Holiday in Heaven
In loving memory of Hope Elizabeth Shiflett and her angel sibling -- born into Heaven in 2004 
We've filled our hearts full of holiday cheer
and shopped for presents for loved ones this year.
The house is dressed up with garland and lights
that sparkle and shine though the holiday nights.

But even with all of this holiday bliss
there's someone we lost that we dearly miss.
And as this Christmas Day draws near
we wish with all of out hearts that she was here.

She's living her life way up past the stars,
somewhere past Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars.
She's spending her Christmas in Heaven, you see
and last night as I slept, a dream came to me.

I was looking in her eyes and holding her tight
and realized that someday, when the time is right -
I'll love her forever, in Heaven that is,
though in my heart she already lives.

She's left many gifts for us deep down inside
that we find everyday with our eyes open wide.
Each one is unique and wrapped brightly in love,
they shine from our hearts as she shines from above.

A special angel now hangs from our tree
for we are no longer a family of three.
And since we can't give her and earthly gift
we're asking God: "Please give her a kiss."
