God saw you getting tired.

And a cure was not to be;

So he put his arms around you,

And whispered, “Come to me”.

With tearful eyes we watched you,

And saw you pass away;

Although we loved you dearly,

We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Hardworking hands to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.
