God saw you were getting tired,
and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arm 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,
you’re now at peaceful rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
