Floppy-Hat Girl

Little girl
   with floppy hat
And smile that holds
   A secret 

Your eyes
   are deep
Soft, and caring
   Love alive 

Little girl
   we miss you so
Your voice, your giggle
   Puppy barks 

Your brothers
   and your sister
Feel hard the soft spots where
   You played 

Your Mama
   and your Papa
Long for morning snuggles
   Blankie tickles 

Your voice
Echoes from heaven
   Sweet songs 

Little girl
   we’ll see you soon
Our days pass quickly, time
   Painfully slow 

Little girl
   with smile from Heaven
And hat that
   Hides a secret
