Lovely flow, just got swept away to the end. It is very gentle in the way it touches on the pain of loss. Enjoyed, thanks for posting.

Although it reminded me of the day the dolphin swam away, I see this as a very sad tale of lost love. Very beautiful, but do remember that there are many more fish, (and mammals) in the sea.
