Y/ One Regret - Poem by Aufie Zophy

A man on his deathbed
Here is what he said:
'I have only one regret'

'I have tried to be good,
To be as rich as I could'

Then about the regret, his voice grew quite faint:
'My regret is not to have lived more like a Saint'

While reading my past thoughts in my 'thoughts-book', I encountered this story in proze. It is not my own original idea but i had failed to write down its source.
