Tonight I drift alone on an endless sea

As far as my eyes can see, there is no one

I cannot see the shore;

the horizon is merely a distant


However, it is not solitude that I feel, but desertion

All of those near and dear to my heart have turned away

In my time of need, no one reached out to me

Should my lonely vessel capsize, no one will hear my

cry for help

And as I sink into the watery depths, no one will even

notice I am gone
