Played My Hand

I sat down at life's table.

The cards were dealt.

Looked at my hand.

Stayed in the game, long as I could

With my best poker-face.

Yet every hope

every dream

every goal

vanished in slow flashes.

No luck in love,

none in money,

no children,

no pets,

no assets.

When it was time,

I cashed my chips in.

There were none left.

But I enjoyed the game.

Stayed in as long as I could.

A pleasure to have played at all.
