If I Were a Clock

If I were a clock 

How happy I’d be

That all of the humans

So depend upon me

We are many, we clocks

And scarcely is found

A place where we’re not

In which humans are bound

With two hands that go ‘round

Or digital display 

We never stop working 

Through the night and the day

Time to wake up and go

To school, work, or to play

Get going, don’t be late

There’s no time to delay

Those funny humans 

Always hurrying about

See all we can make them do

Without even a shout 

Tick tock tick tock

One second at a time

There’s no stopping us now

Unless we unwind 

And still we remind them

“Life’s passing” we say

And even if we stop

We’re still right twice a day

Having served as pastor at Lewis and Clark Bible Church, in Astoria, Oregon, for almost three decades, my wife’s cancer diagnosis led to my retirement and subsequent move to Heppner to be near our two grandchildren. I divide my time between caring for Laura and working as a part time hospice chaplain and spending time with family and spoiling my chocolate lab.
