God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He then looked down on earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
God’s Garden must be beautiful, he always take the best.
He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain.
He knew you would never get well on earth again.
He saw that the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb.
So, he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, “Peace be Thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone.
For part of went with you the day God called you home.
