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 eyes we watched you slowly fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, we would not ask you to stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.
