I held her in my arms today, as we looked death squarely in the eyes.

“I’m scared” she whispered.

Pale-faced. Body trembling.

“I searched for him all my life.

My love.

He’s here now.

I don’t want to leave him.

So soon.”

Time, distorted and elastic.

Seconds last an eternity.

Days merge into minutes.

Grief and love.

One temporary, the other eternal.
