God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you, and whispered "come with me"!
With tearful eye's we watched you suffer and saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, and hardworking hands at rest.
God broke hour hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best!
It's lonesome here without you and we miss you every day.
Life doesn't seem the same here, since you went away!
When days are sad and lonely and everything goes wrong
we seem to hear you whisper "cheer up and carry on"!
Each time we see your picture, you seem to smile and say...
"Don't cry I'm in God's keeping and we'll meet again someday"!
