There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    Hi
    this statement, "I didn't know you had a job"
    1. I thought the rule of the past form is to turn only one verb to past form not two verbs?
    in this case do->did and Have->had
    2. is saying to someone you had a job means you no longer employed and you were employed in the past and not anymore?

    thx

    @marcus "I didn't know you had a job."

    Here they are probably saying "I didn't know you had found a job."

    We often shorten things in English.

    As for the verbs. Don't get too caught up in rules.

    Your example uses a main verb (to know) and an auxiliary verb (to have). You can play with them a bit.

    I have a job. (This means I am employed.)
    I had a job. (This means I was employed in the past.)
    I knew you had a job. (This means you were aware I had one, but doesn't tell us whether I still have it, or not.)
    I didn't know you had a job. (This means you were not aware I had one, but doesn't tell us whether I still have it, or not.)
