God saw you were getting tired,

and a cure was not to be.

So He put His arms around you

and whispered "Come with Me."

With tearful eyes,

we watched you suffer,

and saw you fade away.

Although we loved you dearly,

we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

hard working hands to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove,

He only takes the best.

I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to Love, to work or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way.

I found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah yes, these things I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life's been full, I savored much,

good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

I'm in God's hands

we will meet again some day.
