She is in Heaven

In the blink of an eye, is becomes was.
The moment is suspended in a place that you can’t see or hear, but you feel it permeate the deepest part of your heart.
You close your eyes and open them again to a new reality.
Where there was once breath, now there is a shell.
Memories are your dearest friends.
You try to recall the last embrace, the last word, the last moment your eyes met, and the last hello.
You don’t want to say goodbye, so you don’t.
Instead, you say, “I will see you again” and you let go of the tears and heartache that you withheld when is was is.
In the blink of an eye, you watched as she took her last breath, looked beyond the room, lifted her hand, and was suspended to a place that you can’t see or hear, but you know permeates the deepest part of your heart.
In the blink of an eye, her time on earth is remembered as was, and her time in Heaven becomes is...
