What my dad left me after he passed away 我的爸爸离开我时留给我的 ...


My dad left me nothing
...
except this watch
and memories, 
some good and some not so good
...
regardless, 
it remains close to my heart 
...

A watch ...

Each time you look at this watch I'm sure you see your father. Hopefully you can always concentrate on the good.

A watch that you can not turn back time, only to turn tabs of your life to remind you of your father. And that makes it unique.

Great or not so great memories, the watch is very tangible!

Parents have a profound effect on our lives no matter their actions.

Your story reminds me my husband's story. He treasures his memories and his father's watch.

Ciao Wong, I believe that your father has left all of himself inside you and this watch is a symbol of your union!

Have a great day!

Your photo is emotional Wong, or is it the words which go with the photo which are evoking emotions? Either way it's a emotional piece, both the watch and this post.
