Butterfly Kisses

for Kristin & Tyler
by Aunt Tecla Wisecarver

Every night while you're in bed

While there are dreams 

running through your head,

There are butterfly kisses 

landing on your cheeks,

Your Daddy Angel is kissing you in your sleep.

 There are butterfly kisses

floating above your bed,

Dancing and singing above your head

Slowly fluttering and 

landing softly on your cheeks,

Your Daddy Angel is kissing you while you sleep.

When you wake up and open your sleepy eyes,

There will never be any good-byes…

Butterfly kisses circling around your head,

Following you long after you are out of bed.

Following you wherever you go,

Like a beautiful falling snow.
