My father's watch

I notice stopped.

His movement ceased

To turn the cogs,

That spin the gears,

Which move the dials,

That give the promise

Of a while.

 

The watch now mine,

But still it's stopped.

It sits inside a precious box.

The frozen hands,

My Father still, 

His whispered breath,

His secrets kept.

Regret, regret. 

 

One day ready 

To wear that watch,

I'll move the gears,

Start time again. 

In good knowing,

The time I'm stood

Will come to be,

Eventually.
