Money Or Love? - Poem by Elora Cooper

If you had the choice,
Which would you choose?
Money or love,
If one you had to lose.

If you chose money,
You’d never be in need,
You could have what you like,
Many ways you could lead.

You could buy a big house,
With a swimming pool,
Or you could hire a date,
Over which you could drool.

You could get on TV,
Or win lots of ‘friends’,
Or you could travel the world,
It seems the fun never ends.

But think about this,
When you’re alone,
Who will be there,
When you have a moan?

Who will be there,
To kiss you goodnight,
To share the beauty of a view,
To squeeze and hold you tight?

You’ll have lots of money,
But with whom will you share?
Who’ll travel the world with you?
Who’ll make up the pair?

You may think you have it all,
With lots of cash,
But you’ll become selfish,
And hopes of friendships you’ll dash.

What is life,
With no one to share?
No one to love,
And no one to care?

You could travel abroad,
But with whom?
You could stay in hotels,
But who to share the room?

If you ask me,
Which way I would go,
I would choose love,
Over the bigger show.

I’d rather share life,
With someone I love,
To look after me,
To give me a shove.

I’d gladly be poor,
With you by my side,
Than have money and all,
With no one to confide.

It’s better that way,
Without all the greed,
To have someone to love,
Is how you succeed.
