Y/ One regret

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'

    at deathbed.... a man could have only regret for undue kindness and compassion. Material world could never help his mind, heart and soul for cosy and comfort... YOU WROTE THE THOUGHT EXCELLENTLY..! !

    Such a beautiful one, indeed a precious mind...so before we are heading the last step to the our world end, lets try the best to be the one we should be...time is still giving us a chance, will we use the chance_Soul
