Hidden between rocks, the ocean —
Returns a treasure.
A time piece once given.
A woman’s long hair blows,
Trailing in winds.
She inspects the pocket watch —
Before dropping it off the —
Cliff it tumbles,
Onto rocks, clattering sounds lost —
In the darkness of nights,
Grip so intense.
Ocean steals the pocket watch —
Woman stares down below peering —
Her Grandfather’s watch,
Forever lost, his presence grieved.
Into cold bitter waters enclosing,
Covered in waves.
Gone for years, taken away.
Now a small boy picks up —
A watch and —
Smiles, his new treasure found.
Dangling it infront of him he —
Puts it to —
His ear; ticking, never stopped.
