Many people have seen this poem in my poetry section, but it is so well liked, and so often commented upon, I wanted to make sure it was entered in the contest. So this is the newest and best version.



I hear it more now every day.

From heaven above I heard him say,

"Remember you promised dear old Ray,

You'd never spend the principal."


I want to give my children a gift,

And now my face sure needs a lift.

But I sit here knowing he'd be miffed,

If he guessed I'd spend the principal.


My stock has tripled over the years.,

Yet I am constantly immersed in tears,

When dealing with my silly fears,

That I might spend the principal.


 I think I hear in the shower.

Every minute of every hour,

Even atop the Eiffel Tower,

"Don't ever spend the principal!"


After I'm gone I see it clear:

A corvette for my daughter dear,

A Rolls Royce for my son, I fear.

'Cause I didn't spend the principal.


I hope my children will want to save,

Enough for flowers to cover my grave,

After they've spent every cent we made,

Both the interest and the principal!
