The Value of a Partner

(Heartily presented to Prince Charles especialy on a wedding occasion) When I met him in the market He wasn’t feeling very well Walking very slow and having a cough When I started my conversation I found: his heart was still burning He said,’ what’s your meaning? Do you need a partner? I wasted my life for my children When I was young I had lost my wife And never have second, Thought Perhaps she will not care properly to my children But in my olden days I found it: that was my main mistake Not to having a partner for me Why are you agreeing to have one? When my children was child I care for them When they grown up Never came back to see me I failed to fight with my loneliness A person cannot understand The value of a partner It is a matter of understanding? If a person is not able To read the feelings of a heart The beauty has no matter for him.
