I have no one for company until the Man in the Moon appears and views my desperate situation.
I stare back, his serene glow wrapping me in peacefulness as I momentarily forget my shivering, painful body, and the fact I will be dead by the time the moon’s sister comes up for the third time, spreading her suffocating warmth. My hand bobs in the cool water, soothing my red raw skin as the gentle lapping against my raft brings a tranquil melody to my end song. No regrets swamp me, not even being on the cruise liner; I wanted peace and quiet and relaxation and looking up at the shining light in the pitch, I know I now have it.
And I know I am not alone, will not die alone as the Man in the Moon stays with me, bringing out the stars to serenade my passing.
