Unforgettable Moment

Those were my green and salad days
My friends, my toys were all my wealth.
Marbles and pebbles, my gems and pearls.
No fear of loss or bother about gains.
Trump cards valued no less than money.
School , home and uncle’s was my world.
What comes from where and goes where
None of them, I cared about, alike prince.
To run the empire of my utopia, my dad
Fought so many battles against all odds.
Unaware of all, with joy pass my days.
Till one day to pay my fees, I remember
If anything seeped into my mind ever
Like an engraved word on copper plate.
He has to sell his  wedding watch 
On the pulse, for the first moment in life.
My eyes were wet for someone else
Other than me, painted with the colours
 Of emotion, as most memorable picture.

For a poetry contest,inspired from a real memory.

    Sensitivity and openness are not always easy to convey. You've done that guilelessly. Your writing is refreshing. Bev
