goodbye Millvina Dean

left Southhampton
for opportunity;
only a two-month-old baby:
saved in Lifeboat 13;
there's a Lucky Number,
unlike 4-14-1912;

died 97 years later,
on May 31,
in her sleep;

she was one of 706 saved,
while 1, 517 perished:
380 miles southeast
of Newfoundland:

the last survivor
of a titanic disaster.

June 6, 2009.
