No Vaccine

When someone dies, there's no vaccine, no innoculation,
to keep us from the disease of sorrow and suffering.
There is no way to be prepared for the wave of suprise, horror, and inexplicable emotion that carries us up into its embrace.
A brother,
a sister,
a baby,
a mother,
a father,
a grandma,
a grandpa,
a husband,
a wife,
a friend-
To love inevitably means pain, and there is no innoculation for Grief.
