SONNET XXXVII - REBIRTH

I gave my heart to you and was decieved
I gambled all and all my love was lost
I took a chance because I once believed
that in the end, true love is worth the cost
I took a vow, forsaking all the rest
I never knew how hard my heart would fall
for in the end, you made me second best
and second best made me nothing at all
now only cold and bitterness remain
just giving up seems safe, but I'll be brave
my devasted faith will rise again
when true love comes to lift me from this grave
   there's always one more chance for love's rebirth
   as long as I remember what I'm worth
