Three Line Tales: You Gave Me Your Time Piece #amwriting #fiction #3Linetales

Thank you to Sonya of Only 100 Words for hosting #3LineTales.

1. You gave my your time piece, a silver heavy object, you kept in your suit pocket watching it often as time tick-tocked away; you were healthy, smiling, said you needed me to keep your watch close. 

2. You gave me your time piece and I did not understand why at first; it was only a silly pocket watch and it ticked and it tocked as you feverishly slept in bed, growing sickly, pale, thinner, and telling me your time was coming.

3. You gave me your time piece, I knew what it meant now; we’d no children to pass it onto, we were both so young; yet, here I am, holding your ashes in an urn and as I throw them into the troubled ocean, it occurs to me in the silence –the time piece stopped ticking.

        Thanks Rosema. I’m okay just complications in life. Sometimes since I’ve experienced depression, it’s harder to deal with stuff and not freak out; to take things in perspective. Thanks for being here 🙂

    Mandi, first it’s been a long time that I didn’t stop here and when I’m here I like to mention that I very much like your smiling picture.
    It’s a beautiful three lind tale. There’s a tone of sadness in it but I want to see you smiling 🙂
