If This Watch Could Talk

I never asked you to put me on a pedestal,

I never pleaded with you for anything,

As your flawed humble servant, and companion,

I never asked for any lofty expectations from the start.

Yet always as time passes you return from your withdrawal,

Yet always as you look to your left I am in your being,

As my hard charging and unforgiving constant, and renewing salvation,

I’ll always be keeping an even pace with your heart.
