God saw she was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around her,
And whispered “Come with me”,
With tearful eyes we watched her suffer,
And saw her fade away,
Although we love her dearly,
We could not make her stay,
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard-working hands to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best,
Although her heart stopped beating,
Her love will always remain,
Her absence puts upon our hearts,
A very heavy strain,
For now, she is in a place of everlasting rest,
We just have to understand that God,
He only takes the best.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.
Love, your daughter
