I would not have done, if I knew it earlier..


When you called me other day,
and told me your sad story,
I should have listened to you, not have done it.

When you called me middle of the night,
and told me that you had given up all hopes,
I should have listened to you only, not have done that.

When you came to my house,
cried your heart out,
I should have listened to you ONLY, not have done that.

When you made a hell out my weak heart,
pestered me to part the hard earned money,
I should have listened to you, not have lent the cash.

When I call you now,
You already changed your phone number,
several times.

When I come to your house,
your neighbors have become old,
and you shifted to a new house.

When I manage to get your new number,
and call you, you do tell me,
that I called the wrong number.

If I knew it earlier,
that you bargained my affection for money,
I would not have lent you the money,
at least I still have a friend or a relative intact.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
