This work has reached the exceptional level
They turn to gold!


by Belinda

As I break my piggy bank
Coins of memories
Scatter on my table
Ready to tell
My life episodes

I prepare myself to watch
Moments of thrills
Moments of woe
Moments of struggle
Moments of defeat
Rings of laughter
Flow of tears

The coins now
All and each
Are glowing
Like gold!
I begin to wonder
Is it possible
The flying years
Me, growing old
Or... my God
Has been so kind
To alter my point of view?

I reach the coins
Caress them one by one
In awe and longing
Then it slowly dawns on me
A simple truth
I'm rich!

I haven't posted in ages. I hope I still retain my touch in poetry. Thanks to Google Images for the photo.
