding ceremony was held at St. Peter's Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey and was officiated by a friend of the couple who is now a bishop. After marriage, they moved to Tennessee where Jon had been offered a job as a janitor at Columbia Records. However, due to marital problems, he quit his job and returned to New Jersey without her. While he was gone, Dorothea took care of their son, Tyler, by herself. She later said that writing "Bed of Roses" helped them get back together.
She also says that it was this song that made him realize they were meant for each other. He never played it for anyone else!
In addition to being one of their most popular songs, "Bed of Roses" has also won several awards. It came in first place at the 25th Annual Grammy Awards for Best Rock Song.
