Orbital Departures

So long, Astrogirl.

We know you have to leave us now
Though you might wish to stay;
The curtain falls, you take your bow,
And turn to walk away.

The cast and crew all gather round
You make your last encore
Theatre stills, there's not a sound
As you head for the door.

This time you've shared with us was brief -
So bright your star did burn.
Yet in our hearts lives this belief:
Some day you might return.

And so we'll keep watching the sky
Although it's just a maybe
And we won't say that it's "Goodbye",
But, "See you, Beeg Space Baby".

And even though you've spread your wings
And set out on your own,
No matter what the future brings
You're not alone -
We're not alone.

Note: If you don't know Sana, this will probably come across as sappy.  Or maybe soppy.

If you do know Sana, it will definitely come across as sappy/soppy, but also filled with references.

There was one line I wasn't happy with - the rhyme and the meter were fine, but it was clearly filler to make up the stanza.  So I checked the rhyming dictionary and there really weren't that many options and none of them worked and oh my God how did I not think of that?  Better now.

1 I watched nearly the entire stream, and even to my untrained eye, it is clear that Sana was deeply loved by her gen mates, as well as other members of Hololive.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
