Today is the 11th memorial day of my very good friend's baby- Shalhevet, who was murdered by a sniper in Hebron.
I wrote this two years ago.
May her name never be forgotten.
A baby of love and happiness she was
Bearing the flammable name of light
Laughter and giggle, grace and innocence
Only good lights the heart at her sight.
A baby of purity and softness she was
To her loving parents- a jewel in the crown
Exhibiting cheerful childish pleasantness
Reflecting only well upon our small town.
A baby of total devotion she was
raised in the city of our forefathers
Crawling on the holy and harsh soil
Unaware of the evil that gathers.
A baby of everlasting eternity she is
Cruelty and hatred are to take the blame
For she has left us for the time being
Forever will she be light and flame.
