God saw she was getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her
and whispered “Come with me.”
With tear-filled eyes we watched her
suffer and fade away.
Although we loved her deeply,
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
