Tuesday Writing Prompt- Heaven

Keep it alive

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

Today’s prompt—Heaven in her eyes

Her heart holding mine in a hug of comfort

And her eyes shedding tears of happiness

And for a moment, we both experienced paradise
