From Your Father

You got it from your father,

It was all he had to give.

So it’s yours to use and cherish,

For as long as you may live,

If you lose the watch he gave you,

It can always be replaced.

But a black mark on our name, son.

Can never be erased.

It was clean the day you took it

And a worthy name to bear,

When he got it from his father,

There was no dishonor there.,

So make sure you guard it wisely,

After all is said and done.

You’ll be glad the name is spotless,

When you give it to your son
