It is that unexpected happening that throws us for a curve
Insane moments we surmount and move through
Then frightfully have them suck the air from our cocoon
We watch disease riddled final days from a safe distance

Life happens
Then it halts with grinding force

And yet we seldom anticipate it until sorrow claws into us
Remorsefully we are then ashamed at our behavior
We beat ourselves up for not calling, not listening
Not being supportive or present
Not witnessing the wave upon us
And in the horror of the night, we wonder when it will be our turn.
