One year

I made a resolution

No more gambling

Stick with what I got

Then I met you

Straight away I knew

That you’re the jackpot

The ultimate prize

Without you in my life

No other vice would suffice

So against all advice

In outward defiance

Of all who considered it unwise

I took the gamble

I bet it all

On you

Now every day

When I see your face

I know I won


Response to the Word of the Day Challenge prompts: resolution, jackpot and wisdom
