Pink Thoughts (1)

my grandmother-
her blond locks slowly began to disappear.
the gold on her skin was reluctant to shine.
the strength she normally had no trouble exerting began to fade;
but the smile on her face or the warm in her touch never withered.
the cancer no longer claims my grandmother.
its mark, barely visible.
but the memories...they will always remain.
