Gift of Your Gold Watch

Gold watch for 40 years
Thanks, your friends convey
Like the life you live
You’ve given it away

A symbol of your life
One of integrity
The right way to do things
Done with humility

A task difficult
No glory here this day
Let me hear your voice
Do it anyway

Know what is important
Taking time to care
With heart of compassion
And an open ear

When I just can’t do it
No clear vision see
Let me hold this gift
Let your life speak to me

In the golds reflection
The treasure here to be
Focus of souls binding
In ones blessed by Thee

We see this watches beauty
But soul knows true value
In the way, you’ve lived
Our Christ shared through you
