Farewell to a Wall Clock

Not too long ago, our wall clock stopped working. I had purchased the wall clock when my son was small and the clock had been on the wall for years - each day ticking away as we went about our daily lives. Now my son is grown and married - the passing of time left with the passing of the clock.

A Poem A Day

The old green wall clock
No longer ticks or tocks
Into the closet it went
No hour hand or minute hand bent

Bought when you were only five
Upon the wall it hung
There each day as you left for school
It saw the man you have become

The motor just died you see
Losing minutes day by day
Until finally six hours behind
I let is have its say

Now in the closet it sits
I am unable to toss it away
The tick tock of a lifetime
Was heard for the last time today.

A heartfelt fond farewell to a good friend.
