The girl next door borrowed my watch,

She went to a concert,
the watch on her freckled wrist,
visible on snapchat as she took a 'selfie'.

The light blue strap matched her distressed
denim jeans,
the sparkles matched her smile.

But she wasn't given time,
To run,
To escape,
To live!

Her loved ones wanted forever,
would have settled for years,
even moments,
to say goodbye.

Instead they've been given eternity,
to hold her in their hearts,
never in their arms.

She never gave the watch back.
