The Persons Who Lose Their Sleep Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Any person who plans to steal
will lose his sleep, waiting for others to sleep;

A person who falls in love with a fiancee
will have no sleep for ever and you will see;

Any person who likes to enlarge his wealth
will have no sleep, irrespective of his health;

The persons who like to safeguard
the accumulated wealth also lose their sleep!

கள்வமென் பார்க்குந் துயிலில்லை காதலிமாட்டு
உள்ளம்வைப் பார்க்குந் துயிலில்லை ஒண்பொருள்
செய்வமென் பார்க்குந் துயிலில்லை அப்பொருள்
காப்பார்க்கும் இல்லை துயில். - நான்மணிக் கடிகை 7
