What if we changed Mr Right to Mr Maybe
Then instead of asking if he’s Mr Right
We could ask if maybe he’s Mr Right for now
To teach what he can and then to move on
And we’ll learn not to pine after he’s gone
But realize that he was Mr Right but only for a time
And in his own little way he helped us to shine.
We can learn to grow brighter with each Mr Maybe
And one day we will see that each Mr Maybe
Was actually Mr Right . but only for now.
Or maybe we’ll recycle
Learn to value now what we didn’t back then
Love is about learning as the gambler has told
Learning when to hold and when to fold
And while life is like gambling it’s also true
That life goes on when the gambling is through.
We’re always dealt another hand
We always have a reserve stash
One more bid to make
One more hand to try
And it goes on like that until we die.
Or maybe even longer depending on belief
Maybe we get to do it over. wouldn’t that be a relief
To know it’s all a game after all
And if we don’t like the outcome we can ask for a recall.
