An old watch keeps time in my pocket.
Does it show the time of the day?
Or spin away the remaining hours of a lifetime?
With numbers big and bold,
And hands covering the face of old
I take out my treasure
And watch as the hours spin away.
The second hand dances around the watch face,
As the minutes crawl on by
I’m hypnotized by the circular motion
As I watch the hours fly into the abyss
And the days of my life spin away
