Mother’s Watch

I sit beside you, Mom
On death?s doorstep you lay
I set my head upon your wrist
As I bow my head to pray

The world to me shut off
The silence here is thick
Alone just you and I
And your watch?s rhythmic tick

I block out all my pain
And loss I?m sure to feel
I concentrate now deeply
On the tick your watch reveals

I sit here now for days
And hear the rhythmic sound
I contemplate you being gone
The thought now seems profound

The time for you is near
To enter Heaven?s Gate
I?ll stay here by your side
Until your journey is complete

It?s months now since you?ve passed
My wounds are healing slow
I want so much to hear your voice
To see your smile?s glow

I lay my head upon my wrist
When my feelings are too strong
I hear your watch?s rhythmic tick
And know you?re never gone
