Treasure Island

Claude H Oliver II

(Nov.7,1948 / New York City)

Time


When we enter this place
We enter to the pace
Of this
Designer of our existence
Time to be born
Time to eat
Time to sleep
Time to grow
Time to work
Time to walk
Time to run
Time to hurt
Time to heal
Time to hate
Time to love
Time to feel
But no matter what times we meet
There is one time we can't defeat
The time to die

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
