Time caught up with me when I wasn’t watching

I am now unprepared for the days ahead

As they come to pack up my office

We’re moving blocks away

Where we will sit high on the hill looking down on the ocean

Where the sunset glows across our windows

And rainbows appear each time the rain falls

Birds sing happily as they circle around us

Will the birds lose their happiness when anger follows

From those whose houses laid beneath us

And graves were swallowed up

To make room for your plaza

May god forgive you

The departed wait gracefully for your departure

You may not live through their wrath

Prepare for the awakening of the departed
