    Well I have some things from an article:

    opposition of life and death, living in order to move closer to death

    All life is a movement toward
    death, Neruda associates time with death

    time symbol serves as a bridge between the related themes of death and of solitude

    It looks like they all tie in with the fact that every living creature dies. Death provides the ultimate solitude.
