and found an empty space,
He then looked down upon this 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 takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
get well on earth again.
He saw 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 us went with you the
day God called you home.
Your Loving Family
