Second Chance at Second Best

All of our life we are encouraged
To be the best that we can be
For many that means so little
They would rather just wait and see.

There are those that strive
To be a better person each day
To be caring, loving and kind
That people have good things to say.

What about being that special someone
What if you give all that you can
Only to find that you are second best
How should you feel as a man?

If your heart won’t let go to move on
And you wonder if you should still try
You have to ask yourself the hard question
Do you wait and hope, or just leave and cry.

So many emotions never get to be answered
Because too often we give up and run
Life isn’t always fair or even sensible
Don’t give up and say “What have I done”.

If you really love another person that much
All you can do is pour out your heart and hope
It will either be returned as something special
Or you’ll be left with the pieces to cope.
