Four Little Salt Shakers

Four little salt shakers on a shelf,

Reminding me of a part of myself.

Each represents a precious gift;

Daughters to spend eternity with.

A shaker for each, a gift from me,

To remind you of things of eternity.

Remember you're sisters, each shaker the same,

Drawn from the same silver, each bearing our name.

In viewing your shaker over the years,

Remember each other, but never the tears

Remember the fun you had in our home,

Remember the love that seals you as one.

Remember you'll tarnish, as these shakers have,

The tarnish of age, but this too will pass.

For you at His coming, no tarnish will bear,

But return to our presence, our mansion to share.

Four little salt shakers on a shelf,

Reminding me of a part of myself.

Remember each other - always be kind,

Remember we love you, your Mother and I.
