Beautifully written, but a hellava way to end a romantic story. One of the best stories I've read in a long time on this WEBsite.

It Is Very, Very Seldom

that we get true tragedy in a classical sense on this site, but you have introduced us to it in this story. Thank you for a fine piece of writing!

Nice story, articulately told

Without the sad ending it would have been a 5, but that's just my preference; life is sad enough already.

Good story, sad ending

Good writing, I was hoping Nina would help him keep going

Thank God for Nina

I think it all became clear with two comments, He said " I'll be with my mother soon", and the fore shadowing about he sailors passing by.

I really enjoyed this, and fully understood his desire for peace, however sad.

Thanks

Wonderful story!

As a parent, the thought of a visit or phone call with such tragice news can flit across your mind. The idea of carrying on beyond the loss of a family seems impossible; and this story has illustrated that so artfully.

5 stars

Sigh!

I am unable to push the sadness away - what a tragic (and well-written) story.

Excellent,But...

Sorry but there are enough disappointments in life without having a "high",which this story was providing beautifully, fall through the floor to become a bummer of the LOWest order.
Come on! The guy finally finds a second chance for love only to step off a cliff,or in this case,a sandbar and pass into the vast abyss?!
Such a well-written, beautifully conveyed tale ending horribly. A 5+ dropped to a 4 rating due to such an unhappy ending. Can't fiction provide a little joy,so often unaccounted for in real life?
Sincerely though,you did a masterful job.

Well written, but

in the end, he was a wimp. Fate, God, or the universe showed him there was a second chance at happiness, and he decides to piss all over it ?

A fine story, I understand the main character's pain. But suicide remains a permanent solution for an impatient person, to a temporary problem.

I was a widower at 23, with a 3-year old daughter. I thought that sucked worse than anything. I was wrong. Three years later, my little angel was diagnosed with AMMoL and went so fast the doctors couldn't believe it. THAT sucked.

Spent some time in a bottle, considered "going out beyond the sand bar" but I just didn't give a shit enough. Plus my (estranged) parents were still alive, I didn't hate them enough to put them through that. No parent should ever outlive their child. I wish God had given me that clear a sign, I'd have clung to it like a life-raft. But what he gave me was time. Which, if you're not standing still, makes a difference, albeit slowly.

Thirty-something years later, new family, two grown kids, second wife and I will celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary in a couple months.

My wife died two years ago

And I still miss her everyday. Awesome story slyc_willie! To the previous commenter, it depends on your age. You were 23, while certainly painful, it should be normal to start over with so much of your life ahead of you. I was 45, we had 23 years of loving memories. Everything in the USA, South America, and Europe reminded me of her. I was a ghost walking the Earth for a year. I had to move to Thailand to start over. Here everything is so alien it is a clean slate. I teach English and work with local Thai people. I have a beautiful and loving new girlfriend. She and her mom run a restaurant in the local market. Her dad was a Buddist monk for 3 years, but now he drives a bus. About once a month we go fishing and drink Blend 285 whiskey. I've taught him to scuba dive. It is a good life. The ocean water here is clear and full of fish. Even so, I still have overwhelming grief for a few minutes about once a month when I remember the good times that are gone. If my wife had died at 60, I'd probably punch my ticket. Who knows, we all have to walk our own path. These bodies are just meat rentals.

Thank you again to the author for an original and challenging story. Cheers >=)
