Please Give a Kiss
In loving memory of Hope Elizabeth Shiflett And her angel sibling born in 2004. 
We’ve filled out 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 the holiday bliss

There’s someone we lost that we terribly miss.

And as the Christmas day draws near

We wish with all of our hearts 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 an earthly gift

We’re asking God: “Please give her a kiss.”
