To the anniversary of Sharon leaving us
There is one more shining star in the sky, but there is a hole in the world now. In the place where Sharon was, there is now just nothing. A center, like no other, of memory and hope and knowledge and affection which once inhabited this earth is gone. Only a gap remains. A perspective on this world unique in this world which once moved about within this world had been rubbed out. Only a void is left. There is nobody now who saw just what she saw, knows what she knew, remembers what she remembered, loves what she loved. A person, an irreplaceable person, is gone. Never again will anyone apprehend the world quite the way she did. Never again will anyone inhabit the world the way she did. Questions we have can never now get answers. The world is emptier. A void, a gap, will never be filled.
No matter how dark, how deep the hole is, however, it does not prevent us from believing that Sharon is still around, and she may be looking at us from the sky. When we close our eyes, we may still feel her vibrant spirit, her sense of humor, her smiling face or her serious attitude on her schoolwork. Can Sharon make us feel more convincingly from this world about her existence, even with a little bit clues?
Sharon, we really, really miss you
