so far away that we only see their light
long long after the star itself is gone.
And so it is with the people that we love—
their memories keep shining ever brightly
though their time with us is done.
But the stars that light up the darkest night,
those are the lights that guide us.
As we live our days, these are the ways we remember."
Painting: Starry Night, Van Gogh, Saint-Rémy, France: June, 1889
