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.

Your golden heart stopped beating,
Your hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

Don't think of him as gone away 
his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets 
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost 
and he was loved so much.
