A star never fades

When a star dies you can still see the light
So that's what I thought of when I saw your tears
The memories they just don’t disappear
They live on in your heart
That sweet smell that gets in her baking
The memories you had of her at late nights
Her fruit salad she would bring to thanksgiving
And that smile I saw never leave her face.
She would never forget you, 
Always gave hugged you and talked like you knew her for years
And I guess I have,
Since the day I was born.
Her kindness never left 
Wrapping you in a blanket when snow fell.
And those memories will never fade
Even as morning comes those stars are waiting in the night.
Because when a star dies you can still see the light 
Even if it's just in your heart.

(To my beloved great-grandmother)
