Last week we lost a young cousin, unexpectedly in a road traffic accident. She was a bundle of colour, energy and fun. I saw her last at A’s wedding some months ago. Where of course she soon displaced the men behind the sound console and took over the DJ-ing, getting everyone out onto the dance floor. She will be sorely missed by the many people whose lives she was an integral part of.
She danced into our family 3 decades ago
Her inimitable style and her bike in tow
Around her was laughter, and on somedays tears
Rest in peace, Sharon, you’ve laid down your fears
Order and chaos, whirlwind and calm
Now breathe on us solace, soul’s comfort and balm
