This is a riddle

>Some people who have me
Really love me true.
Although I am not too sure.
That's what they ought to do!

And then there is those that have me not.
And they would really love a lot.
Honest they would, I jest you not.

If you therefore do have me.
You love me quite a lot.
And if you don't you would like too.
Love to have a lot.

I cannot give you more clues.
As you're bound to guess.
What some have, and some have not.
Is money did you guess?  Or not?

I only know as you might, so.
I have very little money,you know.
Until my books all do sell.
Then I'll have a lot as well.

I will not love it tenderly.
Because not long will it stay with me.
As wife will spend it rapidly.
On a house by the sea.

And of that money none  I'll see.
Unless she takes me with she.
And we will  live so happily.
In her new house beside the sea.

And this is all now, you'll get from me.
As now it is time for tea.
Although that last line is not quite right.
As I drink decaf coffee is that alright?

I have been writing far too long.
As night time has now come along.
So now I will say goodbye to you.
And try and sleep as I should do.

Good night, goodbye, oh I meant to say.
I hope some love/money soon comes your way.
