Regrets Stored - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Uncle, aunt and granny,
All poured me love in plenty.
They were gone before I could repay.

There were a great many
Who lent their hands and money.
They were gone before I could repay.

Parents gave me love and blood
And guarded me from any crash.
They were done in benevolent neglect.

Cousins, nieces and nephews,
On whom I showered honey.
Had licked it and slipped away.

There were scattered peers,
Whom I pleased in all spheres.
Ere my asking, they vanished.

Daughter and son were the hopes,
Who too, as grown up, broke their rope
And had no time to repay.

I leave as much creditors
As I have had debtors in my life.
Kindly tally, my Creator.
