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
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts
to prove to us
he only takes the best.
