Tick and tock
Things not forgot

Tick tock of Dads wrist
watch.
The tick an tock I hear no more.
The buzzing in my brain.
The ringing in my ear.

Sound has robbed me of my favorite part of his old wrist watch.

Just a childhood memory,of my ear pressed to Dads watch as he held my squirm to a minimum.
Allowed to cuddle an nap in the pew at church.
I would listen to the ticking of his watch,thankful of his closeness an patience.
He's gone now,i have his watch,the tick is gone, time still moves on.

Tock tick tock gone to the tinnitus.

Hashtag hearing loss is no joke.
