God Speed

sonnet ii
for the class of 2004

A pocket watch… Your life’s short race…
Both works of art, both bound to time,
Each saved from loss by just a thread,
A fob for one, the other, grace.
They both are spared, with one sole goal,
By winding, to be faithful tools.
Our God has wound, and readied you
To yield your life to his control.
Your final twist, God’s clicked in place;
The time is set; but it’s not yours
So use it all to serve your God,
In all things praise and seek God’s face.
Your time begins to tick my friend;
God speed! We’ll meet you at the end!
