I think loss is a theme, but also the randonness of life ~ bad events happen.  There is such an abrupt ending with the child's death it left me feeling hopeless and sad, which i think is a direct difference from the later version he wrote in , 'a small good thing' where hope, community and forgiveness come into play at the end.
