Can't find the words

What is it? Fate? Karma? Are the moons not in the right phase or is their alignment with some planet tied to war?

Just got a call today that a relative has died. Now I take death with a bit of stoic attitude but this is getting beyond depressing. In the last ten years it seems that a relative or friend or coworker has died. Without fail the grim reaper has graced someone I have known on a yearly basis. I realize that we all grow old and our time on this earth is limited but these people ranged in age from 43 to 85. The really hard part is having spoken to some of them just a few weeks prior. Is there some strange cosmic void that we slip into from time to time where nothing seems to go right while another proves to be a place where all goes right no matter what happens. When waves of bad things happen and your are powerless to do anything about it you have no choice but to go with the flow and hope that their duration is short. And fortunately bad things don't last forever.

To better times

The older you get the more they drop off, then one day it's your turn.
