It Comes To All

"It comes to all.  We know not when,
or how, or why.  It's always been
a mystery, a frightening thing, 
enshrouded in the silencing.
When suddenly a loved one dies 
we seem to sort of paralyze,
to just stop still within our track.
And oh, how much we want them back."

excerpted from "When A Loved One Dies"
by Dolores Dahl, Suddenly Alone
