All that remains for me,
In this world, after this,
Is, but to take a kiss
For what a kiss should be;

To stake one's heart to win,
Yet have no heart to lose:
Now I am free to choose,
Now, let the game begin!

If my hand shakes and swerves
A little as I play,
Well, such a yesterday
Was trying for one's nerves.

But I am wary, see!
I know the game at last.
I know the past is past,
And what remains for me:

To play a lighter stake,
Nor lay one's heart above,
And to have done with love
For ever, for your sake.
