I think "privilege" is better than "right" in this context.

权利

literally means rights, but privilege has a profound meaning, compare to it, "rights" feels very shallow

I like the word privilege here.

the word privilege has a profound meaning, when "rights" compare to it seems so shallow

a few adjustments

A word, plain as it maybe, of speaks of a cringing heart on many a cold, endless night. I think, even the chance to feel sorrow is a privilege. To me the past is forgettabl ...

Hi, I took note of your comment. Actually, i arranged my sentence structure according to a proverb:a drunken mind speaks a sober heart. Sorrow can be a verb, right? Ru yan basically mean elusive, you try to remember but all you get are some shifting bits, sometimes clear and sometimes vague, just like the wind blowing in fog, haha..

因为,一个平淡的词语,常包藏着无数寒夜里的心悸。我想,能够悲伤也是一种权利。往事如烟,往事又并不如烟。

That's because, a word, though plain as it may be, often contains the heart-throbing in countless cold nights.  So I come to think, to

I'd like to give it a try to the last sentences:
Somehow life is like smoke, and somehow it is not.
