Prompt for April 7, 2015

Complete the short story / flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

He stared out at the choppy turquoise sea that stretched before him and watched the kraken jumping the waves.  The red sun was setting in the east casting long shadows from the crests of the waves and reflecting from the backs of the kraken as they played.  He was going to miss this world with its beauty, but he had tarried here too long.  He hadn’t seen his beloved in a thousand worlds and ten thousand lifetimes and he ached for her presence.  He needed to move on.  He needed to leave this world behind and go to the next.  Then, with a final breath, he stepped off the bow of the ship and into the chaos of the afterlife.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
